    Visit Nearby Itri's Flower Festival on 10th June

    L' Infiorata, Flower Festival, Itri �� L.Shapcott

    In June the feast of Corpus Domini attracts many visitors to Itri, to view the colourful, decorative carpet of flowers, over which the traditional Corpus Domini procession passes. The designs depict scenes from the bible and messages of peace and brotherhood, and are painstakingly composed of thousands of individual flower petals.

    It is well worth a visit.
