Full description
Following a pickup from your accommodation in Turin, your personal driver will take to Alba in the Piedmont region, the gastronomical capital of Italy famous for its exquisite black and white truffles approximately an hour's drive away. Together with your truffle-hunting expert and well-trained dogs, you will search fertile ground to find your own truffles.   The real hero of the excursion is the dog who will keep moving through the trees and sniffing at the base of the trunks to find the truffles. Your guide will show you how to use special equipment to delicately pull out the truffles. During a walk through the woods, truffle experts will explain everything related to this culinary delicacy. After the hunting experience in the woods, you will be guided to the picturesque restaurant surrounded by an unforgettable landscape of vineyards. You will enjoy the excellent combination of truffle delicacies paired with famous Barolo wine. Following the lunch, your driver will take to Barbaresco village for a short walk around local heritage sites. Barbaresco village is surrounded by vineyards and characterized by its 30m 11th-century tower visible from miles around. At the end of this incredible experience, your driver will take you back to Turin in comfort while you enjoy the picturesque landscape of Alba.
