We went out of our way on our journey back ffrom Italy to visit Floriade. We had heard glowing reports of the last one and expected to be blown away by the famous floral displays.
Instead we found that flowers were few and far between and that the exhibition cosisted of a number of large and small buildings featuring ecology, international exhibits, educational and green issues. There was also a long and uninteresting forest walk, some water features and a number of musicians, dancers and actors to entertain the crowd.
Getting in and out was a nightmare involving parking, walkingfor 10 minutes, a 10 minute bus journey and then more walking all in 30 degree heat. It was not worth the trouble!
