Events: The flower festival
Every year San Remo is celebrating the famous Corso Fiorito (festival of flowers) in which every city of the Italian Riviera presents an original composition of flowers displayed on a Carnival/Mardi-Gras style moving car. Each vehicle is embellished with a mosaic of nearly 50,000 flowers and so more than 60,000 visitors come to Sanremo every year to see the parade moving through Sanremo.
Since 2010 the event is held on a Sunday in March. By checking the official website you can plan your vacation by bike using the cycle path along the coast reaching San Remo from every village close by. The time before spring is usually a very good period to visit the region as often the Riviera di Ponente offers warm and sunny days, unique throughout northern Italy.
