Truffles are a highly prized mushroom that grow beneath the ground and is a significant trademark of Istria and Istrian people. In honour of this extraordinary culinary gem, each year during September and October, the Truffle Days festival is organised. The Istrian truffle is one of the most prestigious in the world. Ideally, it is at its best just picked, within the original environment of small inns and renowned restaurants. Finesse and uniqueness of the flavour of truffles have long been a real fantasy for gourmets. If you want to reveal the true richness of truffles, come to Istria and attend the Truffle Days festival.
