Now in its 12th edition, La Mangialonga is a nature and food event that has characterized the city of Rocca di Papa for many years, combining history, nature, flavors and enjoyment.
Scheduled this year for Sunday, June 17, the traditional event attracts hundreds of participants every year from all the districts around Rome, in the enjoyment of good food and fine wines along a route that covers about 10 km, in discovery of the marvelous historical and natural heritage of Rocca di Papa, including the typical flavors of the local cuisine.
The participants will meet at 8 am in Piazza della Repubblica and during the walk will make four stops for tastings of the local products: the first, breakfast at the meeting point, and two more during the walk, that will be a huge surprise for all the participants, since the route has purposely been kept secret, ending with a luncheon feast, with acts and musical entertainment.
