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.

The tour in the scheduled dates is led in italian but we give you written english translation. if you want it's possibile to book a private guide led in english or in french in other dates but the booking in advance is mandatory.

Maybe a great tour but only in Italian language
Jul. 2018
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 at the archeology.

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.

Missed the tour, still was worthwhile
Jul. 2016
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!

Interesting history under your feet

By chance we picked up a brochure for these tours at lunch last Tuesday. Tours are only in Italian (unless you book a group in advance) but there is a detailed handout in English. Each tour will visit 3 of the 32 archaeological sites around Alba's old town.

Disappointing
Oct. 2015
This tour was one of the reasons we booked a stay in Alba. Unfortunately, we were never told that there were no English-speaking tours available and we ended up on an Italian-language tour. We were given English handouts so that we could follow along but they were not in the order of the tour so we were never sure what we were seeing. Had we known the language issue, we would have skipped the Tour especially since the price was fairly high. It's too bad because the ruins are interesting and all of the staff were friendly and enthusiastic. Better communication would have gone a long way to averting our disappointment.

Under ground, not only for truffles
Oct. 2015 • Couples
Nice initiative of a group of young local archeologist that is helping in restoring and preserving a significant portion of Alba's history. Itinerary varies by date (check web site); very interesting view of the Roman as well as the Middleage city. Worth a late afternoon walk.

Limited Days and Times
May 2015 • Couples
We discovered that a tour wasn't available during our three days in Alba. Be sure to check the days and times and book in advance. So what to do? We were able to tour the Duomo on our own and go down into the underground museum area to see some of the ruins and the displays. There were clear labels in English. No, it wasn't as good as taking the tour, but was still fascinating.
