Discover the art and science of truffle hunting at Urbani Tartufi, truffle hunters since 1872. In less than two hours from Rome you will be searching for truffles in the private hunting grounds of the Urbani family in Umbria, Italy's green heart. A professional truffle hunter, accompanied by his trusted dog, will walk you through the traditions, challenges and tricks for finding this elusive, world-renowned delicacy. Following the hunt, you will visit Truffeland, Italy's leading tartufaia, where you will be treated to a gourmet, truffle-based picnic. At Truffeland, you will journey through the scientific discoveries on truffles and their cultivation. Before returning to Rome, you will have a chance to visit Scheggino, Urbani's home town, a beautiful village nestled in Valnerina. Upon request, a member of the Urbani family will accompany you through the journey.
