N 1   TRUFFLE EXPERIENCE:
(Available all days of the year  in English language)
The truffle hunting organizer says:
"Me and my family will guide you in the beautiful woods of Tuscany for truffle hunting with my dog. Truffle hunting is an ancient tradition in Tuscany and requires only one rule: respect for nature; for this reason it will be necessary a small briefing before going into the woods, a “sacred” place for the truffle hunters. During the truffle hunting I tell you about the truffle, the magic of its traditions, its history, the legends which recall its myth, its uses in the kitchen and you will learn how to recognize and distinguish a good truffle from other “fake” truffles of inferior quality and artificial products. I tell you about the biggest truffle in the world, found in San Miniato in 1954, and anecdotes that looks a lot like a superhero story… but here there are no heroes (apart from the truffle dogs, obviously).

After the search is scheduled tasting based on fresh and real truffle.
Example of tour scheduled:
- 10.00 a.m. meeting at the truffle hunter house;
- 10.30 a.m. walking in the woods for truffles hunting;

The services I offer, from truffle hunting to tasting, are aimed at making you know and appreciate the
REAL TRUFFLE and I guarantee that what you will see is exclusively the original truffle and not
artificial product.

Each itinerary will be organized around you and then customized according to your needs. All experiences include a very detailed explanation about the REAL TRUFFLE (in Italian or in English with the support of an interpreter): its nature, history and also few legends that have been
always fascinating for those which wants to get to know this mysterious Mother Nature's treasure.
