Fall bucket list for adults and lovers of everything Italy.

Fall bucket list ideas for when you are in Italy, or you want to feel like you were here!

My Fall bucket list includes all the cozy and nourishing things you can do to celebrate the falling-leaves season. It includes books, food, music, art, DIY projects, movies, and a magazine!

homemade Christmas gifts: basil pesto

caldarroste

Have a Roman walk while savoring hot caldarroste (roasted chestnuts) from a street vendor. They’re a delicious treat while window shopping.

Go to the hot springs. Italy is rich in spa spots, wild or in beautiful ancient buildings.

MATERA

The city of Sassi.

VENICE

The city of Opulence.

FLORENCE

The city of Renaissance.

art

Art in Rome: go see the Greek and Ancient Rome art exhibition in Scuderie del Quirinale: Pompei e Santorini. Not only the art show is incredible, but Scuderie is also one of the best art galleries in Rome. Bonus tip: the gallery has the most exciting bookstore of all Rome museums!
