Everyone was in party mood, music and laughter everywhere. Very well organised and the staff were helpful. Friendly bars and restaurants willing to help a non-italian speaking tourist.

Having lived in Italy for a number of years I have been to quite a few festivals, especially music festivals, but the Buskers Festival tops the lot. An absolute amazing experience, so many different talented buskers to enjoy. Plan to return next year
