Merchants of Venice come to Paris


Venice isn’t sinking anytime soon.

In fact, the Venetians are bringing their famous carnival to Paris this weekend, for a two day celebration at Port de Plaisance in the Bastille. Expected to draw over 20,000 visitors, the waterways of Paris will be transformed by gondolas and elaborately dressed Venetians.

In the words of Truman Capote, ” Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go. ”

In that case, lets indulge. Especially if any hot gondola boys are involved.


Porte de Plaisance. Metro: Bastille. 2:30-5:30pm Saturday and Sunday.

    Hello petiteB,
    A box of liquor chocolate in one go…! Hem, I hope they were with chili too. Actually you should try the ‘chocolat de bayonne’, with ‘piment d’espelette’. It will certainly turn you up side down.
