Travel Agenda: Norcia's truffle harvest; Vue Cinema's Night of Adventure; Amsterdam's Dreams of Nature exhibition; Croatia's music festivals


Tomorrow: In Italy, the Umbrian town of Norcia stages its annual truffle harvest (also next weekend). The "Nero Norcia" festival sees food producers and gourmets gather in the town's medieval squares to sample the prized delicacy and celebrate other regional foods such as salami, cheese and wine (neronorcia.it).

This Week: In London, the Vue Cinema in Leicester Square hosts a "Night of Adventure" on Monday: 10 intrepid explorers take to the stage to regale the audience with tales of travel in far-flung places. The charity event is run by Hope and Homes for Children; tickets £20 (hopeandhomes.org).

In Amsterdam, the Dreams of Nature exhibition opens on Friday at the Van Gogh museum. It will explore the use of symbolism in the works of artists such as Kandinsky, Monet, Gauguin and Munch until September (vangoghmuseum.nl).

In The Diary: In Croatia, two music festivals migrate south from their former home in Petrcane, down the Adriatic, to Tisno this summer. Joint tickets to the Garden Festival (4-11 July) and the Electric Elephant (12-16 July) cost £150, which includes entrance but not flights and accommodation (thegardenfestival.eu).
