Tulipanomania in Bardolino: the lakefront is colored with 50,000 tulips!

An event of international appeal that sees 50,000 tulips bloom along the beautiful flowerbeds along the lakefront of Bardolino. Look out for all varieties!

Since 2016, spring in Bardolino has become an event of international appeal, thanks to the collaboration with the Sigurtà Garden Park which plants 50 thousand tulips along the beautiful flowerbeds of the lakeside.

There are many varieties of tulips and bulbous flowers that can be admired along the entire lakefront of Bardolino (from Mirabello beach on the Roma lakefront to Punta Cornicello and Lungolago Preite), but also in the hamlets of Cisano and Calmasino: from Holland Queen (yellow-red), the Toyota (red-white), the Menton (pink), the Apricot Parrot (Orange White) without forgetting the Belicia (white double pink), the Labrador (fuchsia red) or the Dordogne (orange). A diversity of colors ranging from black (Black Hero), fuchsia pink (Sunset tropical), dark purple (Negrita), Banja Luka with yellow flowers mottled with red. Then we have the Great Barrier Reef (blue), the Louvre Orange (orange), the Family Van Eijk Mix (red), the Dutch Romance (blue), the Dream Carpet (white) or the Keukenhof (red and blue).
Look for them all!

According to the art of onomancy, the meaning of my name is described as follows: "it lives in the woods, sylvan and wild". Sometimes fate knows the way before you, and forges you with the most akin experiences. I live in the heart of Lake Garda in Castelletto di Brenzone. Passionate about trekking, photography and writing, which I combine in small adventures. If you are looking for me, you will find me in the forest overlooking the lake... with my Roberto and Gea.
