Overview

My name is Massimo, I am a truffle hunter and I live in San Miniato, one of the undisputed world capital of truffle, located near Florence, Pisa and Siena, right in the heart of Tuscany. All my "experiences" are private tour and include a very detailed explanation about the REAL TRUFFLE: its nature, history, cuisine and also many legends that have been always fascinating for those which wants to get to know this mysterious Mother Nature's treasure. I look forward to welcoming in San Miniato to share with you this treasure.

After the sensory overload that is Milan and Florence (in a good way :)), a perfect break is to spend some time in San Miniato with Massimo and his family. A short 30-minute train ride from Florence has you arriving in San Miniato where Massimo...More
