Be prepared to enjoy your day in a peaceful place full of greenery, away from the city chaos. You’ll be able to watch a truffle dog at work in harmony with nature.
We will walk in different types of woods, depending on the period, where you will find unblemished places and beautiful landscapes. You will become real experts, discovering the world of truffles!
After the excursion, we will go to a typical Italian farmhouse where we will taste the truffles found in traditional Italian foods.
The menu includes:
- Appetizer with salami, cheeses, seasonal vegetables and bruschetta with truffles.
- Homemade pasta with fresh truffles.
- Eggs with truffles, seasonal vegetables.
- Dessert.

We also have menus for vegetarians, celiacs and vegans.
It will be an unforgettable day, because you will have learned everything about truffles!
Other things to note
Long and comfortable trousers are required (the ankles must be covered ).
I also suggest wearing a comfortable pair of boots. If you don’t have them, sneakers are good too.
Bring a bottle of water.

My name is Federico, I'm 31 years old and I'm a great lover of dogs. Fascinated by this beautiful and unexplored world, in 2014, I started studying truffle hunting. To expand my knowledge, I studied to become a dog trainer, a leader, a parent, and a friend to my dogs.
I’m a very sunny person and love being with other people, so come see us; my dogs and I are waiting for you!

Where you'll be

Truffles are mushrooms originated and grown underneath the land surface. Because of the symbiotic relationship established with trees, the genre of truffles and the places where they can be found may vary depending on the harvest period. From January to September we will look for truffles near Rome, from October to December our research will be rather directed towards higher altitudes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 56 reviews.

What an extraordinary experience! Federico loves what he does: his great, friendly and enchanting dogs, the forests of Lazio - and to share his passion (and that of his dogs ;-)) for truffles with the people who accompany him. In every moment my daughter and I felt his passion. And the fact that his father and girlfriend Guilia surprised us at his home with a multi-course menu and so much warmth of heart made this an unforgettable experience. The word hospitality-friendship is perhaps the best word to describe it. Thank you very much!

We had an incredible day. Federico took us to a wonderful forest. The dogs were adorable, very friendly and very well trained for the hunt. Our son played with the dogs in total safety. Federico explained us a lot of things about truffles. Then we had lunch with his family. The lunch was homemade and of great quality. It was wonderful to share this lunch with his family, we talked a lot and did not see time Running. It was a true great experience i really recommand to anyone

Esperienza troppo bella per farla una volta sola, infatti ho replicato anche quest'anno! Una bellissima escursione nel mondo dei tartufi dalla terra alla tavola. Si parte nel bosco, dove cani addestrati scovano il tartufo grazie al loro fiuto, e si finisce a tavola, dove si cena con i prodotti trovati, cucinati divinamente da Federico e dalla sua famiglia.

We had such an awesome experience with Federico. He loves his work and his dogs and it was an incredible experience to have him share his passion with us. Hunting & lunch were incredible. If you're looking for an off the beaten path local experience we would highly recommend spending the day with Federico.

What a beautiful day in the woods! It was a pure joy to learn how dogs find truffles, what kind of truffles there are, and how dogs are trained to find them (we even had one cute little one in the training with us). After the hunt, we all were invited to Federico's home, where his father and he served us a delicious meal with locally produced cheeses, cured meat, and of course the best dishes with truffles. Federico is a wonderful host who makes every guest feel personally welcome, connects with them and tells good stories. His dogs are being shown a lot of respect and love, which only adds good vibes throughout the day. This experience is the best you can do if you want a short break from the beautiful but busy city of Rome.
