Cervia, garden city!

Ready for a great blooming May on the Romagna Riviera?

Ready for a great blooming May on the Romagna Riviera? From May to September, the town of Cervia becomes a garden-city hosting the biggest Flower Fair in Europe. May will be a month full of events and news, not only in Cervia but also in the near Milano Marittima, Pinarella and Tagliata.

Let’s start the weekend of May 5th-7th with the event Barche Fiorite (i.e. flowered sailing boats): some experts in setting flowers from Ventimiglia will decorate three historical sailing boat moored in the Canal of Cervia with thousands of flowers and petals. A stunning artwork of colour shades and scents. While the next weekend of May 13th-14th, an exhibit called Primavera in Bonsai (i.e. spring and bonsai) devoted to this fascinating japanese art form.

Don’t miss the Green Market, where finding flowers and plants, but also gardening stuff to buy. Then, all the shops in Cervia and Milano Marittima participate to a challenge with the aim to arrange the best flower showcase in town. For the whole time, local restaurants and cafés will serve special dishes and cocktails inspired by the floral theme.

Save the date, May 26th: the very opening of Cervia Città Giardino Exhibit (i.e. Cervia garden-city), a fair hosting more than 60 exhibitors interested in flowers and plants from Europe and Canada. A worldwide famous and multi award winning event, which is probably the most important in the whole Europe for gardening. This year’s theme: Europe blossoms in Cervia.

Spring it on!
