Nikola is a great guide, he knows his stuff about truffles, history and nature altogether. I was thrilled with wild asparagus that we found while we were looking for truffles. Dogs are extra friendly and we enjoyed their company.

No. We got to taste a bit of a fresh truffle, that was fantastic. But no, if the dogs find a large truffle, it goes to market in care of the guide.
