No matter what you call it – Fall, autumn, or the Italian autunno – it’s an excellent time to visit Italy.

gering warm-to-hot days lack the extreme heat and humid nights of the summer and balmy evenings still cry out for an evening stroll, with a gelato in hand! More temperate conditions make this a fantastic month for outdoor pursuits like hiking or exploring Roman ruins. Fall in Italy is a beautiful time of year, as colors change and soften and the land gives up its harvest. This is also the time when Italians celebrate the joys of eating, with festivals and sagres (fairs) dedicated to the local produce and specialties, from chestnuts and mushrooms to prosciutto, olives, truffles and of course, wine!
