Porcini Festival in Oriolo Romano, a town with a population of 3,700

Oriolo Romano (Italy)

The Porcini Festival has been held since 2003 in the city of Oriolo Romano in Viterbo province, about 60 kilometers from Rome.
It is a famous festival in nearby prefectures, with nearly 2,000 visitors a day when it is common in a small town with a medieval population of about 3,700.
For the 15th time this year (2018), we were blessed with fine weather.

When you come to the Porcini Festival in Oriolo Romano, you'll want to visit the Palace of Artieri. Built between 1578 and 1585, the palace is home to a gallery full of papal paintings, along with numerous frescoes.

The Porcini Festival in Oriolo Romano, where you can enjoy your eyes and stomach,

(1) Around 10:00 a.m., look at the stalls while enjoying the square and the townscape around the venue.
(2) At around 11:30 a.m., at around 11:45 a.m., they start to line up to buy lunch tickets.
(3) After eating lunch slowly, visit the Altieri Palace

The course is recommended. The reason is that

Italians usually don't like to complain and line up, but when food is involved, the long line is fine!?

Italians usually don't like to complain and line up,

but when food is involved, the long line is fine!?

If you don't mind moving home, you can visit the stall in half a day from noon or visit the Artieri Palace to coincide with the dinner that starts at 19:00.
