One excursion that is a must when visiting Abruzzo is to go hunting for the woods’ most secret and prized delicacies – truffles!
Abruzzo is famous as a region throughout Italy for producing the most truffles that are exported to afficicianados and the best restaurants around the world.
Join us for a guided late afternoon truffle hunt followed by a delicious multi-course dinner using the truffles we find at one of Abruzzo’s best Agriturismo, famed for its home-cured salamis and meats, wonderful antipasti and slow-cooked lamb.
Franco, your (truffle hunter) and our English language speaking guide and the most important character of the group will accompany you through the olive grove up to linden, hazelnut and oak trees copses to experience the wonders of a truffle dog’s nose in uncovering aromatic musky black truffles.
