April and May: grapevines become thicker and greener everyday, dead wood is replaced by leafy branches. Olive trees bloom with small white flowers; watching the olive fields at this time of the year is truly unforgettable. Flowers are blooming everywhere: in Florence, you can visit the Iris festival, where plant growers across the world compete for the red Iris. The prize symbolises the coat of arms of the city of Florence.
July and August: the flowers of the buganvillea are in full bloom and you can taste deliciously sweet wild blackberries.
The nearby city of Siena hosts the Palio on 2nd July and 16th August. This ancient horse race is a must see if you’re visiting us during that time.
October: this is the most colorful time of the year, the colour of the leaves changes gradually every day. This is the perfect month to gather wild mushrooms in the woods.
