Hidden treasures in the woods
Italy is rich in truffle and many regions such as Tuscany, Umbria, Langhe, Marche and Abruzzo offer different varieties of the tuber.

Meet the truffle hunter and its dog in the wood and learn how one of the most renowned (and expensive) food in the world is found. Thanks to their significant sense of smell, truffle hunting dogs sniff out truffle that grows underground.

Truffle hunting can be organized for most of the year as there are different varieties growing, according to the season: black truffles are more likely to be found in autumn; white truffle are common during winter season.

Truffle hunting lasts about one hour and a half. At the end of the experience you will move to the truffle hunter house and have a truffle-based meal, including dishes like pasta with mushrooms and truffle, carpaccio and black truffle…

Dishes will be paired with some local wine.
