Sunday was a big carnevale day in Fano, one of the towns a bit further north in Le Marche so myself and some friends headed there on the train to have a look!

It was great!  Fab atmosphere,  loads of massive floats with bits that moved and dancing and best of all, sweets. They just chucked loads of sweets from the floats (when I say chucked I think some of the throwees were wannabe snipers and certainly got a few head shots in. There’s probably worse ways to go than being killed by chocolate though). We had quite a bit of a collection at the end though I suspect not as big as the folks who’d taken their umbrellas and upturned them to catch all the sweets!

  1. Hi Sue. Nice blog. The festival in Jesi was the Palio di San Floriano, FYI. Come and pay me a visit sometime, I’m just up the road from you. Claire.

    • Many thanks Claire! It’s good to put a name to these things. Would love to catch up! If I can dig out your email on this thing I’ll send you an email and perhaps we can meet up for an aperitivo one day 🙂

    • Hi Claire! Great to hear from you and thanks for getting back to me on the Jesi festival. It’s good to put a name to the event 🙂 Would love to catch up. I’ll send you a message! Thanks again for feedback.
