45th Exibition Market Festival of White Truffle of San Miniato 14-15, 21-22, 28-29 November , 5-6 December. The first Festival of the White Truffle of San Miniato was held on the 26th of October 1969 in Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square) and after a break of two years (surely meant to understand the potential of this valuable product) it has been held every year since then. Over the years the festival has grown tremendously and has become today an internationally recognized exhibition: together with the White Truffle, always the star of the festivities, other local products such as wine, cheese and cold cuts are displayed and this makes these three November weekends an important showcase for Tuscan area.
We also propose you a half-day excursion of truffle hunting - a nice walk in a wood with a truffle searcher and his dog to find out the secrets of truffles. Interesting and funny! Excursion and tasting € 98,00 per person, with 2-4 participants. Surcharge for lunch or dinner on request – the surcharge depends on the truffle type, according to the season, and to its quotation on he market. It is available all year round thanks to the several kinds of truffles growing in the different seasons.
