Truffle Hunting in Tuscany

Combining White & Black Truffles with a delicious lunch in a farm of San Miniato

Truffle hunt with lunch at San Miniato - White Truffle

Guided Tour in English

For those who love the real Tuscan truffle, San Miniato is a must place. In this experience, you will be walking by a real truffle hunter and her dog and find out how the dog detects truffles in the woods lands.
Later, you will appreciate a delicious lunch of pasta with fresh truffle.


Highlights
  • Full day educational excursion with our English speaking food and wine expert.
  • Stroll in a true forest of Tuscany to hunt truffles with our professional hunter and her dog.
  • Enjoy a delicious typical Tuscan meal based on fresh truffles in a private villa.

Truffle hunting experience from Florence is sure to fire your foodie instinct! 

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 experiences the surge of excitement as he starts digging for this edible treasure (white truffles go for nearly $15,000 per kg).

On Saturdays Nov 9th - 16th - and 23rd, tour stops at San Miniato to visit the famous international truffle fair. Here you can taste and buy several truffle products
