San Miniato: The White Truffle Capital
San Miniato, a charming hilltop town situated between Florence and Pisa, is often hailed as the white truffle capital of Tuscany. Its rich, fertile soil and favorable climate provide the ideal conditions for truffle growth. Every year, in November, the town hosts the Mostra Mercato del Tartufo Bianco (White Truffle Fair), a celebration of this prized culinary gem.
