Forte dei Marmi Truffle Hunting Experience

In the province of Lucca, overlooking the Ligurian Sea, there is one of the most popular seaside resorts of the whole Tyrrhenian Sea, famous not only in Italy but all over the world: Forte dei Marmi. The small town was born around an ancient pier built in the sixteenth century, on which were loaded the marbles that came from the nearby Apuan Alps, destined to undertake long journeys by sea starting from here.

The success of Forte dei Marmi then continued even into the early twentieth century, becoming the favorite destination of the nobles of Tuscany and northern Italy, and at the same time attracting the attention of many European families, increasingly curious to see with their own eyes so much beauty. So it was that the place became highly sought after and frequented by many prominent figures from the world of cinema, politics, art and so on.

My wife and I celebrated our 22th wedding anniversary with a trip to Forte dei Marmi inItaly. My wife absolutely wanted to go Truffle hunting. I was a little skeptical, but boy was this fantastic! It was just my wife and I. A driver picked us up at our hotel in Forte dei Marmi Hotel and drove us about half an hour. The dogs ran wild. Marco and Roki explained that it was white truffle season and they are a little harder to find. We found 4 that day. Marco was very personable, friendly and engaging. A great guy.
