Where to lay your tired bones

Valle Orco is a magical place, to keep it like that we ask you to avoid wild camping. Inside the festival area, few minutes away from Le Fonti Minerali, you'll find a big space dedicated to tents, vans, motorhomes and cars with amenities (bathrooms and sinks). You can stay there as long as you want, you'll just need to pay 5€ once for the duration of the event. We'll need it to keep the ares clean and tidy. The festival camping area is definitely the best place to meet new friends, but if you prefer a quiter and comfier stay you'll find all the other possibilities in the dedicated page.
