Full description
The experience begins with pickup from Florence and travels into the rolling Tuscan countryside to the luscious Chianti Hills. Upon arrival at the truffle hunting site, learn about the history of truffle hunting as a pastime as well as their significance in Italian cooking.

Once you’re all clued-up, enjoy a 1.5-hour hunt through the woods in search of delicious truffles under the expert guidance of a professional truffle hunter and his trained dogs. As you hunt, listen to your guide share insight about the variety of truffles, the characteristics of the soil, truffle seasonality, and other interesting facts about truffles. At the end of the hunt, celebrate your success with a glass of prosecco and a snack of truffle-topped crostini.

After the toast, head to a luxury location nestled in the vineyards of the Chianti Hills. Against a sprawling countryside backdrop, dine on a traditional Tuscan lunch of homemade pasta and a meat-dish, as well as a truffle-based dish if available. The meal is accompanied by some of the best red wines that Chianti has to offer, followed by tasty Cantucci almond biscuits with a Vinsanto dessert wine. At the end of an unforgettable experience, sit back and relax on the return journey to Florence and soak up the last of the scenic, rural views.
