A great event for gourmets
Every year the Tuscan town San Miniato, located halfway between Pisa and Florence, celebrates the National Festival of the White Truffle, an event that attracts thousands of truffle lovers from all the world.
The protagonist of the festival is the extraordinarily perfumed and world renowned White Truffle of San Miniato, along with a large number of other local specialities like excellent wines, extra virgin olive oil, pecorino cheese, honey, hams, salamis and other cold cuts, chocolate, bread & focaccia, pickles, preserves, cakes and many other curiosities.
On the last three Saturdays afternoons and Sundays of November every year you can taste and buy fresh white truffle and browse through the stands discovering an unnumbered series of truffle-based products like truffle oil, pastes and sauces, truffle salt and other preserves.
