San Miniato is a small center in Tuscany, 40 km away from Florence, also known for its white truffle.
The the hills surrounding the town represent a prominent truffle-producing area for the search of white truffle. Because of that San Miniato is also called “The City of Trufflesâ€ť.
The combination of forest fauna and geological substratum, makes possible the presence of this valued tuber in this area (the white truffle is even harder to find — and also more valued, than the black truffle).
During the last three week-ends of November San Miniato celebrates its white truffle with a festival that also offer many other local specialties, such as wine, olive oil, and cheeses.
