Experience autumn in Tuscany

In the collective imagination, autumn is a melancholy season, a metaphor for abandonment. It is the rainy season, at the end of summer and the beginning of winter.

With the arrival of autumn, nature changes, the days get shorter and the temperatures drop.

But autumn is not only the prelude to winter, it is a fascinating season full of wonderful colors and smells, which creates a more introspective mood in the human being, in harmony with what surrounds us.

For example, walking in the woods during the autumn season is a wonderful experience capable of sweetening the soul.

The silence of the forest, the sound of one’s footsteps, the slow progress within a world of enveloping colors is something magical.

Autumn in Tuscany can offer unique experiences as it is an area rich in dense forests of fir and beech trees that change their appearance this season.

Walking inside a beech forest in autumn means being immersed in a sea of bright red leaves, it will feel like walking in a bright red carpet.

This is the phenomenon of foliage in Tuscany, which in autumn offers unforgettable moments.

What is the Foliage and why is it so magical

In autumn, the life cycle of trees transforms many foliage, from intense yellows, fiery reds, to purple or brown.

It is exciting to walk inside these woods moving on a soft carpet of leaves.

This scenario takes the name of foliage, or that phenomenon in which, during the autumn, the trees lose their leaves and their color changes.

One of the most spectacular environments where to “practice” the foliage is certainly the beech forest. In autumn, the leaves of the beech trees lose their bright green color, to cover the whole range of colors ranging from yellow, red, to brown, transforming the forest.

Living the Foliage experience is truly magical because the color palette that the autumn forest offers us is incredibly colorful.
