Just a few minutes outside of Alba, this castle and the grounds were very well maintained. A perfect place to have a picnic and take in the vineyards and very quaint town below the castle.

Lovely castle with lots of history and a Michelin stared restaurant. The audioguides are quite informative and the views from the castle's terrace and the rooms is lovely. Lots of steps - not appropriate for elderly

We actually found this accidentally, and then saw it was in all the travel guides. Great museum, food, shopping, tasting, beautiful rounds. Free parking in several places nearby.

Is one star enough? The food and service here are unparalleled and the dining room as special as it gets. I make it a point to eat here whenever I am in the Langhe.

Quite a steep walk up to the Castello, but the views are stunning when you get there. Lovely gardens, even mid September. A wedding was underway whilst we were there. A small cafe is at the base of the ramp for refreshments and parking is...More
