Lavender Valley of Rodiano
Oh yes! Italy does have its own lavender field: Lavender valley of Rodiano ( Lavanda Val Di Pozzo) 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 or those who is looking for off the beaten path activities close to Bologna.
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 us a while before reaching the Lavender 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 the people even had special dresses and shoes in order to take a great profile picture for their Facebook page. There were 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 the Lavender Valley of Rodiano during its flowering days which go from the first to the fifteenth of July.

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.

Lavender fields are really a thing of beauty. Always associated them with Provence. But I see that there is piece of this enchanting beauty in Bologna also. Loved the pics, they bring alive the colour and vibrancy stunningly.

Colorful fields can do so much for a country's landscape! I love the likes of rapeseed & lavender (& purple is one of my favorite colors!)
