The Real Truffle Hunting in Abruzzo
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."
