City of Alba
Alba walking tour

A walk through art, culture, traditions and trivia: all in one tour!

A guided tour in the Unesco Creative City of Gastronomy, starting from the cathedral of San Lorenzo, which houses the precious Renaissance choir by Bernardino Fossati da Codogno, to the Romanesque-Gothic church of San Domenico, the tour of Alba‘s old town will include the most important buildings of the city of Roman origin.

On foot, wandering through the charming streets of the old town, you can discover the exterior of Casa Do with its terracotta frieze, the building and the Baroque church of La Maddalena, Via Cavour with the Loggia dei Mercanti, passing through Piazza Pertinace with its Roman excavations and the church of San Giovanni, where you will be able to admire the works by Macrino d’Alba and Barnaba from Modena.

There are plenty of reasons to visit Alba.

In the historic Alba echoing “The 23 days of the city of Alba“, there will be no lack of stories and tales tied to the partisan struggle, a city with a gold medal for military valour, taken from the most beautiful pages written by Beppe Fenoglio.

City of Alba

Alba is a city nestled in the hills of southern Piedmont, an ideal centre between the Mediterranean Sea and the mountain range of the Alps; the beating heart in the middle of the Langhe, Alba is surrounded by an extraordinary landscape rich in nature, vineyards, hazelnut groves and woods with unique colours; a landscape shaped by humans, rich in history, traditions, picturesque villages, castles and bell towers.
