In Tuscany during November, people flock to the San Miniato Truffle Fair. It’s held in a medieval hall on the 2nd, 3rd and 3rd weekends of November, the heart of truffle gathering season. 25% of Italy’s truffles are found in this region and other towns also have truffle festivals in October and November including Volterra and San Giovanni d’Asso near Siena. If you haven’t tried truffles, this is your chance.
