An authentic truffle hunt in the beautiful Umbrian hills, an unforgettable culinary experience, a day spent in the company of colorful locals, a stroll through some stunning countryside... The Wild Foods Gastronomical Adventure is a piece of Italy you will never forget. You spend a day immersed in authentic traditional Italian company, culture and cuisine. You hunt truffles, cook truffles, eat truffles, as well as get to experience an amazing part of Italy far away from the usual tourist trails. You also experience some traditional 'wild' cuisine, maybe wild boar stew, sauteed hare, or roast guinea fowl. It's great for foodies and wine-lovers, or for anyone just wanting to immerse themselves in the landscape, people and culture of Umbria.

Mother and I declined a pick up from Assisi and decided to drive to the site on our own. I suggest you take the ride offered by the hostess. We got lost. Lol. Mom and I were looking for a local, true to life, non touristy activity to participate in during our trip. This adventure didn't disappoint. Although we missed... More

Don't miss this one! My wife and I are in the midst of spending 3 weeks in Umbria. We've travelled by foot and train to many sites, fairs and hilltop towns from our home base here in Spoleto. Lovers of food and wine, we decided to explore other tours aside from the more generic wine tastings and menu tipici that... More

(there are 32 of them!) the truffle experience, the welcoming people, and the food!! The food...from the welcoming morning coffee to the... More

This was an incredibly unique and fun experience! This family is very kind and welcoming. We learned so much about truffle hunting and the basics of the truffle industry in Italy. We watched the dogs in action, had a snack with truffles at the top of the hill, and spent the remainder of the day in the village, watching the... More

Wild Foods Adventure Monte Falco is the most fabulous farm trip you could experience. The animals, farm workers and the family are amazing. Home made cheese, superb wines, cooked morning tea, and home made pasta and more wine for lunch. Mac and Francesca and their families have done a great job in setting up this day adventure on their property.... More

if this day was the only one we had in Italy it would have made flying here from Cape Town worthwhile! Mac and his family treated us to a day we will remember forever! they gave us a real insight into life as a rural farming family in Umbria. Francesca, Mac's wife's family has been farming in Pettino for a... More

So awesome, went on a family vacation in April of 2013 (yes review is really late, but I just remembered bc we are heading back to Italy). Everything about it was just awesome, Mac and his family were incredibly hospitable and kind. If you are looking for a truly unique non-touristy experience, get on board with Mac.

All the wonderful reviews of this activity are totally true! We spent the day with Mac, Francesca, and their wonderful extended family on the day after Easter. We loved the fact that a driver was sent to deliver us to the mountain location and return us home. The family embraced us like friends and shared fascinating insights into their lives... More
