SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mardi Gras is coming up in a couple of weeks, to be celebrated in several countries around the globe. The Carnival of Venice belongs to the classiest festivals with its spectacular masquerade galas annually held in splendid Venetian palaces. Lavish balls, a rich program, distinct and elaborate costumes and masks, a unique historic setting—just to name a few—attract millions of visitors to the Carnival in Venice yearly.

A one-of-a-kind experience and passion for Venice inspired Barbora Calaba to write unique digital guide for inquisitive visitors who want to get the best out of their carnival trip. Ms. Calaba said, "There are many ways to spend a wonderful time during the carnival in Venice, and I bore that in my mind when working on this guide. Not everyone can afford to pay €500 for a palazzo gala ticket, but it does not mean that one should put his carnival travel plan 'on a bucket list,' as the festival programming has plenty to offer. The daily program on the St. Mark's Square 'stage' is for free, and so are traditional carnival parades and people watching. You really don't need to buy or rent an expensive period costume and mask to blend in if you don't want to. You can involve your creativity and make your own, and that's what counts and makes you stand out in the masked crowd. There are also a couple of renowned mask-making workshops. The artisans give workshop attendees an insight into traditional papier-mache technique craftsmanship and help them create their own masks. These workshops are very popular among visitors to Venice. Therefore, a well-ahead reservation is highly recommended."

Carnival of Venice eGuide describes the carnival's history, traditions, places, current carnival program, and historic figures of the Carnival of Venice. It also includes a list of must-do activities and practical information regarding one's stay in Venice.

Carnival of Venice eGuide is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Books, iTunes, and Kobo for $4.99. Mobile and tablet applications are going to be available on the App Store and Google Play for $1.99 in 3 weeks from now.
