Fish Festival in charming Porto Santo Stefano

Not only will it be a delicious food festival with fresh local fish and seafood-based delicacies, it will be unique: in fact, visitors will enjoy their meals on the stern of the fishing boats owned by local fishermen!

The lovely sea village of Porto Santo Stefano will celebrate a Fish Festival, called “Tutti a Poppa” (literally – everybody on the stern), on the days 24 and 25 May 2015. The initiative promotes local products and gastronomic tourism, something that can be enjoyed all year-round, even during fall and winter.

The event will officially begin on Saturday 24 May at 9:00 AM, when the decorated fishing vessels will arrive – loaded with freshly caught fish – at the harbor in Via del Molo.

On the mornings of both days, the Antiques Market will open on Lungomare dei Navigatori, while the Food Market with “Zero Kilometer” (local) products will open on Molo della Pilarella.
