The Crete Senesi and its truffles

price on request

Description

A day of trekking to immerse yourself in the wonderful Crete Senesi in search of one of the most precious products of our region and in particular of Siena: the white truffle. Your driver will pick you up from your hotel in the morning and then take you to the lovely town of Chiusure, known for its stunning views of the gullies in the area. From here with your local guide you will begin an 8km hike, surrounded by the beauty of such a unique ecosystem. This trek will take you to one of the most important organic farms in the area. Here you will experience something unusual, visiting the farm’s truffle preserve and going out in search of truffles, guided by truffle hunters and their dogs. To end the tour there will be a seasonal truffle tasting, with the typical truffle “bruschetta”, truffle tagliolini and other typical traditional dishes of the Crete Senesi, enjoying a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside. Truffle hunting is available all year round except in the month of May, when hunting is not possible (in this case you can visit the farm and have lunch anyway); depending on the month you can find different varieties and qualities of truffle. Once the truffle tasting is over, the driver will take you back to the hotel.
