Discover Alba like a foodie! Our tour guide provides an engaging and informative walking tour of the town centre of Alba with five different food tastings along the way, which will exceed your lunch needs. Come hungry and curious!
From Piazza Garibaldi our walk takes you through the open-air market (when available) and it will end in Piazza Ferrero, including stops at some of the most important sights, such as Roman ruins, the Cathedral, baroque architectures and medieval towers. Hometown of the famous “Nutella” and worldwide known for the International White Truffle Fair, Alba is a wealth of stories and gems hidden to the hurried glance, which our tour guide will bring up to life.
Along the way enjoy a cheese tasting in a traditional shop which showcases selected cheese producers from the region and continue to an old-fashioned bakery to sample breadsticks or “grissini“. Later, sit in a gourmet take -away to savor two of the most traditional starters or “antipasti”.
In a truffle shop run by a family of truffle hunters, partake in a tasting of gourmet truffle products, including a 90% white truffle spread, salami and truffle cheese topped with truffle honey or olive oil. A pasta course (tajarin) or risotto is served with freshly shaved black truffles and a glass of wine.
Our selection of tastings continues in a nearby cozy restaurant where locals hang out to sample ravioli al plin or the specialty of the day. Make sure to save some room for the final hazelnut pastries and chocolate truffles.
Tastings order and recipes can change depending on availability.
