Ferragosto in Tuscany: to each his own.

Tuscany through my eyes: Week 37

Now that my project about Tuscany over the seasons is over, I have decided to start a new project: Tuscany through my eyes. Well, more or less… I am planning on publishing one or more photos of Tuscany every week, and not just some beautiful photos, but images that “match” the way I see my beautiful region at that time of the year. I will publish photos that I have taken and photos that I have not taken but I wish I had! 52 posts to show you Tuscany the way I see it and feel it. Here are the other posts in the series.

Week 37 – Ferragosto in Tuscany

On August 15, Italy celebrates Ferragosto, one of the most popular holidays in the country. It is “the summer holiday” par excellence. Most people choose to spend the day on the beach.

Other people decide to spend Ferragosto visiting a city or one of the many hilltop villages dotting Tuscany.

If you plan on spending Ferragosto in Tuscany, please take a look at our vacation rentals, Casina di Rosa in a small village south of Siena and Behind the Tower in the heart of Pisa.
