    Question Question on Val d'Orcia

    I'm attracted by the beautiful scenary of Val d'Orcia. I'm planning to come in early October this year.
    Understand Val d'Orcia changes colors each season. I'm just wondering does Val d'Orcia still look very green in early October?

    Default fall colors in October

    Ciao Leslie,

    Yes, the Val d'Orcia has very distinct colors every season but generally the very green season is April-June with spring and rain. A lot of the area is planted with grain so then it turns yellow and is harvested in August/September - and left in the fields in those large rolled stacks you've seen in photos of Tuscany.... in October, I remember seeing mostly yellow and browns, as the fields were being ploughed to let them breathe. Of course there is still green areas as well, particularly areas where sheep graze. It was still very beautiful so I wouldn't put off visiting in October because it isn't very green ;-).
    In the beginning stages of planning to come to Tuscany? Make sure to read Where to Stay in Tuscany WITH a car and Where to Stay in Tuscany WITHOUT a car for ideas on where to stay in Tuscany. Also read When to Visit Tuscany to decide when is the best times for your visit.
