TRUFFLE HUNTING EXCURSIONS
Available from October 1
How does truffle hunting work? You’ll first jump into a forest-green SUV with our expert guides and truffle dogs, leaving Villa Lena when there is still a touch of early morning fog in the hills. Set off in small groups for a one- to two-hour walk in nature, where you’ll learn the forest’s fascinating history as a sacred place for the Etruscans, detect the call of birds and the tracks of wild boar, and discover the signs of hidden white truffles. After a relaxing morning, you’ll return to the Villa with the famous tartufo bianco of Palaia secured.
