Revel in Autumn Romance at These 5 Destinations
The fall season is the peak time of year for food and wine in Italy. This is when the vineyard harvests begin and truffles, mushrooms and chestnuts are harvested. The farmers slow down the traffic as they cart their heavy loads of grapes to the wineries.
The gentle rolling countryside of Piedmont comes alive with color in the fall as the light changes and the evenings cool. There are so many beautiful trails to explore in the surrounding peaks.
Plus, fall is one of the best times of the year for festivals in Piedmont. The Alba White Truffle Market (the largest truffle festival) is held from October 5 to November 24 and the Turin Chocolate Festival is happening from November 8 to 17.
