Overview
Tempted by truffles? Take a truffle-hunting jaunt through Tuscany on this 6-hour tour from Florence! Travel by air-conditioned minivan to the wooded hills around San Miniato, a medieval town fêted for its precious white truffle. Then, accompany an experienced hunter and his dog as they scout out nature’s gourmet gold in the woodland. Finish with a light 2-course lunch, including 'tagliolini al tartufo' — pasta with fresh truffle — and a wine tasting in Chianti before your return to Florence. Numbers are limited to eight on this small-group tour for a personalized experience.
Highlights
  • Go on an authentic truffle hunt with a small-group tour from Florence
  • Traipse through the woods with a guide and their truffle-sniffing dog
  • Enjoy a 2-course truffle-themed lunch and sample Chianti region wines
  • Tour is limited to eight people to ensure plenty of personal attention
What to Expect
Join up with your guide at the Piazza Cavalleggeri in central Florence. You’ll leave the city by air-conditioned minivan traveling west into the Tuscan countryside. You’ll stop in the town of San Miniato, the truffle capital of Tuscany, whose surrounding woodlands are home to the rare Italian white truffle.
Meet your truffle-hunter guide and his dog for a walk through the woods in search of the precious delicacy. You’ll follow the dog as he sniffs the ground to locate the prized fungus.
Afterward, reconvene for a lunch that includes a truffle-based appetizer, a truffle pasta, and a local wine.
Next, you’ll visit a winery in the world-famous Chianti region. You’ll learn about the art of Tuscan winemaking and sample several blends including the Super Tuscan and the winery’s own Chianti DOCG.
Your tour concludes with the drive back to Florence.
