Livade Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 52 photos

Livade is a very small city in the plain of the Mirna river valley. It is 1 km north from the main road from Buje to Buzet while Motovun is 2 km south. Since year 2000, the company "Livade tartufi d.o.o;" has organized truffle days every week-end of October.

For more details, look at Truffle days

Livade is now well known for its truffle days that draw visitors from all over Europe. The white truffle exhibition and competition is held in the white tent shown on this picture.

The best truffles on exhibition are valuated and rewarded by experts. On the other side of the street is held an exhibition of other agricultural products of Istria, including the famous Istrian ham, Istria produced wines and agricultural material.
And in the mean time, Boris (VT Croisbeauty) is taking pictures ! For more on our mini VT meeting look at my travelogue Livade VT meeting

    Fascinating travelogues and tips! This has got to be the ultimate truffle page, with great explanations. I especially liked the Local Customs tips about searching for truffles in the woods. Good thing those dogs can understand the Istriot dialect, LOL.

    I found your explanations about the white truffles very interesting Jean-Louis. Alas I have not had the opportunity or pleasure to taste these special delicacies. Perhaps one day.

    Great aromatic page, Jean-Louis! Memories of our meeting and that fritaja with truffles - mmmm.... I'm contemplating some abracadabra with oysters and truffles from Livade for our New Year's Eve dinner.

    Quite an amazing page Jean-Louis!! I have heard a lot about truffles but have never even seen one, let alone smell, touch or taste one!! This was very educational for me!! Thank you.
