Argentario: the Pirates are Back!

The 9th edition of La Notte dei Pirati 2015 (The Night of the Pirates) will take place in the sea village of Porto Ercole on 8, 9 and 10 of May 2015.

There is a different daily program, including scavenger hunt games for younger and older pirates, costume parades and fireworks on the sea. On the last day of the event, prizes are awarded to the best dressed pirate crew and to the pirate coves with the best decorations (oh yes, each team has its own cove… and all local bar and restaurants transform themselves as well!).

On 10 May, at 5:30 PM, a cannon shot will mark the beginning of the exciting “Corsair Regatta” race. Here is the itinerary that participants will have to follow 🙂
