Ready for Autunno?


Crackly leaves underfoot. Whiffs of wood smoke wafting on the air. Pumpkins and apples. Chestnuts roasting. There’s a cozy feeling to Autumn, isn’t there? And these are just a few of the things you can expect to find in an Italian autumn. And maybe you’ll even be lucky enough to catch some grape harvesting or olive picking. Two special events of an Italian autumn! Learn more about olive harvest with my post Autumn in Italy
