Truffle hunting in LeMarche

This week we are driving through the stunningly beautiful LeMarche region in Italy looking for truffles and tasting wine, artisan beer and cheese and eating at least 5 courses for both lunch and dinner!  This amazing little region of Italy has not yet been discovered by the crowds and we hope it will stay that way. Achingly beautiful, with lush green mountains oncd home to many little dukedoms - each referred to as "una marca" has given the region its unusual name "LeMarche". Our next trip will be Octobre 30th for the Acquaoagna truffle festival and UNESCO protected Urbino with its rich cultural heritage.
