The thrill that the Truffle Tour Italy gives you is the highest level among offers of Italy Tours R Us. Italian truffles, as you may know, are highly prized for their aromatic qualities. Even during the Roman Empire, domesticated female pigs have been used to sniff out Italian truffles. The hogs can smell out the truffles from three feet underground! Dogs slowly became more common as they are less likely to eat their finds. When truffles can cost up over $10,000 per pound, this trait is important!
