5.Searching for… truffle
Not everyone knows that Tuscany is a region known for truffles. San Miniato is the city that most represents it, located on top of three small hills, overlooking the lower Arno valley, between Pisa and Florence. The treasure it holds is the white truffle of the Samminiatesi hills.
The search and tasting of truffles are one of the most evocative and unique activities that can be done. Together with the truffle hunter and his inseparable dog, with his superfine nose, you can personally go truffle hunting with your guests and then taste what you have found. Just as it happens during the splendid Truffle Experience of Savini Truffles.
