    Truffle Hunting in Tuscany: A Full Day Excursion in Crete Senesi

Truffle Hunting in Tuscany: A Full Day Excursion in Crete Senesi

  • City: Florence
  • Duration: Approximately 8 hours


Experience a real Tuscan truffle hunt by taking part in our full-day culinary expedition to the lovely hill town of San Giovanni d'Asso in the very heart of the Sienese countryside. You will meet a trifolaio (truffle hunter) and learn about the area's food traditions and local truffle varieties. Then, armed with this knowledge and accompanied by the trifolaio and his trained truffle dogs, you'll head out on your very own search for these precious (and pricey!) underground mushrooms.

The truffle hunt concludes with lunch at the lovely Osteria delle Crete, where you will be served a mouthwatering meal of homemade tagliolini pasta and other dishes prepared with the truffles you found.

A guided walking tour of the medieval village of San Giovanni d'Asso will follow. Built at the dawn of Christianity in Italy, it boasts an impressive 12th-century castle that now houses the town offices.
