Upon arrival in the morning, meet your guide to start your walking tour of Alba, the capital of the Langhe region. Its lively and elegant medieval town center, together with its medieval towers and the sweet scent of chocolate pervading the air, which will accompany you throughout your visit, will captivate you! However, Alba is best-known for its white truffles, which attract tourists and food connoisseurs from all over the world. The tour will start from the historic center, which dates back to the Neolithic period and is characterized by a Roman city planning and medieval monuments, and will continue among the various churches scattered throughout the city and other important historic Renaissance and Baroque buildings.

Lunch in a typical piedmontese restaurant.

After lunch truffle hunt excursion accompanied by the Trifulau (expert truffle hunter) and his faithful, specially trained dog amongst the natural truffle grounds of Langhe to discover the characteristics of truffles and how to find them. Going into the woods in search of truffles, no matter whether black or white, is certainly one of the most exciting and intense experiences that Langhe territories can offer you. It is called Truffle Hunt Simulation as the truffles are hidden before the search takes place. However, since the search is carried out in natural truffle-grounds (that is places where truffles grow naturally), you might actually find truffles which hadn’t been hidden for the occasion, but which have naturally matured.
Afterwards set off for a panoramic tour through Langhe vineyard hills, the area recently added to the list of World Heritage Sites.
