New member
Hello, my husband and i want to visit Florence and south Tuscany in April 15, 2019 for about 5 days.
Are the vineyards in Chianti and surrounding areas open to public in April.
Will region be green and flowers be blooming at this time of year.
thank you

Tuscany is already in (almost) full bloom. Fruit trees are flowering and farmers are tilling the fields so wildflowers will start popping up everywhere in just a matter of weeks.

April can be a bit early for some flowers, but as you travel to the countryside I believe you will be pleasantly surprised at the bunches of color in the countryside.

May and June are normally the top for colorful wildflower displays, including red poppies, the lilac of the wisteria and a few other blossoms. July is widely known for the yellow sunflowers and the end of August beginning of September leaves for the Black Eyed Susan, springing up along the edges of the ploughed fields ... and strangely enough, railroad tracks.

Buon Viaggio,

Donna Denise
