Tis the season

Along the streets of every town center, you will find people selling a variety of nuts. Peanuts, Walnuts, Pistachio's. You may even see an assortment of dried fruit sold by the kilogram. 

Tis the season for roasted Chestnuts and Young wine also known as in Italy 
Castagne e Vino Novello. 

Here is a photo that was taken  along the streets of downtown Treviso. 
You can see the assortment of nuts and dried fruits. 

This is my cousin Anna enjoying roasted Chestnuts in Treviso :) 




  1. Thanks Mom, I am glad you like it :) xo

  2. Oh fun! We have a chestnut roasting fellow in the main piazza from September through January. It's weird in September when it's still hot to see the billowing smoke. But I like Chestnuts. Ciao bella :) Fun post, short, sweet and w/ kinda post. Dea :)

    1. Thanks so much Dea ~ I am not a fan of chestnuts, but Marco and my cousin are :) xoxo

  3. Looks so fun! :) Wish I could be in Italy this Christmas season! :)

  4. Yea, that is different Dea, about the roasted chestnuts starting in September. If I remember right, the first time I saw the stands would be in November or maybe at the end of October.. I personally am not a fan of Chestnuts which is strange because I love the smell of roasted chestnuts on a cold winter day. Ha! Grazie mille Dea :) Happy to hear from you. Ciao bella.

    Thanks so much, Ryan :) Maybe next year? What do they do in Florida? Anything interesting? xo

  5. Florida is 77 degrees today. They don't have much other than the ice exhibit at the Gaylord Palms and Disney decorates. It's hard to get into the christmas spirit in Florida.
