Security Advice for Attending event


On the occasion of the most important events of the Venice Carnival 2020, a specific Security Plan has been prepared, which sets out for each day the security measures as well as the behavioural rules and evacuation procedures to be followed.

To attend the show, we suggest you position yourself along the Fondamenta of the Rio di Cannaregio. We recommend you arrive well ahead of time. We advise against the more crowded areas to those who have reduced mobility or use wheelchairs or pushchairs, etc. One-way routes may be set up or other modifications made to pedestrian traffic.

At the end of the parade we invite you to move away in order to allow other people to attend the next show.


!! AVM/ACTV informs that on Saturday February 8th and on Sunday February 9th 2020 the transport service on the 3, 4.1, 4.2, 5.1, 5.2 lines will be modified because of the Festa Veneziana sull’Acqua – first and second part.

To guarantee the safety of the event, the 4.1, 4.2, 5.1, 5.2 lines will stop at Sant’Alvise instead of Tre Archi: here is the communication explaining the changes in detail.
