The sampling of local wine and cheese is an essential part of the carnival. It is also possible to buy local food with discounts during the days of the festival.

As the number of bars is quite large for such a city, each of the venues tries to attract more guests by offering various promotions and discounts.

The best time to visit bars is right after the opening as the selection of dishes is the biggest.
