Trentino dons the green and white of Spring

Festivals and events amongst flowers and herbs to celebrate the spring spectacle that Nature puts on show 

In spring, our desire to get up and go seems to stem from the reawakening of mother nature herself. 

Every year, the spring festivals in Trentino are a way of celebrating the arrival of a warmer and brighter season which cloaks the landscape in a blanket of colours. In Trentino, the fresh green hue of the valleys is draped with the white of apple blossom, like an extraordinary wedding veil made up of 8 million candid flowers.

This unique and natural spectacle can be appreciated through the many lively initiatives organised throughout the region in springtime. If you decide to come to Trentino for a long weekend this spring, maybe taking advantage of a few days off for Easter or the bank holidays, you will be able to take part in this great, almost contagious, festive spirit which lures both visitors and locals alike.

Beauty is in the details, and the apparent simplicity of a budding flower encloses the extraordinary complexity of life and the yearly renaissance of nature. Here are the main events dedicated to flowers, herbs and springtime.
