The 14th Boccaccesca Festival in Certaldo Alto

Food and Wine Lovers shouldn’t miss Boccaccesca this month in Certaldo. Come to discover some of the region's best products, watch demonstrations by professional chefs, participate in cooking classes, contests and workshops, enjoy tastings of every kind and see Certaldo, one of the best examples of a medieval Tuscan town.

For two consecutive weekendsin October, Certaldo Alto will be the capital of taste. This year’s event has been organized to capture its visitors and give them a total sensory experience. The streets will be bustling with artisans, artists and musicians and more... There will be special activities for children, bake shows and classes with master bakers in Piazza SS Annunziata, as well as a market where you can purchase a wide range of local products. On Saturday Oct. 13 there will be a special event for the younger crowd that focuses on cocktails, with some of Italy’s best barmen leading the show. Restaurants will also offer special menus for the occasion. There is really something for everyone – and even the cable car ride up to the hilltop hamlet is a fun and unique experience!

Dates: October 6-7 and 13-14  from 11 am to 8 pm.
