Where do I start….first and foremost even if like me you have no idea about truffles or any interest in them – or even if you love them – go on a truffle hunting trip with Mario. He is kind, entertaining and passionate for his craft and his enthusiasm is contagious.
A great experience for adults and kids alike you will not be disappointed by a hunt with the bigget celebrity and most charismatic of truffle hunters Mario.
