The reason Italy is a year-round tourist destination is that every season has unique experiences, landscapes, flavors, and events in store. Fall is the season dedicated to travelers who want to avoid crowds, enjoy mild temperatures, and savor refined seasonal products such as the famed Italian white truffle. Select Italy (http://selectitaly.com), a boutique travel company specialized in Italy, offers a wide array of activities and guided tours dedicated to travelers interested in gourmet experiences all about truffles.
Truffles, or tartufi in Italian, have the leading role in Italy’s autumn menus and events, such as the ‘International Alba White Truffle Fair,’ to name the most important. In its 85° edition, the White Truffle Fair will be held from October 11 to November 15, 2015 in Alba, province of Cuneo (Piedmont). But Piedmont is not the only region offering the opportunity to eat, hunt, and attend truffle festivals; during October and November, truffle fairs are held also in other regions such as Tuscany, Umbria, and Le Marche. Truffle lovers and foodie travelers interested in having an unique Italian truffle experience can rely on Select Italy’s exclusive food and wine excursions. From Piedmont to Le Marche and Tuscany, Select Italy features full and half day activities to get to know the truffle world:
- Wine & Truffles: Full Day Wine Excursion from the Langhe area
- Truffle Hunting in Le Marche: Half Day Excursion
- San Miniato and Truffles in Tuscany: A full day Excursion
“Going on a truffle excursion is a must for foodies visiting Italy. Although the best time of the year for white truffles is from October to November, primarily in the regions of Piedmont, Tuscany, Umbria, and Le Marche, there are areas blessed with truffles almost all year round,” says Beth Rubin, Manager of Custom Travel Planning at Select Italy. “For instance, in Le Marche it is black truffle season from January to March and from May to September, and white truffle season from September to December.”
