Our Truffle Experience takes place in Savigno – famous for being The Land of Truffles in Valsamoggia, 30 mins drive from Bologna city – from May to November, to enjoy an afternoon full of surprises of what “truffle hunting” involves: the truffle hunter’s devotion in spending a whole day in the woods, the different seasons for truffle varieties, and Surprise Surprise, we may find the truffle!
