In March, Italy’s most northerly citrus fruits provide the pretext for a major event that celebrates the landscape, colours and aromas of Lake Maggiore. It is the ideal opportunity for wonderful walks in the country and guided tours to discover the local area’s food and drink, histories and traditions.
It is definitely worth visiting the Parco degli Agrumi in Cannero during the “Gli Agrumi di Cannero Riviera” citrus fruit festival.
When spring arrives, Cannero Riviera's gardens open their gates to the public so that everyone can enjoy the brightness, colors and fragrance of the northernmost citrus fruits in Italy.
Many events are being held, spread over nine days, from 10 to 19 March 2018.
Educational and artistic exhibitions, installations created with the collaboration of famous landscape designers, cooking courses, tastings, animations, workshops, music, tea rooms, themed menus in restaurants, guided tours, a plant market, high-quality agro-food products and handicrafts.
Since 2016, Cannero Riviera’s citrus-producing heritage has been protected by a “Production regulation” that guarantees and protects the quality of plants and fruits grown in the local area.
