A small piece of Provence in Bologna

40060 Rodiano BO, Italia

Lavander Valley of Rodiano ( Lavanda Val Di Pozzo)

Lavander Bologna

Lavender valley of Rodiano is a valley located just a few km from the city of Bologna and it is really cool for those of us with an interesting photographic interest. 
Azienda Agricola Val del Pozzo started cultivating lavender years ago and they now produce oils and soaps for their visitors. We went there on Sunday evening. Sadly, there were no boards or signs with indications so we had to stop several times in order to get correct directions from the few people around. For this reason, it took a while before reaching the Valley of Rodiano but was not difficult at all.

At a certain point we had to leave our vehicle, and from there walked about 1 km along an unpaved road until we reached the lavander valley.
There were plenty of people there!

Some of people even had special dresses and shoes in order to take a great profile picture for their Facebook or Instagram page. So many photographers taking pictures here and there. 
It had been a pleasant way to spend a different kind of evening. If you live close to Bologna, you should visit this place during its flowering days which go from the first to the fifteenth of July.

  1. The picture has so much of lavendar inside it. The blue colour automatically transports you to that flower. Is it the dog in the picture? It is looking at you so keenly, as if it wants to say something.
