Truffle Hunting in Italy with Milan's Hotel Principe di Savoia

Hotel Principe di Savoia, MilanFor clients who are die-hard foodies (and Italian culinary enthusiasts), what could be better than truffle hunting in Italy’s Piedmont region? The Hotel Principe di Savoia, a glamorous icon on Milan’s Piazza della Repubblica that’s a favorite of the international jetset, has organized a special truffle hunting excursion to coincide with the fall’s annual Alba International White Truffle Fair in Centro Storico.

Guests will have the opportunity to check out the Alba Truffle Fair, explore the shops of the best truffle hunters in Alba, and take to the woods with dogs specially trained to sniff out this gastronomic delicacy. Priced from €581 per person and available October 1 to November 30, 2011, the truffle hunting package also includes a four-course lunch with black truffles, chauffeur-driven Mercedes transfers, and complimentary use of the Club 10 Fitness & Beauty Center. Minimum three night stay required.
