Visit one of the world?s largest carnivals, the Carnaval de Nice, this February

11th January, 2016
Between the 13th and 28th February 2016, the French Riviera city of Nice will become home to Europe?s biggest party and one of the largest carnivals in the world, the Carnaval de Nice.

For 15 days and 15 nights, the streets of the city will see numerous colourful parades pass through them, complete with over a thousand musicians and dancers from around the world, gigantic decorated floats and incredible figurines made from papier-mâché by the Carnavaliers. Each procession is made up of 18 floats, promising unforgettable entertainment for the crowds of thousands they pass as they work their way up to the vibrant celebrations held on the Place Masséna. 

One of the highlights of the carnival is the Flower Parade, where a host of colourful and extravagantly dressed characters stand on beautiful floats covered in stunning floral compositions and throw over 100,000 flowers into the crowds lined along the Promenade des Anglais. By night, the Parade of Lights illuminate in the darkness, creating a magical end to the sights witnessed throughout the remainder of the carnival.
