This is a very nice urban setting with a mix od medieval buildings and more recent, all nice blending together. It is rather small and it can be walked comfortably since it is mostly pedestrian traffic only. Great abundance of very good bars and restaurants

Alba’s historic center offers a great selection of wine bars and specialty shops for food (truffles, pasta, specialty salumi, local cheese, and so on). Unlike other Italian city centers, this is not a tourist trap. Locals (of which I am one 6-months out of the...More

Beautiful Centro Storico, one of many in Italy. It has all attributes that most of the prominent Italian Centro Storicos have. There is a great, preserved architecture, nice urban layout, many high fashion boutiques, as well as many small, charming cafés, churches, etc. You could...More

Alba is a flat unassuming orderly little town, with a few piazzas and many little interesting streets. There are many churches and Towers to visit, even a carousel of elaborately designed and painted horses for children to ride, and many shops selling wines and local...More

Alba is a great town--flat for a change, as it's situated in a VALLEY, in contrast to the plethora of HILL TOWNS. Great piazzas, gorgeous churches, nice shopping, and of course lots of restaurants and gelaterias. Great Truffle store. Etc.

Shoppers and eaters will be in heaven on these beautiful meandering vias. Great people watching. Wish I was there at night as it must feel magical. Gorgeous cathedrals as well.

Wandering the shopping streets of Alba was probably one of our favorite experiences in Piedmont . Lovely Churches to visit and restaurants, wine, truffle and gelato stores to enjoy. So much to take in.

This is a very small restaurant in a small village bit well worth the effort of getting there. Something as simple as a tomato salad with mozzarella had me making very satisfied noises. My husband had the butter and sage ravioli - a standard dish...More
