Shared tour




You'll enjoy some hours walking through typical woods, picking truffles along with a special guide, also an expert, but mostly a friend who will teach how to find truffles with the dog.

Hunt for rare truffles in the forest of Tuscany, and then enjoy your treasures in a decadent meal. After lunch, travel to the hills to experience the famous red wine of Tuscany.

The program starts at Fattoria Collebrunacchi, where you will meet Francesca, our truffle hunter.  A group is always a small group of up to 12 attendees. Francesca will explain the tricks and secrets of truffle hunting and how she trained her dog, Cioco.  The stroll in the forest is an easy walk, but it requires that you have regular mobility.  After the walk, we will go back to Francesca's house for a delicious lunch based on fresh truffles, which typically include:

Truffle appetizers, pasta topped with shaved truffles (Tagliolini al Tartufo), and dessert including Vin Santo wine. Francesca Farm also produces some excellent red and white wines, so during lunch, you could have a delicious match with them.

The Francesca's farm is also an ideal place for your purchases of truffles, here you will find quality and great value!

This program operates at San Miniato Tuscany, which is only 45 min. Drive from Florence.
