Risultati immagini per cherry blossom eur

Rome has taken up the traditional Japanese Hanami Flowering Cherry Tree Festival. Romans and visitors can enjoy the spectacular blossoming of 2,500 Sakura cherry trees donated by the city of Tokyo to Rome and planted in the Park of the Laghetto, an artificial lake in the EUR district.

The Botanical Gardens of the University La Sapienza in Rome's Trastevere area also put on a fine show of cherry tree blossoms through April 2019, in collaboration with the Japanese Institute of Rome.

There are many other places in Italy where the Cherry Tree blooms can be admired, such as at Villanova sull'Arda (Piacenza), where the trees line the banks of the Ada river and produce the  fruit on offer at the local June Cherry Festival, as well as the Road of the Cherry Trees at Scandicci (Florence). The principal sight in Milan is the Hill of the Cherry Trees in via Sarca, an artificial mound created from the rubble of the former Pirelli factory, now converted into the HangarBicocca Museum, a contemporary art museum and exhibition space.
