Lovers of Short Breaks Head to Tuscany in October
Villas in Tuscany seem to do much better business than properties elsewhere thanks to the vibrant festivals that take place in October.
October can be a tricky time for booking short breaks. In many parts of Europe the month signifies a winding-down before the build-up to Christmas, but companies such as To Tuscany, the British experts in villas in Tuscany, the month is a brilliant time to discover the many Tuscan wonders on offer.
The reason for tourist interest in the Tuscan October is that the month is the best time to enjoy a truly authentic side of the region, as many villages hold festivals during this time. These village festivals are usually dedicated to the seasonal produce, so October is a great time for lovers of fungus to have their fill.
Some of the festivals that autumn travellers might be particularly interested in are the Sagra del Fungo Porcino, which is a celebration of Porcini mushrooms in Casale di Pari, and the Sangra del Fungo Amiatino, dedicated to the mushrooms of Mount Amiata in Bagnolo di Santa Fiori.
