It amazes me that in December, Vittorio’s grapes are still on the vine.
I had to take a couple shots and share with you guys..
As you can see nothing ever ceases to amaze me here in Italy.
There are so many great places to see while in Veneto Region. Options are endless. There is definitely something for everyone..
Autumn or Autunno is one of my favorite seasons in Treviso.
Uva fragola from Vittorio’s garden in October.
Uva Fragola which translates to Strawberry grape got its name from the sweet pulp that it produces.
Happy Sunday everyone!!
It’s been raining on and off in Treviso for the last week.. I honestly can’t remember the last time that I have seen the sun. But this is how Autumn is in Northern Italy.. Continue reading
Well, It’s been one week since I decided to join the gym and so I decided that each week I would let you all know how I am doing on the road to a healthier new me..

I can’t get over how much of a painting this picture resembles.
One of my very best friends husband is a runner. He travels all over Northern Italy on Sunday’s and attends running competitions.
Yesterday, Nico went running in Vittorio Veneto. I couldn’t believe the photo he took so I had to share it with all of you!
Another reason why I ADORE Autunno in Italia.
If you have any photos of Fall in Italy, be sure to tag #inspiredinitaly. I’d love to see them. Once a week, I’ll pick a winner and share.
Autumn has arrived in Northern Italy. The days are shorter, nights are longer, temps have dropped significantly.. Chilly mornings to freezing evenings and as always the produce changes in the farmers market as well as the supermarket.
Out with the summer produce and in with the Autumn crops such as Pumpkins, pomegranate, wild mushrooms, and of course chestnuts.
Tis the season for roasted chestnuts.
Around every piazza throughout Italy you’ll find chestnuts roasting on an open fire.
It’s quite the Italian tradition.
You can also roast or bake them in the comfort and warmth in your own home.
Just remember to make an incision in them all before roasting or else they’ll explode.
And after give or take 15-20 minutes ( depending on how high the heat is) they’ll be finished. Put them in a towel to keep them warm until ready to eat.
It’s best to enjoy roasted chestnuts with a glass of red wine or beer.
Last Sunday night our friend Fabio was prepping and roasting chestnuts for a large group of friends.
Have you ever had roasted chestnuts before?
