TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Langhe Alba
On Friday we headed for sant Pierre in the alps, hoping to spend 3 days visiting Parco Gran Paradiso and viewing the mountains. But the fates intervened. Firstly, our B&B B Barberi had the kindest, most helpful host who spent much time dialoging with me through the I translate app, searching for weather forecasts and suggesting itineraries that were not too demanding. But, alas, she could not change the weather, nor the hard as a rock mattress that failed to bring sleep. So, with reluctance, we moved on. Hotel Langhe, set in a green area just on the fringe of the old Roman city of Alba suited fine for 2 days, enabling us to visit the town, tour the extensive Roman ruins, and, for me to get a haircut.

... well known for its local dishes, and enjoyed our meal immensely. We savored a bottle of Barbera d'Alba and shared three dishes - an antipasti of carne crude, a first course of the plin, and a third course of local fish with roasted vegetables. (Side note: one thing we discovered is that Piemonte lacked vegetables on their menu, at least, the places we went to). We finished with espresso, of course, and instead of cookies ...
Ciao , well after a lovely week in Turin, feeling very righteous and almost wanting to join the faith, from our Holy Shroud visit, we packed up Ronaldo and headed south.
Our next experience was to be in the Langhe wine country, an hour or so from Turin. Bit like popping "down south" to Marg's. The Langhe is a dedicated certified wine region for Barolo wine, made exclusively 100% from Nebbiolo grapes. Barolo is very highly ...
... The cafes are so beautiful they are like mini- Versailles palaces. There are so many of them, each one more glittering than the last.

Ciao for now - R&N xx
... we found this amazing local Pizza place, it one that the locals use, so there was no English going on at all. But we got 2 medium Pizza's for euros 7, can't moan about that, and we couldn't even eat it all.
The following morning we had arranged to see the The Shroud of Turin, due to circumstances this did not happen, but we went off to our next destination, Capena Rome.
Turin is one of those surprising places you might go to thinking "I'll just stay the night here there isn’t too much to see." And you come out thinking “Wow, I definitely should have stayed here longer, there’s a lot I wish I could have seen.”
I got to Turin late Wednesday afternoon and made it to my hostel or rather Tomato Backpacker’s Hotel (if anyone’s looking for a slightly nicer hostel that still ...
