The festival featured many restaurants and exotic vendors in addition to entertainment such as foosball tables and bicyclists weaving their way in and out of the light trickle of traffic streaming along the river walk.

On arrival close to sunset, you will see a few vendors open paired with the odd tourist strolling about. However it is not until the sun has set that the festival becomes packed with people eager to taste and explore the many fine cuisines temporarily set along the Tiber.

Although the festival was quite a sight to see, there was no indication of its presence until you were crossing the bridge over the Tiber where the many white tented attractions became visible. Whether it is to buy a rare gift for a friend or to take a late night stroll, Lungo il Tevere was a truly memorable experience that was not to be missed.
