Autumn in Tuscany

Admire not only the words, 
consider the heat of the sun, 
which becomes wine when joined to the juice of the grape.
(Dante Alighieri, la Divina Commedia)

Autumn is the harvest and hunting season in Tuscany. First there is the grape harvest, then the olives have to be picked, chestnuts collected, mushrooms and truffles searched and then it is time for hunting among others wild boars. In this period there are many local festivals or sagre which are mostly dedicated to these typical products.

In Livorno beaches to reopen: summer is back!

The seaside city of Livorno in central Tuscany, about 25 km south of Pisa, is located at the so called Costa degli Etruschi, a fantastic place that still has the original charm of Tuscany, a place where you still feel the harmony between man and nature.
