Pick-up at your hotel, more details at booking
Your private driver will pick you up in the morning to bring you on a charming full day excursion that will include a unique truffle hunting experience and a private cooking class!
Your journey will start immediately while you enjoy the enchanting views from the car. You will reach soon the beautiful truffles region where the search and use of truffles has a very long tradition. The white truffle is part of the history of this area. In the San Miniato area and in hilly Volterra, fairs and village banquets celebrate the maturing of this tasty parasite, which thrives under oak trees and poplars.
During your guided tour, you will accompany a licensed truffle hunter and his trained truffle-sniffing dog in an exciting hunt for truffles! At the end of your hunting you will visit a Truffle Factory, where the owners will explain how they work on truffles, and will offer you a delightful tasting of their products before sampling same typical dishes.
Your tour will continue with the visit of the charming San Miniato, a small village famous for truffles in Tuscany. Here you will have time to explore this enchanting town on your own. We also suggest to enjoy a meal in one of the characteristic restaurants that the city offers! Just be sure to return in time for your cooking class!
Your next stop will be in Figline Valdarno an Arcadian oasis surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Here, you will be given a private lesson in the preparation of authentic Tuscan cuisine by a local chef. The concept of the cooking class is to focus on seasonal dishes so the ingredients used will be fresh. You will then of course enjoy what you have prepared along with selected wines that accompany the menu.
At the end of your tour meet your driver again to return to your accommodations in Florence.
