Full description

Think Tuscany is just wine and rolling hills?

Well, it's not!

Join us on an exciting truffle hunt in the Chianti woods and get ready to step into the shoes of an authentic truffle hunter for two hours.

You will also meet your four-legged guide in Siena, the area's true truffle expert, who will guide you through one of the area's natural truffle grounds with his infallible nose. Not only will you experience the thrill of the search, but you will also learn all about truffles: how they are born, where they are found, and even how a dog is trained to find them.

Tuscany is waiting to show you that there is much more than wine among its wonders!

What we will do

We are waiting for you at our farm in Siena, to welcome you into a world of mysteries and flavours: truffle hunting!

After the introductions, we will dedicate about 15 minutes to a briefing on the activity. You will learn not only about truffle hunting techniques, but also curiosities about our faithful truffle dogs and the territory we are about to explore.

We will then set off with the truffle hunter and dogs in search of these precious culinary treasures, moving to a natural truffle ground in the area.

You will watch as the dogs sniff and dig, following them in a tireless dance until theexciting moment of discovery. Each truffle collected is a small victory, a triumph of nature and intuition.

Finally, we return to the starting point. The total duration of the activity is 2 hours and 30 minutes.

Who it is aimed at

The experience is suitable for everyone from the age of 4.

Other information
