What you'll do
Be prepared to enjoy your day in a green and peaceful place, away from the city chaos. You’ll be able to watch a truffle dog at work in harmony with nature. It will be a delightful surprise to see how much satisfaction our faithful friends can give us! During the journey, I will tell you everything about truffles and I will be happy to answer at any of your questions. By the end of the hike, I will bring you to a typical farmhouse where you will be able to taste delicious dishes based on truffles and not only that! The menu includes: - Appetizer with salami, cheeses, jams, seasonal vegetables and bruschetta with truffles. - Homemade pasta with fresh truffle. - Eggs with truffles, seasonal vegetables, wild boar. - Dessert. - Free water and wine. - Coffee and bitter. We also have menus for vegetarians, celiacs and vegans. The meeting point is the farm "Aia del Tufo" which is a 50 minute drive from Orvieto, in the Tuscan Maremma. You can reach the meeting point only with the car. Contact me for more information.
My name is Federico, I'm a truffle hunter and a dog trainer. I work in a dog center and I specialize in training dogs for truffle hunting and basic obedience. Every day I work hard to improve my knowledge. I’m glad to share this experience with people coming from all over the world and I’m also very pleased to spread the knowledge about this typical Italian product. I’m an outgoing and social person, come visit us, my dogs and I are waiting for you!

Where you'll be
Truffles are mushrooms originated and grown underneath the land surface. Because of the symbiotic relationship established with trees, the genre of truffles and the places where they can be found may vary depending on the harvest period. From January to September we will look for truffles near Castell’azzara, from October to December our research will be rather directed towards higher altitudes.
