TRUFFLE HUNTING TOUR IN TUSCANY
We propose 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! Tours are private, on request and escorted by our English speaking guide. The excursion takes place in the surroundings of the medieval town of San Miniato, charming Tuscan town particularly famous for the truffles growing in its soil. During the walk in the wood with the truffle searcher, you’ll have the possibility of learning a lot about truffles: where and how they grows, the different types, how dogs are trained for the search, how truffles are dug out... At the end of the walking, you can't miss to taste the truffles you have just learned about! We propose a small tasting of truffle-based products as well as another excellence of the place - the olive oil - just at the oil mill where olives are pressed. To get in touch with another small part of Tuscany and sample it. For gourmet lovers, in alternative to the tasting, a lunch or dinner with truffle tasting menu in a typical restaurant in the countryside around San Miniato.
