Italy is a great place to visit over the Fall. A lot festivals, culture and food events take place all over the country. It is one of the place most visited by tourists. At the beginning of the fall the weather is great. In the morning and evening is a little chill along the coast but colder on the mountain especially on the northern of Italy, however, you will still see a beautiful sunny day. One of the great thing to delight is the food festivals over the fall. It is the perfect time to find and eat good truffles, chestnuts, mushrooms, grapes for wine, chocolate and torrone. visiting the regions you will have the opportunity to see markets, festivals and truffles fair in all regions of Italy.
One of the most important truffle festival
is Alba White’s truffles in Piedmont. Also, you will find other festivals in Tuscany, Umbria, and Emilia Romagna. One of my favorite festival is the eurochocolate festival in Perugia. It is the center city of Umbria the heart of Italy,well known for the Perugina Baci chocolates. it is one of the bigger chocolate producer of the world. Eurochocolate is an international chocolate fair celebrated every year for seven days over in the fall. you will find a big selection of all kind of chocolate. A lot artisans meet to create enormous chocolate sculptures that people will enjoy after been finished. Yes! you will get free chocolate and tastes.
