Abruzzo truffle hunt & 10 courses meal
I'm a food lover by nature and also a native of Abruzzo. I'm an official Tour Leader recognised by the Abruzzo Region.
I’ve been eating truffles since my mother had me in her womb, and since we live in a rich truffle area, I know the art and secrets of truffles very well. When I was 7 I trained my first truffle dog.
I'm the founder of Experience BellaVita, a company that promotes sustainable tourism experiences in the less touristic areas of Italy, in Abruzzo. I and my friend Alberto, we do together the experiences that I designed over the years. He has my same qualifications and passion for Abruzzo.

In this truffle experience in Abruzzo, you will go behind the scenes of one of the world’s most secretive businesses in the world.
A unique truffle hunt among nature, learning how to find, store and eat the black gems in the secret region of Abruzzo.
After a secret drive in the countryside of the Teramo in Abruzzo, we meet our Expert Truffle Hunter and get into the forest with his trained dogs Luna & Piccola.
During the hunt in the beautiful countryside of the National Park, I'll share with you all about the truffle, its traditions, its history, its myths and uses in the kitchen.
You'll learn how to recognize and distinguish a good truffle from other truffles of inferior quality.
