San Miniato is known over the world for the white truffles. It may come as a surprise to some that San Miniato, a small town in Tuscany, supplies nearly 80% of the world’s precious white truffles.

You will take part in a once-in-a-lifetime experience and search for truffles with a truffle-hunting dog through the woods of Tuscany. Follow the dog hurriedly through the forest as he sniffs about and experience the surge of excitement as he starts digging for this edible treasure (white truffles go for nearly $15,000 per kg).

On Saturdays Nov 12th - 19th - 26th, and Dec 3rd tour stops at San Miniato to visit the famous international truffle fair. Here you can taste and buy several truffle products.
