Tuscany in January

Tuscany in January

31 Jan 2012

January is usually one of the coldest months of the year, when sunny days alternate with snowfalls. It sees the end of the Christmas Holidays and the beginning of Carnival with its sweets and parades. It is a good month if you want to travel on a shoe-string.

Tuscany in October

01 Oct 2011

October is the month when the fall starts to set in. The weather is usually still very pleasant, but some rain should be expected. However, normally, October is a great month to visit Tuscany. Don’t expect the spectacular north American foliage though! Unfortunately, we don’t get the spectacular shades of red… but we get porcini mushrooms and chestnuts!
