Every October thousands of motorcycles decsend on the sleepy medieval village of Sant’Angelo in Vado in Le Marche, Italy for the international Motorcycle & White Truffle Festival! Revving engines, fragrant truffles, endless local craft beer and wine… what more could you want?! This year marks the 38th anniversary of what seems like an unlikely pair: truffles and motorcycles yet in Italy they marry perfectly! The cobblestone streets fill with hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of motorcycles from around the world, all converging on this tiny town to celebrate two things: bikes and white truffles!

XXXVII Motoraduno Nazionale – XX Internazionale del Tartufo Bianco Pregiato organizzato dal Moto Club “Tonino Benelli” di Sant’Angelo in Vado

The truffle festival lasts all month in Sant’Angelo, but the best night to go is the night of the ‘Motoraduno’ when Italians dress in their leathers, firing up their engines and indulge in the finer things in life – wine served to you in a ceramic mug on a string and fragrant rare white truffles and in recent years fantastic local craft beer. The old cantina’s in town open their doors to serve cheap wine, homemade goods and pump house music.
So, I pulled on my skinny black jeans and cowboy boots (trying my best to blend) and we headed into town. The weather couldn’t have been better, a warm late October evening meant the streets were packed with revellers with the smell of truffles and chestnuts thick in the air.
