Grasse once again celebrates the arrival of its treasured rose! The queen of flowers is once again the guest of honour in the perfume city, with 6,000 roses in bouquets and 15,000 rose bushes for sale during the 49th "ExpoRose". 25,000 more roses adorn fountains and house facades in the old town.
Under the heading "Couleurs des îles, Parfums Exotiques", Polynesia and the Caribbean with their sweet fragrances are this year's themes. Floral compositions will adorn the rooms of Villa Fragonard, and you can stroll through its gardens in the footsteps of the little prince's rose.
Music, dance, paintings, perfumed words and much more are part of the supporting programme of the 2019 Rose Exhibition.
Visitors should not miss the Provençal and flower markets or the International Perfumery Museum. Music will be played in the flower-covered squares in the old town, but Caribbean dance groups and theatres of the local Théâtre Compagnie 100°C also await guests.
Cours Honoré Cresp and old town of Grasse - from 10 to 12 May, 10 am to 8 pm daily.
Admission: €5. The ticket price includes admission to the Rose Exhibition at Villa Fragonard, the Perfumery Museum, the Musée d'Art et d'Histoire de Provence. Admission to the dance and music performances in the city is free.
