Here comes the weekend, again. With or without kids, you still could plan something to do. Even better if it is not only fun and interesting, but also beautiful and (shudder) healthy!
...the exhibit and sale of citrus plants has reached its 4th edition, already.
A little bit of history (from where did citrus plants arrive in Europe, and when?), a little bit of natural beauty (the lovely plants themselves and artistic reproductions), a little bit of shopping (got a terrace or balcony? Buy one for home), and--for the kidlets--didactic play time (careful! Reservations are necessary for the kiddie activities, hours slightly different from opening times).
All in Italian, of course, but looking, smelling and tasting are universal, and the wit behind the name is fun, too. In case you don't read Italian, "agrumi" is the Italian word for citrus, while "Mi" is taken, of course, from "Milan."
Take your sweetheart...it's Valentine's Day weekend.
