“Marino and his start up business Experience BellaVita is one not to be missed if you happen to be in the region of Abruzzo. Myself and a friend of mine booked ourselves into a truffle hunting tour. It was very well organized and we got see, feel and taste everything truffle. Marino is well connected and will show you things a normal tourist would not see. He went out of his way and beyond our expectations and i am more than happy to be a return customer when i visit again.”Hendrik LepelIreland
The Real Truffle Experience – Half Day
“We had such a fun day with Marino. The truffle hunt was so interesting and unique followed by an amazing lunch of everything truffle. It was really delicious! Marino is so passionate about food and truffles and Italy so it was truly a pleasure to spend the day with him. Marino helped us choose some truffles to purchase for a dinner we planned to make for our friends. The dinner was a huge hit, enjoyed by all. He even added a personal tour of his town at the end. We’re still smiling about our day with Marino!”Nancy RayUSA, Arizona
“The truffle hunting experience we did with Marino, Ginesio and Enrico was truly one of the most special and memorable days we've had on our 14 day road trip (and that's saying something since I got engaged on this trip 4 days ago!). If you love nature, dogs, culinary arts, and culture, DO THIS. Learning about the different truffles and seasons, the industry, and how the dogs hunt was fascinating. We found quite a bit on our hunt even for the end of season. Marino, the truffle Hunter Ginesio and the chef Enrico were all so filled with warmth, hospitality, and obvious love and passion for their region, nature, and the fruits of their environment it was such a special time.”Corina P.USA, California
