  • Long tail coming, difficult parking; I'll go into in town, planning to find something like the historic towns of Tuscany, instead I remain disappointed. Starting from the river side, walking Via Cavour, modern and historical palaces with alternating, then the low arcades as in other towns of the Piem. and Lombardy. Away with bottlenecks, VIb improbable paving restored, street furniture not in tune, little cafes. On the right is San Giovanni which was nice before, appeared high rises 70 years to define half perimeter. The center square has undergone a redesign just rational. Continue to piazza Risorgimento, where the town and the Cathedral, the latter a bit modified and sprporzionato than the piazza, gazebo and invasive. Via Vittorio Emanuele alternates historic buildings to other modern, even here local tables of invasive, mostly clothing stores without special cues. The old town ends with large Ferrero but ugly ugly. Grey ceramic flooring, with some colored tiles and showy, an equestrian monument that for location, size and style is inappropriate, then a rusty iron cage. The square is closed by a fountain that has nothing to do. In essence, the square seems those little squares that occasionally are found in the outskirts of metropolis. In a chaotic day, just about an hour to see everything. A disappointment.

  • Town Center a little too modern with several homes with shutters on the course. Nice shops but nothing particular. Great truffle and chocolate in the air ...

  • Alba! Cosy city, all walking distance. Nice shops, culinary restaurants. Antiquity radiates from there. Worth a visit!
