italyAutumn is one of the best times to visit Italy. The climate is still very mild and pleasant in most parts of the country, there are a huge range of seasonal festivals and cultural events that travellers can participate in, and all without the press of thousands of other tourists as the crowds are much smaller. Foodies will be delighted by all the sagre (festivals celebrating all things food and wine) that pop up across the country. Coinciding with wine and olive harvest season, the festivals celebrate Italy’s authentic and organic produce. There’s a festival available for every palate, whether it’s signature Italian truffles, wine, chestnuts, chocolate, porcini mushrooms or polenta.

Experience the gastronomic delights and cultural festivities that Italy has to offer in autumn on Insight Vacations’ Country Roads of Italy guided holiday. Clients can enjoy authentic regional flavours including a visit to Orvieto restaurant, where guests can explore the art of Italian cooking with Chef Lorenzo and master the skill of making fresh pasta by hand – followed by dinner and a glass of Orvieto Classico wine.
