A weekend between… tradition and shopping!

Good morning dear guests,

what happens this week end in Torri del Benaco?

Here is the interesting programm for the next days.

On Saturday 11th June, do not miss the famous competition “Palio delle Bisse” in Torri del Benaco. It deals of the first race of the championship “Bandiera del Lago 2016″. Every week the boats challenge in different places on the lake.
The “Bisse” were ancient boats that were used for fishing on the lake through the ages. They have a characteristic shape (a narrow keel and pointed ends). Four men are needed to row the boat, gondolier-style through the water.

Programm of the event:

At 7.30 p.m.  parade with paddlers and boats in the town centre.

At 8.15 p.m. boats parade in the lake along the coast

At 8.45 p.m. competition starting

To close the event, at 11.00 pm, the spectacular firework show on the Lake.

In case of bad weather, the event will be postponed to another date.

And after the traditional event Palio delle Bisse, here is a good news for shopping lovers: on Sunday 12th June the “Mercato del Forte” comes back to Torri. As usual the booths, coming from Tuscany, offer made in Italy items, especially leather bags, cashmere and home furnishing. Good value for money!
