TRUFFLE HUNTING WITH LUNCH IN TYPICAL FARMHOUSE
Meet the driver at the hotel lobby and transfer to the Pienza area for an interesting truffle hunting. Truffles were considered mysterious and divine by ancient peoples. The Greeks believed that truffles grew at the spot where thunderbolts, hurled by the god Zeus, hit the ground. The ancient Romans loved them for their aphrodisiac properties and poet Cicero called them “earth’s offspring. During this activity you’ll learn all the important things concerning this precious product. The experience begins with an introduction to the world of truffle then you’ll move into the woods with your truffle expert and his dog looking for truffles (white winter truffle). Return to the farmhouse where you’ll have a great lunch based on truffles and typical wine. The activity will last about 5 hours. We will continue with drive tour in Tuscany countryside with stop in typical Tuscany’s towns.
