Autumn is here and the Tuscan countryside is changing its colors: from the vibrant green of summer into warm yellows and reds typical of this season.
In Mugello, autumn is a very special season full of events and festivals we suggest you take note of. October is the month of chestnuts and other products from the brushwood. These typical products are celebrated in several festivals and fairs all around Mugello. In the next few weeks, there will also be interesting guided tours and excursions, such as the visit to the Archaeological area of Frascole in Dicomano.
These are the main events for the upcoming month. For more details we suggest you visit the official website of the Official Tourist site of Mugello:
