Romantic Cycling: Fête des Violettes – Tourrettes-sur-Loup

2023-03-10, 14:05



Today, I invite you to join me on a report of a spontaneous Sunday bike trip to Tourrettes-sur-Loup, where on March 5th the annual Violet Festival – Fete des Violettes was held.

I have already shown the town located near Vence during a film about the local railway, but it’s worth knowing that its main symbol is the violet, from which local crops are known throughout the region. To highlight this fact, once a year, at the beginning of March, an event is held here in honor of these purple flowers. Lots of people, loud music, local food, and a colorful parade at the end of the weekend – we couldn’t miss the opportunity to see it with our own eyes! The Crazy Bike Crew consisting of Aleksandra, Ivan, Raphael, and myself invite you to join us on a report of this colorful Sunday.

Thanks for your attention, see you in the next episodes.
