  • Florence: Truffle Hunting Tour, Wine Tasting, and Lunch

    1. Florence: Truffle Hunting Tour, Wine Tasting, and Lunch

    Enjoy the charming Tuscan countryside and the haunting beauty of the Tuscan forests on a day spent hunting for truffles in the woods. Take a trip from Florence out into the countryside and visit San Miniato, a small town in Tuscany that supplies nearly 80% of the world's precious white truffles. Follow the dog hurriedly through the forest as he sniffs about and experience the surge of excitement as he starts digging for these edible treasures. Once some truffles have been found, you will be treated to a delightful meal that incorporates the fresh truffle you just discovered along with a wine tasting of local area wines.

    Our day was spent with enjoying the amazing Florence scenery, the truffle hunting was amazing to watch them being uncovered- we were a little suspicious at the ease however as the hills were also used by other truffle hunters they would be crazy to plant them. The meal we enjoyed with new friends showed us the best of what truffles have to offer, with a Chianti winery stop on the way back to Florence rounded out a great day
