Dutch Couple to Open Massive Tulip Field in Milan
Italians will now be able to experience a bit of the Netherlands when the first tulip field with over 250,000 flowers opens near Milan later this month.
The creators of “Tulipani Italiani,” Edwin Koeman and Nitsuhe Wolanios, are originally from the Netherlands and wanted to bring the Dutch flower tradition to Italy. The field, located just north of Milan in Cornaredo, will be the newest tourist destination. Visitors, for a small fee, can view the tulips and pick as many as they like to take home.
Called the “happiest place in Milan,” the one-hectare field will have more than 250,000 tulips from 185 different varieties. The couple hopes it will become a place for people to get away from the daily chaos, spend time with family and enjoy nature. The tulips are expected to bloom later this month and into April.
