TRUFFLE HUNTING is an unforgettable experience both for your nose and your mouth!
An English speaking private tour leader(on request also German, Spanish, French, Italian or Russian are available) meets you and accompanies you to the premises of a local truffle hunter. Together with the hunter, his dog and the guide you walk into the surrounding woods, in the charming area of the Pisan hills, for a trufflehunting session of 1.5 hours. The destination in the woods varies according to the season because the several kinds of truffle available throughout the year grow in different areas.
After the walk in the woods, you get back to the hunter's place, which is also a famousshop of fresh truffles, and taste truffle oil, truffle sauces and very original truffle-based products like honey, balsamico and cheese.
The duration of the tour is 2 hours. It is possible to include a truffle-based full lunch after the hunting and tasting experience at a local restaurant, within walking distance from the hunter's place. The truffle tour with lunch takes 3,5 hours.
The tour is a great occasion for you to visitSan Miniato, a medieval town near Florence famous for its truffles, located just 10 minutes from the location of the truffle hunting.
