Ente Turismo Langhe Monferrato Roero organises guided tours in the historic centre of Alba with the help of experienced and certified tour guides. A walk through art, culture, traditions and curiosities: all in one tour. In the Alba of “The 23 Days of the City of Alba”, there will be stories and tales linked to the partisan struggle and to Beppe Fenoglio, a renowned local writer, as well as facts and anecdotes about the birth of the International Alba White Truffle Fair and The Palio of the Donkeys.
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 (outside), the tour of Alba’s historic centre will include the most important buildings of this city of Roman origin. On foot, you will discover the exterior of Casa Do with its terracotta frieze, the complex 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 can admire the works of Macrino d’Alba and Barnaba da Modena.
