Umbria produces the highest number of black truffles in Italy and their quality is famous throughout the world.

Fortunately, truffle hunting in Umbria remains a beautiful and simple way of life – the mountains, the hunter, the dogs, the forest, a small pick and a leather bag more often than not full of truffles.

Umbria is one of the few places in the world blessed with an abundance of wild truffles and supplies Italy with 80% of the country’s truffle production. The truffle is a rare and precious aromatic kind of fungus that is found underground using trained truffle dogs that help find the hidden treasures.

Truffle hunting activities are available to our students and their companions while in Todi.
