Italy has the largest area of chestnut groves in Europe, with around 300 varieties. The medieval village of Orciatico has been the scene for over 40 years of an event traditionally held on the third Sunday of October. The highlight are the food stands, open for lunch and dinner, where you can enjoy “cartocci of burnt chestnuts”, pancakes, millefeu and sweet wine.
