VIDEO. Art’e Gustu fills up in Bonifacio

The cliffs of Bonifacio host the Art’e Gustu festival for the first time throughout the weekend.

After two years of absence linked to the Covid-19 pandemic, the event once again brought together crowds and artisans, producers and breeders.

Access to the citadel has been restricted but many free shuttles allow you to reach the festival from the car parks in the lower town.

“There are a hundred exhibitors, there are always masterclasses, workshops, street food spaces to taste and picnic, only we are now in a space four times larger than in Aleria. We can achieve the expectations of the public here”.

As soon as it opened, visitors came from all walks of life to discover a selection of the best island products and, above all, to taste.
