Lagotto Romagnolo

tuscany-travelThese gorgeous dogs are the experts at finding mushrooms and truffles in Tuscany. With their keen sense of smell, they are prized by their owners and carefully guarded. "Italian Water Dogs" are also very expensive, ranging in price from $1500 - $10,000. Their ancestors were expert water retrieving dogs. Now they are "born to dig" and find the treasures growing underneath the soil.

Nearly 320 tons of truffles are harvested annually in Tuscany. We get super excited about going on a truffle hunts during our tours of Tuscany and workshops in Tuscany. The person who finds the biggest truffle gets a prize! We arrange these hunts only in season and only if specifically requested by our guests. October and November are the perfect months for hunting. Join Tuscan Muse in Tuscany and let's go hunting!

  • Our stay at Le Casacce will always be a glorious memory. By the time the trip was over, we already missed our new friend, Linda. We came home filled with tales of the sights we had seen, the excellent food we had eaten and the good times made possible by Tuscan Muse
