Street Dinner in Ferrara
September 5, 2015 @ 18:00 - 22:00€60
Imagine a summer evening in a magical city:. Imagine an outdoor dinner with friends or with a beloved person. If you like surprises and plan to visit Italy, you shouldn’t miss Street Dinner — a unique event taking place in Ferrara the city designated as Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO.
Participants in Ferrara’s Street Dinner begin by purchasing for EUR 60 per person a package for the event and providing their mobile phone number. The clients don’t know where the dinner will take place and they have to find the location. On the designated evening an SMS arrives revealing first the place where aperitifs were to be served. Also a costumized show with music and dances is arranged there. Next, an hour before dinner, a second text message tells participants where to pick up their table, chairs and meals. Yes, they have to carry the furniture for some distance. Finally, after that a third text message reveales the location of the dinner. What can it be? Perhaps the courtyard of the Estense Castle, or Corso Ercole I d’Este with a view of the Palazzo dei Diamanti, or the City Walls or maybe the Three Bridges of Comacchio or somewhere else. The details are not revealed until the last minute. However, the tourists may be sure that clues will guide them to the right places and the evening will be nice.
Part a treasure hunt, part a quest, part a VIP dinner and part a romantic picnic, Street Dinner is an interesting way to promote the city and its local highlights while giving consumers an experience they’ll remember. With the overnight option including stay in a 3- or 4-star hotel is also offered beginning at EUR 115 per person, that can even be extended to consumers from afar.
Operated by travel agency Link Tours with sponsorship from a variety of other local organizations, the Street Dinner is planned to occur again at some as-yet-unspecified date in 2011.
