About This Experience

Meet a local entrepreneur starting his own street food business to revitalize the traditions from his village tucked into the mountains of Tuscany. In this little-known area (even for Italians), chestnuts have been the main source of income and sustenance for generations. In this full-day experience, you'll be immersed in nature, walking to an ancient, crumbling mill where chestnuts were once ground into flour, learning traditional recipes, and enjoying a homemade lunch outdoors next to a flowing stream! It's the ultimate cultural immersion for the nature lover!
