Visit the Alba Truffle festival from October 12th. to December 8th. 2024

The International White Truffle Fair of Alba (Fiera Internazionale del Tartufo Bianco d'Alba) is one of the most renowned truffle festivals in the world. It takes place in Alba, just 40 minutes drive from our Villa Robini. This festival is a celebration of the prized white truffle, a rare and aromatic delicacy found in the region's woodlands.

The Truffle festival typically runs from  October to December, which is the peak of the truffle season. During this time, Alba becomes a hub for truffle enthusiasts, foodies, and tourists from around the globe who come to experience the unique flavors and cultural significance of this exquisite fungus.
