© Corso Fleuri
Every Spring the 'Corso Fleuri' attracts around 12,000 visitors who gather to see the dozen of floats wonderfully decorated with fresh flowers and mimosas, all accompanied with live music. Festivities finish with a flower battle.
This festival was inspired by the 17th century aristocratic custom of parading around the main street inside decorated carriages, which arrived from the South of France. Having stopped after the French Revolution, it was restored at the beginning of the 20th century.
