Truffle hunt and Barolo wine tasting

12 reviews
Italy’s Piedmont region is known as a gastronomic capital. On this private tour, you won’t just get to taste some of its most famous culinary products—you’ll go behind-the-scenes and see how they’re produced. First, join a truffle hunter and his dog on a walk, and see if you unearth any treasures. Then, transfer to a family-run winery, where you’ll learn how wine is made and enjoy samples of Barolo.

This simply speaking is nothing else but an archeological tour. Do not expect the exceptional like the necropolis in Naples for example. No labyrinth, no skulls, no skeletons and no creepy surroundings. Exceptional guide who knows everything. 10 out of 10 for him. To me it is an interesting tourist attraction, however, rather invest your precious time to learn about the different truffles and wines.

We were very exited to be able to do the Underground Alba Tour. Alas the tour was only in Italian and a written hand out of a few pages was given to the English speaking guest. We were a group of 14 of which 5 spoke English. The guide was very enthusiastic and surely did a very good job in explaining but of course we did not understand a word. The written pages were very scant compared to the 2 hour tour that was given. Such a shame for such a worthy subject. Considering the cost it definitely was not value.

Fascinating look as some of the excavations that have been done of Roman and more recent ruins. Led by a graduate student or archeologist, but only in Italian. The brochure they hand out is available in English and has good detail.

We missed the tour (the fact that it is only in Italian doesn't bother us), but we had the chance to visit the excavations underneath the cathedral, and they were spectacular. Well presented!
