Città di Castello – Truffle Hunt and Demonstration

Join us for an exciting experience near the town of Città di Castello, about 30 miles north of Perugia: you can go truffle hunting with Matteo, an award-winning truffle hunter, and his dog Sole.  After your hunt, you will return to the farmhouse where Matteo’s wife Elisa will reveal the secrets and the magical ways to wash and preserve truffles and how to create wonderful and typical dishes during a demonstration (note that this is not a hands-on cooking class, although a hands-on class is available on request for groups of 4 or more).  Finally, you will have a lunch feasting on these wonderful dishes, complete with good local wine.

  • Your experience will begin around 10:00 AM and end around 3:00 PM

Comfortable clothes and shoes recommended.

We absolutely loved Elisa and Teo who managed Citta Di Castello, we were planning on arriving the morning of the truffle demonstration however after talking to Elisa on the telephone she invited us to stay (as we were camping) the night before and have dinner with herself, Teo and the other guests that were joining us on our Truffle experience. Dinner was magnificent, our truffle demonstration was extremely interesting, we have both come away learning more than expected, and ended up staying for three nights enjoying dinners with other families staying at Car Solare, relaxing and enjoying a place that felt exactly like home. Teo and Elisa opened up their passion in life, their home and their wonderful area to us and we fell in love. Sanky S, AU

We enjoyed every aspect of the event. Watching the dog and the truffle hunter work together was fascinating. The meal and camaraderie following the hunt was outstanding. Great experience despite the fact that Italy's drought has cut the truffle crop significantly. Greg H.
