November and December in Umbria: Chestnuts, Olive Oils and Truffles
November is bellissimo in Umbria, ie, fewer tourists and much to do: olive oil mills are open all over the region offering the newly milled oil on bruschetta to visitors, eg in Castel Ritaldi, Spoleto on Nov 5, 6 – in Gualdo Catteneo on the 20th (and in Spoleto too on the 20th, 27th) – and in Giano dell Umbria week-end of the 27th.
Nov 11th is the feast of St. Martin and Umbrians celebrate by roasting chestnuts and tasting the new wines.
The truffle fair in Valtopina – during the last two week-ends in November – offers truffle dishes and other Umbrian delicacies to visitors.
