The best season to visit Umbria

Is really Summer the season to visit Umbria?

The Autumn season is coming as well as bright colors and delicious fruits.

Our green hills begin change their color in yellow, red and orange, a blaze of joyful colours, they heat our soul, as a fresh breeze caresses our face.

Walking in the wood, we can pick up

to the greengrocer we find 

  • greedy figs,
  • grapes 
  • red pomegranates.

We can make a lot of delicious things with all this fruits such us figs jam, it goes well with pecorino cheese, or a pomegranate juice, rich in vitamin C, and then the chestnut,  the Queen of the autumn fruit.

You can taste the chestnuts roasted or use it to make cakes and spreadable cream.

Porcini mushrooms picked up in autumn are tastier, they are perfect to flavour a good homemade pasta dish or grilled with a beefsteak or fried  as appetizer served  with a glass of wine .

In October there are a lot of events dedicated to the wood products such us:

  • La bisaccia del tartufaio, autumn festival at Citerna the first week end of October
  • Autumn Festival at Monte Santa Maria Tiberina the second week end of October
  • Chestnut festival at Morra the third week end of October
  • Wood festival at Montone  the last week end of October
