One of my personal strategies for avoiding the lines, crowds, and traffic at Vinitaly is to use the Re Teodorico (pronounced REH TEH-oh-doh-REE-koh) entrance on the south side of the fair grounds, as opposed to the main entrance.
It’s always less crowded and you never have to wait to get in (see the map below).
The other cool thing about it is that once you’re inside, the Puglia pavilion is practically right in front of you (it’s just to the right of the entrance). And so you’re very close to the Cantele stand (a lot closer than the main entrance).
And another cool thing about the Re Teordorico entrance is that there are concessions and bathrooms right there between pavilion 12 and 11 (11 is Puglia). And because they’re on the opposite side of the main entrance, they tend to be more manageable.
That’s my tip for getting to the Cantele stand without much hassle.
But where to park, you ask? I’ll never give my parking strategy away!
Hope to see you at the fair. I’ll be at Cantele on Sunday at 11:30 and will be visiting a few times throughout the event if you’d like to taste there with me.
