Besides its monuments, if you are going to visit Italy in this period of the year you should also consider Italy’s beautiful and abundant flowers.
The Italians use flowers to convey many of their customs, values, and beliefs. The traditional symbolic flowers of Italy are the rose, the white poppy or lily, violets, and the lilac. They symbolize love, pleasure, purity, faithfulness, and beauty.
There are some very special locations in Italy where you won’t believe what your eyes are telling you when you first alight on the scene, especially in Umbria. And although you will without a doubt have seen images of Tuscany in flower and already have some preconception of what you will see here, this particular part of Tuscany called “la Maremma.
Spring in Maremma is wonderfully lush and green. Amongst the vivid and dramatic fields painted with red poppies and white Marguerit. In Maremma, you will have the chance to admire sunflower fields near the coast – and behind a gorgeous long, long stretch of golden sands – in the hamlet of Pian d”Alma near Castiglione della Pescaia at the end of June
Villa Maremma 2 is a luxury villa near Tuscany Coast, in the oasis of natural beauty in the region of Tuscany, not far from the most beautiful cities in Tuscany and also not too far from the sea:
In Umbria, between late May and early July of each year through the spectacle of nature called “The Fiorita” or “The Fioritura” (The Flowering) of Castelluccio di Norcia.
When the flowers bloom the plateau bursting with colors, with shades ranging from yellow ocher to red, from violet to white. For example, you can enjoy lentils (cultivated and proper to Castelluccio), gentianella, poppies, narcissuses, violets, asphodels, Eugeniae violet, clovers, oxalis and many more. And if you decide to take a walk in this “natural mosaic”, maybe you will be lucky and you will watch some gazelles and roe deers…
