If you prefer to hunt for fresh truffles in comfort, here are some of Italy’s 2017 Truffle Festivals
ALBA - Alba’s white truffle fair and market is one of the best and worth a special trip. The event runs from this year from October 7 to 26th November with gastronomic stands and ends with the truffle world auction and the white truffle walk for tourists. During the fair, there are concerts and lots of entertainment as well. The week before leads up to this event with the famous donkey Palio and the chef contest; the finalist will then enter the world's most prestigious cooking contest the Bocouse d’ Or in France next January. http://www.fieradeltartufo. org/
