On October 27 you shouldn't miss the steam train that will take you to the Thrush fair in Montalcino. You'll cross the Val d’Orcia hills until the Torrenieri Station. Here, there will be a bus transfer to the town of the renowned Brunello. The Medieval Thrush festival has been celebrated the last Sunday of October every year since 1958: 4 districts meet together to play an archery tournament. The Sagra del Tordo is also a great opportunity to taste local traditional dishes, including pappardelle with wild boar sauce, homemade pici, bean soup, grilled meat and sausages accompanied by the best local wines.
On both November 10 and November 18 the Nature train will be leading you to San Giovanni d’Asso to attend the renowned Mostra Mercato del Tartufo Bianco, or White truffle fair.
Departing from Siena (November 11) or from Grosseto (November 19) both trains will stop in Monte Antico and head to the truffle fair, where you will find food stalls selling white truffles and many local truffle-flavoured specialities.
The last journey is on December 8, more news to come!
