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.

We travelled up to a small village in the hills and Sue and Phil had the degustation menu that included specialities of the region. Raw marinated veal, vegetables, ravioli in a light broth sauce, veal roast and chocolate pudding. All washed down with a local wine. We also tried the tiramisu which was very light. A fantastic meal.
... much caution, but it was done. We found a polizia and went to the station and thank goodness for google translate, we got the message across that we wanted to report stolen items! A plenty of forms a while later we walked from the station
and brightened our moods with the pizza we aimed for lunch ...
... be different but ewwww. So the 2 pizza's were €11.00 combined and the wine was €18.00 lol. So after this "delicious meal" it was time to walk it off and we went about discovering this little village which really is quite quaint and pretty. Time to get back to Fifi and head back to Perletto. Would we visit Alba again, unless Ferrero opened their doors for tours, I expect not. It was a day out though and a little bit more of Italy we have ...
