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.

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.

The Alba center is a lovely place to stroll, to admire the architecture and to enjoy an "aperitivo".
