We stayed at the hotel Il Castelli in Alba last
November. It is a new hotel that is quite comfortable
and a very easy walk to the center of town where the
Truffle Festival will take place. There is no end to
the excellent restaurants in the area. Il Vicoletta is
excellent as is the trattoria, La Libera, in Alba. A
must is Dei Cacciatori in Albaretto della Torre but
reservations must be made well in advance. Another
upscale restaurant is the highly acclaimed Da Guido in
Costiglione d'Asti and reservations there too must be
made well in advance.

The truffle fair is held every Saturday during the month of October in Alba which is in the Region of Piemonte, Italy. Now is not too early to get room reservations. We liked the hotel Il Castelli in Alba. The food in this Region of Italy is outstanding. Restaurant reservations in the top places should be made very, very early as Alba draws large crowds for the festivities.
