We are used to seeing the Tuscan countryside at its best when the summer arrives. Green hills or a straw yellow when burnt by the sun, rows of cypresses and lush vegetation to shore up the heights. But not many people consider the beauty of autumn in these lands.

Pomarance, Toscana

The Tuscan countryside surrounding Pomarance, in the province of Pisa, is surrounded by a romantic autumn halo, by the soft light typical of the months before winter, by that melancholic charm. Visiting Pomarance at this time gives the impression of going back in time even more. The medieval profile of the village, with its low houses and towers that support it here and there, the narrow streets of the village and the scent of cooked that spreads through the streets ... all this has a purifying beneficial effect.

As the light goes down, walking through these streets becomes an almost mystical, surreal experience, in which it becomes easy to find the peace that only a village immersed in the Tuscan countryside is able to give.

Autumn in Pomarance on the table

Once you arrive in Pomarance, the first thing to do is to sit at the tables of some farm with restaurant and enjoy the flavor of seasonal products. Many of Pomarance's farmhouses with restaurants are family-run and offer dishes based on mushrooms and chestnuts harvested in the nearby woods, accompanied by excellent new wine!

The typical cuisine of the Val di Cecina includes earth preparations, country dishes that are particularly suitable for warming up when it is colder. You can try the excellent Tuscan soups that are prepared here. With the traditional products of the territory of Volterra, such as cabbage and beans grown at kilometer zero, onions and seasonal vegetables. Maybe starting or ending the meal with a chopping board of Tuscan pecorino cheese and cold cuts, all washed down with intoxicating red wine. Among the bottles to try, of course the good Montecastelli PGI.

Pomarance and its activities

To experience autumn in Pomarance and its surroundings there are many activities you can do. The landscapes surrounding the village are so beautiful that they have become real attractions. The Forest of Berignone is enchanting, both in summer, when the banks of the river Cecina are reached for a refreshing bath, as well as between the colors of autumn, when the oaks and broad-leaved trees are covered with the warm colors typical of this season. Getting lost among these landscapes has a regenerating power, especially in autumn, when the Masso delle Fanciulle and the banks of the river are not stormed by those seeking a bit 'of coolness, and you can enjoy these unique landscapes in the silence of nature.

The best place to admire all the warm colors of autumn is the Rocca Sillana, one of the most famous attractions of those who are visiting Pomarance. The fortification is in fact located 500 meters high, in a privileged position, once to defend against attacks, today to cast the gaze on the fascinating landscape of the Val di Cecina.
