A beautiful walk in the woods near Michelin restoraunt Zigante, well known place to eat Truffles and a room to rent. We recieved boots and enoyed all informations from Nikola our guide. He had 3 dogs and they fount big black truffles. Its really autentic, you need to dig out grass so you can take out truffle. 1-1,5h nice slow walk, little bridges inside the wood but all really near street and hotel.

Beautiful experience that lasted even more than 3 hours, staff available and efficient, drinks or wine brought to the tables several times, more than a trip it was a party we laughed, sang, danced, made friends and we really saw the dolphins !! !! numerous and numerous times ... if I return to Porec I will definitely do it again

It was a wonderful little trip through the beautiful forest. Nikola explained a lot to us, the dogs were very cute and we actually found white truffle. It was a great experience and I definitely recommend it.
