Full description
Travel to a centuries-old truffle farm which is nestled between ancient valleys high in the Umbrian mountains. Set off on a truffle-hunting adventure with an expert truffle hunter and his highly trained dogs. Take in the magnificent views of the scenery as you hunt. When enough truffles have been collected to satisfy your appetite, stop in a lovely spot for panoramic views of the area as you sip Prosecco, joined by a local shepherd and his flock of sheep.

Upon returning to the village, eat a delicious lunch of pasta, truffle bruschetta, capocollo, pecorino cheese, and plenty of wine. Savor the wild flavors as you enjoy this traditional Umbrian mountain lunch with your fellow hunters. You might be interested in wild boar stew, or perhaps roast guinea fowl, stuffed duck, or rabbit. Whatever takes your fancy, you'll feel full, satisfied, and rewarded.

After lunch, you will have free time to explore the village and it's surroundings before the return drive to Spoleto station and train back to Rome.
