Walk with interview May 8, 2021
The irises have bloomed! We have the opportunity to enjoy this show for only a few days.
The half-day walk will be very easy and very photographic, in the Greve area, along the river and on the first hills and will give us the opportunity to get to know the world of Iris Pallida (the iris). Did you know, for example, that the essence of this Chianti flower is in the most famous perfumes in the world …?
What we will see: the river, the ancient mills, artists’ houses, the villas on the ridges and obviously the GIAGGIOLO. LEONARDO, who cultivates these Chianti flowers, will welcome us in his cultivation, carrying on this ancient tradition. He will explain the uses and all the curiosities related to iris pallida!
