This eagerly-awaited season is one of our favourites: the return of birdsong, colourful flowers, budding trees… a whole world comes back to life! A few drops of rain may intersperse with the sun’s rays but, in Rodez, as elsewhere, we are delighted that winter is over.
Your spring holiday in Rodez will be experienced in the great outdoors! Here are a few ideas:
- Jump into your trainers and enjoy a breath of fresh air
- Go on a Nature workshop
- Nibble on a snack
- Brainstorm as you ride an electric scooter
- Go on a photo tour
- Pick wildflowers
- Enjoy the first ice-cream of the season
- Take a selfie under a blossoming cherry tree
- Treat yourself to seasonal fruits bought on the market
1. Jump into your trainers.
There’s nothing like a walk or a bike ride to enjoy the first rays of spring sunshine. Wherever you are in Rodez Agglomération, there’s always a place to roam. Whether alone, with family or friends, get out and about!
2. Go on a Nature workshop.
With the arrival of spring, our nature experts regularly run “green” workshops: a botanic trail, nature bathing, discovery of plants. Consult our timetable online!
3. Nibble on a snack.from a « fenestra »
Take out food from the restaurant of your choice and eat it on a square, overlooking the spectacular neighbouring countryside. A bench will be your ideal place in the sun!
4. Brainstorm.as you ride an e-scooter
Contact Nicolas at Vent de Liberté, download the app on your phone and go to the Domaine de Combelles to solve a mystery as you ride around on an e-scooter! Investigate the case in augmented reality!
5. Go on a photographic tour.
Develop your photographic talent in the streets of Rodez with Jocelyn our photographer (for technical help) and our favourite guide (for information on the city’s heritage). Get to your smartphones!
6. Pick wildflowers.
As you hike around the country or as you stroll along the many pathways, go in search of yellow gold: daffodils! Just look around!
7. Enjoy the first ice-cream of the season.
There’s nothing quite like “home-made” ice-cream to feel like summer is on its way! On the Boulevard d’Estourmel, a multitude of flavours is waiting for you at Glacier de l’Aubrac, an artisan ice-cream maker. Treat yourself!
8. Take a selfie.under a blossoming cherry tree
Celebrating the end of winter and the beginning of spring, cherry blossom symbolises renewal and future happiness. 3, 2, 1, say “cheeeese”!!
9. Treat yourself to seasonal fruits.bought on the market
The first strawberries make their appearance on the market stalls alongside kiwis, oranges and other citrus fruit.
And once back home, why not bake a rhubarb tart?
