Tuscany is the cradle of Italian culture as well as culinary traditions. The area, famous for wine production (especially the DOCG of Val di Cornia) features many wine cellars opened to public visits and tastings from early spring to September. The so-called Strada del Vino (Wine Route) that stretches from Campiglia Marittima and Suvereto to San Lorenzo and Monteverdi, is a must-do for any wine enthusiasts. The culinary tradition, with a variety of dishes to suit everyone’s tastes, will not disappoint you. Typical products of the areas are game, such as wild boar, and vegetables such as spinach and violet artichoke. Seafood, octopus and the famous Cacciucco (traditional seafood stew) are also part of the local traditions and available especially during summer months. On summer the best way to experience the vast culinary tradition of the area is attending the so-called “sagre”, local traditional festivals based around one or more culinary specialities.
