  • to access the country we had to leave the car in kilometres, unnecessary shuttle bus, expect too much, you might as well get sti km walk, drove into the city seemed to be in a circle of Dante's inferno, a large number of people to keep you from walking even at a snail's pace, inadequate toilet facilities at many appearances in town, manage bars and restaurants too busy to be minimally helpful with customers , I mean next year although there are illustrious names of artists I go to enjoy the evening in peace in a quiet place, at least 20 km from san vito

  • Every year the Cous Cous Fest is an event not to be missed, with the race of chefs, tastings of couscous (portions) and the shows in the square every night different and always welcome guests. A Sicilian feast which always points to the Union between peoples and cultural exchange.

  • A must see for lovers of taste, couscous fest is more than a Festival, it's a cultural experience, a dip in the Mediterranean culinary traditions and artistic works, is a meeting of cultures that embrace each other in a spirit of peace. As for the practical info you eat couscous in all modes, 10 euro ticket that includes a big portion of couscous cooked in many different recipes from various countries of the Mediterranean and beyond, 10 euro the show of chefs, and then free shows in the square and much folklore

  • I found the event very beautifully. The entire city is a perfect organization. In every street there are lights and there is an air of celebration. A compliment to a Sicilian excellence.

  • Honestly I expected more! Cous cous not good and poorly organized! The redeeming factor was the musical show, just for that I give 3 stars!

  • Truly a beautiful atmosphere, guessed the time is done, very good reason to visit a beautiful seaside town like San Vito Lo Capo. If you enjoy local dishes and good fish enjoying a breathtaking view while sipping fine wine, is the place for you!
