What's going on in October in Tuscany

The sun shines high in the sky for this week end and I would like to underlines few open air events for people with children, too…
I have seen the website of the tourist railways and they organize a cho cho train along the amazing Val D’Orcia. Each Sunday of October, two in November and December; every Sunday with a different t theme. Trains leave form Siena at 8,30am, a nice walking in the wood and then lunch in a restaurant. This coming Sunday the theme is the porcino mushroom. The price (without lunch) is € 16, 00 for adults, children travel for free.
A great thank you to the association that once again want to bring back to our memory the revival of the smallest Tuscan rail line Colle Val d’Elsa-Poggibonsi (closed in 1987) with typical 1800 rails and the curve with the tightest manual gauge of Italy. In November the theme is truffle and the train leaves from Siena and goes to Grosseto. Instead for the Immaculate Conception break (December 8th), the theme is olive oil and the train leaves form Florence

If you want to go to North, instead of South, in the Mugello area there a series of festivals dedicated to chestnuts in Palazzuolo, Vicchio, Firenzuola and Marradi, the homeland of chestnut s; This coming Sunday a cho cho train leaves from Florence to Marradi.

In Pisa, there is instead an event dedicated to chocolate at Leopolda Station. Then in Montecarlo (Lucca) they have also their own Chocolate festival.
In Volterra: Dolcegusto and Wine. Stands in the narrow streets of this tufa hilltop town.
In Impruneta, there is the San Luke fair.
In Castelmuzio, Trequanda (Siena province) opens a new shop “Dal podere al palato” (From the farmhouse to the palate): to buy olive oil, pecorino cheese, wine, honey, meat and cut meats directly from producers. The opening of this new space is introduced in “The Olio nuovo di Podere”, fair from Friday, October 17th to Sunday, October 19th 2008, dedicated to Extra virgin olive oil.
In Florence, there is Florence wine and fashion.
From October 16th to 19th 2008: the Florentine artisans open their ateliers to the public during the European days of arts and jobs to enhance the old arts. Four days completely dedicated to cultural initiatives, meetings, workshops for families and for children in the Horne Museum
And very soon…the Halloween parties in Florence. Stay tuned.
