Marino

I'm a food lover by nature and also a native of Abruzzo. I'm an official Tour Leader recognised by the Abruzzo Region. I’ve been eating truffles since my mother had me in her womb, and since we live in a rich truffle area, I know the art and secrets of truffles very well. When I was 7 I trained my first truffle dog. I'm the founder of Experience BellaVita, a company that promotes sustainable tourism experiences in the less touristic areas of Italy, in Abruzzo. I and my friend Alberto, we do together the experiences that I designed over the years. He has my same qualifications and passion for Abruzzo. 1 of the 5* reviews "My mother and I enjoyed the Truffle Hunt Tour and Meal and it exceeded our expectations in every possible way. Marino is organized, knowledgeable, and incredibly kind and easy to chat with."

Where you'll be

Abruzzo, greenest region of Europe will surprise you! We will be hunting truffles in the green countryside of the 'Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga' National park. A great spot for visiting the whole region, from mountains, rivers, waterfalls, canyons, to historic medieval towns, vineyards, olive groves, and at 20m away from the beach. The cooking and lunch class will be in a small family-owned restaurant located in a small medieval hamlet.
