Serra San Quirico: Looking for truffles

Duration: 3 Hours
From: Serra San Quirico
Languages: Italian / English / Spanish
With Antonio and his truffle dogs on a truffle hunt, in search of the black gold in Le Marche.

Experience an afternoon in nature in the shady truffle forest. A tour follows at the training field where truffle dogs are trained and/or retrained, after which one visits the breeding grounds of the truffle trees.

The truffle hunt itself is, of course, exciting, where you go through the truffle forest together with Antonio and one of the truffle dogs. A nice experience to experience the interaction between owner and dog. Once the truffle scents have been sniffed, the dogs appear to be extremely concentrated on their task and then indicate the conscious place. A magical moment is the excavation itself, will it be one large truffle or a mini specimen?

The end of the truffle forest also offers a wide view of the magnificent hilly landscape.

After the truffle hunt it is time to strengthen the inner man sitting under the truffle trees, with a glass of wine and delicious local dishes.
