    What to Expect from Alba City Tours? It worth it?

    Gastronomic Delights: Alba is known as the ‘capital of the white truffle’ and is also a key wine production region in Italy. You will likely have the opportunity to participate in a truffle hunt, guided by experienced truffle hunters and their dogs, followed by a tasting session. The tour usually also includes a visit to a local vineyard, where you can learn about the winemaking process and enjoy a wine tasting session, often paired with local delicacies.

    Historical Sites: Alba is a city with a rich history, and tours often include visits to important cultural sites, such as churches, historical buildings, and possibly the archaeological site underneath the Church of San Giuseppe.

    Scenic Beauty: The surrounding landscapes of Alba, with its rolling hills, vineyards, and rural charm, offer plenty of scenic views that you can enjoy during your tour.
