...on the fragrant paths of the buried truffle.

Take part in a unique experience in Tuscany with a seasonal truffle hunt.

Between the months of June and November, truffles ripen underground in the woods of the Montefiesole estates, giving off an aroma all their own. With our expert guide and our truffle dogs, it is possible to take part in this off-the-beaten-track yet customary event at the Fattoria Lavacchio.

This activity begins with a warm welcome and an introduction to explain the growth of this unusual tuber. This is not only an activity for food lovers, but also an exciting way to get in touch with Tuscan nature.

After the hunt, you can taste the truffles, accompanied by the estate’s organic wine.
