October in Tuscany

Fall in Tuscany: sagre, festivals and local products

October events in Tuscany


Tuscany is a truth festival destination due to the fact that there are many events all year round throughout the region. Many Tuscany events are concentrated during the summer, but if you come to Tuscany in October, doubtfully you will always find something interesting to experience… and to taste! The fall events are mainly dedicated to local specialties that come onto this season as truffles, wine, olive oil and chestnuts.

A special mention must be dedicated to Chianti, the wine destination par excellence. From the mid-September to October all local farms are engaged in grape and olive harvests and this is the perfect excuse to enjoy Tuscany. If you are a wine lover, you will really appreciate not only the many wine tastings and wine festivals, but you should take part in a wine or olive harvest. This is an interesting way to learn a lot about the local wine & food traditions but also about the local culture.
