Castiglione del Lago has just started celebrating this year’s 47th edition of the Festa del Tulipano and tonight will see the official opening parade. Dating back to 1956, the Tulip Festival celebrates the arrival of spring and consists of decorating the city centre with tulip petals. Sunday is the pinnacle of the festival with the different sections of town competing with decorated floats and then with teams of runners racing through town. Why not book a last minute minibreak in Casa Leone and experience this amazing festival on your doorstep! Check out the programme.
