Harvest season is one of the best times to visit Tuscany, and it starts around the middle of September and goes well into early October. This is a time for plenty of celebrations dedicated to the harvest and the wines, too. If you are planning to go, consider planning ahead of time and have wine tours included in your private tours of Tuscany. That way, you can be there on time and not miss out on any special occasion or festival. A private tour offers more exclusivity to your visit, too, so you can have a more enjoyable, stress-free, and memorable experience.
Tuscany is one of Italy’s vibrant regions where the Renaissance was born. A lot of famous Renaissance musicians and artists lived in Tuscany for the time being. But beyond the majestic works of art and music, Tuscany is also known for its culture and traditions, which can be influenced by the seasons. In autumn, private tours of Tuscany can include visits to wineries and vineyards in the countryside where you can witness and be part of the harvest festival.
Harvest occurs in autumn, which is also the best time to have a private tour of Tuscany. The nights are cooler, the days are warmer, and other tourists who visited in the summer have gone home. Moreover, almost every town has its special harvest festival that adds to the fun and festive atmosphere in the region. You will never be bored, but you can add more excitement to your trip by customizing your itinerary to include mushroom and truffle hunting and try the local dishes that feature those ingredients.
Be sure to work with a reputable and seasoned luxury tours operator that has a good track record of helping discerning travelers arrange their private tour of Tuscany in time for the grape harvest season. The exclusive tour already includes luxury accommodation, a personal guide, and private transportation.
