An Intimate Look at Italy’s Saffron Harvest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the Abruzzo region of Italy, harvesting the lucrative spice is a centuries-old tradition, infused with a deep-seated passion for the land and its history.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Saffron, which is taken from the stigmas of the saffron crocus, is a lucrative crop. Also called oro rosso, or red gold, it was first introduced into the region around the 13th century — an import from Spain. Prized as an exotic spice, it was sold in the wealthier regions and cities of Milan and Venice, and abroad in France, Germany and Austria. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Saffron is harvested in the hours just before sunrise, while the crocus petals remain closed; this makes the flowers easier to pick and helps protect their precious crimson-red stigmas. The delicate buds are handpicked and placed into baskets. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Later, on the same day, the stigmas — three tiny threads per flower — are separated from the moist petals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the evening, over an open wood fire, the bright threadlike stigmas are dried in wire baskets, a process that adds to the richness of both the color and the flavor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It takes roughly 4,000 flowers to make one ounce of saffron powder — which means there’s a staggering amount of labor packed into the tiny containers in which the spice is sold. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Content: The New York Times⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #saffron #zafferano #saffronharvest #zafferanoitaliano #italiantradition #italy #discoveritaly #visititaly #taste #food #foodexperience #travel #traveltoitaly

Castel del Monte, Apulia The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Castel del Monte was built in the latter half of the 12th century by Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II. At this time his realm stretched across much of southern Italy, and he was also responsible for the Castello Normanno-Svevo in Bari, the region’s biggest city, as well as a series of hunting lodges across his domain. 📸 @hagemo92 . . . . . . . #luxurytravel #traveltoitaly #visititaly #italiantour #travel #travels #travelling #traveling #italy #italia #italytravel #travelblogger #travelgram #wanderlust #beautifuldestinations #luxurylifestyle #italian #italianlifestyle #landscape #viandandoluxurytravel #trip

Portofino is the quintessential fishing village on the Italian Riviera: a row of houses painted in bright colors set like a crown around a sheltered and hidden bay, surrounded by lush vegetation. Portofino has a dual personality because, while it is a popular meeting place for VIPs from around the world, it is also an irresistible destination for lovers of nature, sea and outdoor activities.

One reason to visit Italy in the autumn months is the glorious array of homegrown foods available in the country. One culinary delight that is widely celebrated throughout the country is truffles, with several festivals dedicated to them around Italy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⚫ Black Truffles⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The most common and versatile of truffles, the Tartufo Nero can be found across most of central and northern Italy. The black truffle is recognizable not just for its color but also for its wrinkly skin. These truffles are the ones most commonly used in cooking. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⚪ White Truffles⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Tartufo Bianco is the rarer and more luxury version of the truffle. These truffles have smoother skin and can come in various sizes, some as big as potatoes. It can be shaved over dishes or infused to create products such as truffle oil or butter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TruffleSeason #Travel #Italy #truffle #blacktruffles #whitetruffles #tartufo #tartufobianco #tartufonero #food #foodphotography #foodie #italy #visititaly #traveltoitaly #italianfood #italianfoodlover #italytour #foodtasting

The Vertical Forest, Milan Officially opened in 2014, almost five years later these residential high-rises seem to be almost disappearing under all that green, and continue to be a testament to sustainable urban living. The towers were designed as part of a massive redevelopment of the new Porta Nuova district in Milan. Soaring up 116m and 85m high, they are famed for featuring 700 trees and over 20,000 different shrubs and plants. The plant life, which is said to equal 3 hectares of forests (20,000 sq m) Content: Lonely Planet Ph: @michaelpezzaioli . . . . . . . #luxurytravel #traveltoitaly #visititaly #italiantour #travel #travels #travelling #traveling #italy #italia #italytravel #travelblogger #travelgram #wanderlust #beautifuldestinations #luxurylifestyle #italian #italianlifestyle #landscape #viandandoluxurytravel #trip #boscoverticale #verticalforest #milan #milano #green #substainable #substainableliving #skyscraper

Siena has a very long history, dating back to the Etruscan era. The main development of the city happened in the Middle Ages. During that time, the city grew, and many of its most important buildings were built. Today, its unique urban skyline is visible from the hills that surround Siena; rich in monuments, palaces and churches, it is one of Italy’s most beautiful cities.

📍 Teatro Andromeda, Sicily. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ High up in the Italian mountain village of Santo Stefano Quisquina is a theater unlike any you’d find within a city. Lorenzo Reina, a sculptor and farmer, spent 30 years creating the Teatro di Andromeda as an amalgamation of his two great passions: art and nature. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stunning views of the surrounding landscape become the backdrop for the stage. Its 108 stone seats correspond to points in the Andromeda constellation. When seen from above, each seat forms the shape of an eight-pointed star. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The theater, which is among the highest open-air performance spaces in the world, hosts events during the warmer months, giving artists and visitors an experience like no other. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @ireneccloset ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Sicily #Tour #southernitaly #sicilytourism #sicilytour #sicilytours #visitsicily #visitsicilia #explore #italytour #italytours #viandandoluxurytravel #travel #traveltoitaly #italytravel #italytraveltips #sicilia #teatro #teatrodiandromeda #andromeda #andromedatheatre #theatre #opentheatre #art #view #panoramic

Torno, Como Lake. The town of Torno, composed of the villages of Rasina, Perlasca, Montepiatto and Piazzaga, is situated upon a headland, from where it looks down over the south-western end of lake Como. Facing it, on the other side of the lake, is the town of Moltrasio, while behind it rise the slopes of Monte Boletto (1236 m). Traces of pre-Roman settlements have been found in the area, as evidenced by the discovery of massi avelli (rocks that were dug into for burial purposes) in the woods around Piazzaga.

Piazza dei Miracoli, Pisa - Tuscany It is one of the most striking squares in the world, a masterful expression of human creativity. Since 1982 it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Welcome to Piazza Duomo in Pisa, renamed the Piazza dei Miracoli (“Square of Miracles”) by Gabriele d’Annunzio due to the sheer amount of masterpieces it hosts, all of which are in absolute harmony. Standing beside the greenest of lawns, the Cathedral, Leaning Tower, Baptistery and Monumental Cemetery are resplendent in their beauty vaunting a curious architectural perfection that combines the triumphant Pisan Romanesque with classical, early Christian, Lombard and Eastern motifs.

The scent of grapes, squashed and fermenting permeates the air. The harvest starts early in the morning in the hills above the sea, sunlight sparkles on dew covered vines and quickly warms the nighttime chill. Crates are sorted into red and white and carried away to be made into wine. At lunch everyone sits at an old trestle table outside, plates are piled high with pasta and they drink last years wine 🍷 Ph: @nickipositano . . . . . . . #luxurytravel #traveltoitaly #visititaly #italiantour #travel #travels #travelling #traveling #italy #italia #italytravel #travelblogger #travelgram #wanderlust #beautifuldestinations #luxurylifestyle #italian #italianlifestyle #landscape #viandandoluxurytravel #trip #positano #costieraamalfitana #amalficoast #grape #grapes
