In the spring it also takes the famous “Festival dell’Infiorata” in Scarperia: streets are covered with colorful designs made with flower petals.

Summer is the time to relax: nothing better than a break at Lago di Bilancino, equipped with all facilities for leisure, such as chairs, loungers and parasols. If you love sports, you can enjoy kite-surfing, canoeing, windsurfing, fishing and much more but for lovers of Grand prix, the appointment is July 15, 2012 with the Grand Prix at the Mugello circuit.

In early September do not miss the Medieval Diotto Festival in Scarperia.
