Description

Like in the rest of world, also Umbria celebrates the entry of the new season with celebrations of all kinds, from the most traditional to the most creative.

One of the most characteristic festivals that evoke spring is definitely the Tulip Festival, April 9 to 13 that will color the historic center of Castiglione del Lago with a rich program of initiatives, including the traditional parades of allegorical floats decorated with tulips and local tavernas with menus based on local produce.

This particular celebration originates from the custom of some Dutch families who moved in the Umbrian town in the 90s to grow tulip. On arrival of the first warm months, they used to decorate the houses, balconies and wagons with the first tulip bulbs just sprung up. Although over time the cultivation of the tulip has been abandoned, still this particular holiday is celebrated as a good omen for the coming of the new season.
