There is a unique magic that descends upon Tuscany in the fall.  After spending a long summer bathing in the hot Mediterranean sun, the countryside shifts modalities to produce a bounty of food, wine and color that complements the cultural and architectural heritage of the region. 


Few places in Europe can capture the essence of autumn as completely and uniquely as Tuscany.  Villages come to life with the anticipation of the fall bounty.  The countryside shifts color to the stunning yellows and browns.  The vineyards are heaving with grapes ready to be picked and pressed into the nectar of wine that might eventually be called Chianti Classico or Brunello


This yearly ritual is happily shared by the Tuscans as this is their cultural legacy and a source of well-deserved pride.  Tuscan village squares are transformed to host the festivals of the hall and restaurants are bustling with activity and lively conversations late into the night.  There is no better time to experience the hospitality and lifestyle of the Tuscans than in the fall


There are many ways to partake in the fall harvest and our independent and small group tours offer a number of options that will provide you with ample opportunity to savor the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of this incredible region.  You can choose to go hunting for the venerable black and white truffle, pick grapes from the vines of the regal Sangiovese grape, and learn to cook traditional Tuscan recipes or simply explore the awe inspiring views and villages of the Tuscan countryside.  If you are interested in adding or amending any of our itineraries, please let us know and we would be thrilled to provide you with a more personalized holiday options.
