Crackly leaves underfoot. Whiffs of wood smoke wafting on the air. Pumpkins and apples. Chestnut 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. Maybe you’ll get lucky and catch some grape harvesting or olive picking. Two special events of an Italian autumn! Learn more about olive harvest with my post about Italy’s Olive Harvest!
But what are some other things you could look for in an Italian autumn?
Well, we have plenty of food festivals all over the nation. (Italians will always jump at the chance to celebrate food!) But a lot of other homey, everyday things will make your stay special too. So keep a sharp eye out for these other Autumnal Delights too!
