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.

I loved loved loved Alba! Stay in the old town & enjoy the complete vibe the town has to offer. The food is the best in Italy & wine being in the middle of the Piedemonte wine district is sensational.

As one of the main pedestrian streets in Alba, everybody seems to end up walking down it. Lots of bars, cafe, restaurants, stores selling local products. spent most of our time in Alba here.
