The azure blue sky spans the scenery, and the mountains in the autumn offer a breathtaking panoramic view. The apple and vine harvest in the Isarco Valley is almost finished in October, and during the Apple Festival in Naz/Sciaves the new Apple Queen will be crowned. Beautiful hikes during your vacation in October will take you through colourful vineyards and gaudy forests.
