Sabato 19 Ottobre – Tour to Alba e Langhe (Piemonte)


Discover Alba, the Capital of the Langhe, which is known for its charming historic centre, picture postcard surroundings and excellent wines and food – Barolo reds, white truffles and many other delicacies.


Join us for a trip to the Italian Langhe (Piemonte) with its rolling hills covered in vineyards, with medieval hilltop towns and ancient castles perched on their peaks. In 2014, Langhe, along with Roero and Monferrato, became an UNESCO World Heritage Site for its cultural wine-growing landscapes.
