A tulip garden in Sardinia
In spring, the tulips bloom and this is the time to enjoy a walk through the gardens of Turri in Sardinia. Tulipani in Sardegna (Tulips in Sardinia) is the name of this event for those who love flowers and photography. Parco Beranu Froriu is home to 70 tulip varieties, in a display area and a field for harvesting.
The garden is also home to peonies, irises, daffodils, hyacinths, buttercups and more than 5000 roses. There is plenty to admire here, even outside the 3–4 weeks when the tulips flower.
You can stroll freely through the park taking as many photographs as you wish. The lighting and atmosphere change throughout the day, and so too does the magic. In addition to the flowers, you can also admire the centuries-old plants at Turri, a UNESCO heritage site – particularly its olive trees.
The park is located in the heart of Marmilla, between Cagliari and Oristano, and is part of the Grandi Giardini Italiani (Great Italian Gardens) circuit. Enjoy an afternoon in this little corner of paradise amidst rows of flowers, meandering paths and small bridges. Your admission ticket includes a vase with 3 tulips to take home as a souvenir.
