What You Can Expect

Small-Group Truffle Hunting and Wine Experience from Florence with Lunch

Hunt for truffles in Tuscany

Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll join up with your guide and travel out of the city by coach.   

Venture westward to the Tuscan town of San Miniato, renowned for the white truffle found in its surrounding woodlands. This impressive town not only supplies the most precious and aromatic truffles, but is also said to provide close to 80 percent of the world's most desired gourmet products.

Upon entering the forest, meet your truffle hunter and his companion, a canine equipped with specialized training to seek out the truffles. Follow the pair through the woods on a leisurely walk as the dog scans under the forest floor. You’ll know when you’ve struck gold: watch as the dog begins to dig until the delicacy is unearthed.

Afterward, reunite with your driver and relax with a 2-course lunch at a local truffle shop. Treat your taste buds to a truffle-based appetizer, before savoring a fresh truffle pasta accompanied by local wine.

With appetites sated, continue to a winery in the world-famous region of Chianti. Join your winemaker host and learn about the process behind the flavorful blends that you sample, including Super Tuscan and the estate’s Chianti DOCG.

Your tour will conclude with a smooth ride back to Florence.
