  • That delights! Honey: yummy and more than genuine; Apples: yellow, red, "cola cola" and "ice cream" (native of Etna quality); chestnuts, mushrooms, grapes and wine. jams, tea leaves and then rolls-tip one with grilled sausage on the tile and outline of "caliceddi" (local vegetable that grows wild in the surrounding countryside). The Festival always so busy but very well organized. Good Sunday in October at all!

  • Curiosity led me to see what it was, the event attracts a large number of visitors, then row upon row, with queues in kilometers just to reach that "goal". Break into a sea of people where chaos, the noise and the noise confuses the ideas of many patrons. I've never seen in any town in Italy to park cars on the crosswalk and claim the cost of the ticket for parking by personnel authorized to do so. As in a local fair, you will find everything from chestnuts to cleaning products for interiors. And exit the box of advertising slogans about local products. Files anywhere ... before and after paying. Esageratissimi product costs. No thorough check. Cheeses and meats exposed to the Sun and the fresh air. And it is in these circumstances that you have to be careful about what you buy. But mostly what you eat. Unwelcome guests than ever imagined! X me is really bad! A prickly pear paid 1 € ... likely came the service to peel the fruit! I have seen people acting like sellers of apples in 2 minutes. Never a coffee so long at the bar. 1 hour to queue up and taste it! Unfortunately experience shows and I assure you that never return to this place these days. Be smart ... Choose top destinations!

  • Unfortunately I am forced to say that none of us (Group of bikers calabresi who every year take part in this event--about 50 bikers from Reggio Calabria and prov.) will return in the years to come, as the ottobrata Zafferana for this year there was an unfortunate episode that put in serious difficulty (me in particular); the theft of the modular helmet worth around 300.00 euros related to my bike lock and stainless steel cable (cut with tronchesa); the difficulties in returning home were enormous given the fact that as a passenger I had my wife (returned home with passage of fortune in car). So I invite all bikers who respect, "don't stay longer in Hong Kong for OTTOBRATA" as it circulates such scum that can cause these immense discomfort when it comes to motorcycles. I state that in 12 years of wandering through the beautiful Italy motorbike, it's never happened! W the bike down with this Sicily

  • Every year is a must! It's a tradition that repeats. shame about the ever-present rain every year tries to ruin the appointment ... but just gear up that everything passes. over the years it went to progress getting really indispensable! It is obvious from the pilgrimage of people ... every year is a mess if you don't get there early in the morning and do not Park in the highlights and then leave the town of Zafferana without trauma:) Great layout of stalls and also that of artisans along the way ... keep it up! We will be more and more!!

  • disappointing experience and park far away from the Center in a highway devoid of layers used and bans, I was repeatedly chased by anonymous valets entrusted by the municipality to collect the sum of euro3 required. shame to the municipality of zafferana.

  • I would expect the main protagonists of the Ottobrata in Zafferana Etna were chestnuts and typical products. The main course was flooded with stalls of bracelets, necklaces, earrings etc ... it was like being in a feast of the Patron Saint. Here and there, outnumbered, some stand of chestnuts, apples, honey etc. But what disappointed me is not only the presence of merchants that had nothing to do with the products of Etna, but especially having bought 5 kg of chestnuts that I had to throw, from the first to the last, because sick and full of worms. Believe me! A chestnut good in 5 kg couldn't find her.
