“Easy to get around - on foot”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Stone paved streets and plenty of pedestrian walking areas - Alba is small enough that you can easily visit the entire centro storico in 45 minutes or so.

“Main street Alba”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

This is Alba's main street in the old town. It basically crosses the old city in two. From the street you can basically explore the city. Many shops, bakeries, cafés, cellars, can be found here. You can start at the piazza and walk all way down until the end, where you can sit for a cup of coffee or an Italian gelato. Enjoy.

“Great little town”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

I must confess - I do love shopping in Alba! It has just the right size and everything is accessible by walking. Lots of lovely bars to stop and good restaurant to lunch.
