Welcome to the land of beauty, wine and great food

let me guide you through this fascinating place in northern Italy

Car hire with driver

I've been a private driver in Alba for a long time. I will pick you up where arranged and guide you to your destination. I also offer the usual airport transfer service from Nice's airport in France and Turin or Milan towards Alba, Langhe and Roero as well as the rest of northern Italy. I own two different cars for both luxury transfers and group travels for up to 7 passengers at the time.

I know Alba and its surroundings like the back of my hand.

CULTURAL BORDERS

In Italy we're always eager to meet new people and we try our best to put others at ease. However, sometimes it can be hard to communicate with locals in a country where you don’t speak the language.

Here, in Italy, we rely on direct communication much more than elsewhere so the Internet may not be of great help all the time while you're here. That’s our culture of warmth and helpfulness. If you don't know our region and don't speak Italian I can help you get what you hope from your trip to Alba and its surroundings nevertheless. You will enjoy the lovely Langhe and Roero to their fullest.

LOCAL EXPERIENCE

Having been a private driver for a long time made me build bonds with professionals of all kinds in tourism and accommodation throughout this region. I have no partnership with any of them and will solely recommend the best options for your wishes. I offer to schedule and make arrangements for all you want to include in your Italian vacation and drive you to each place. You will confirm the program and I will guide you stop by stop.

You’re looking for a real restaurant showing you how to cook Piedmontese food? Name the town you prefer or let me recommend one, I will arrange a workshop with the best cooks available, and ask them to suit your needs for me. Moreover I know people and dairies who produce our great cheese traditionally, pastrymakers, wine producers that could arrange private tasting parties, and also great cooks that don’t run restaurants and locals who can show and involve you in our traditions, as you see fit. We can't wait to see you in Alba!

FOREIGNERS EXPECTATIONS

When you met so many travelers over the years and took them to Alba, Barolo, La Morra, Novello and so on you know exactly what they wish and what they expect. When you collected them from their activities as many times though, you also know what they would have liked better after they tell you their experience. That’s what I do now. As a caring local and your driver, I will guide you to your best Italian experience and spare you boredom and disappointment.

RENTING A CAR IS NECESSARY

When you arrive in Alba you soon realize you’ll have to get around by car, as any other town is fairly far from you and public transportation means outside the city center is almost nonexistent. Barolo, Monforte and La Morra are all located up in the hills. The same goes for Grinzane, Novello, Barbaresco or Cherasco. Bossolasco and Niella, same story. Alba is about 10 miles away from the nearest ones and considerably farther from the rest of them. Do not learn it when you get here, if you want to enjoy this land hiring a car with a driver ahead of time is really what you need.

UNESCO

You haven’t been in Langhe unless you visit all these towns and their surroundings, UNESCO treasures. Many less known beauties are yet to be discovered by UNESCO and I can lead you to all of them in person.

Your destination, my land

Alba is a cozy little town in the middle of wonderland where you can enjoy life to a different level. Slow-paced, natural and traditional, with its unique food and awesome wine, you’ll love your time here. I help tourists and workers get what they want from their travel to this land. Having worked in the field for countless years I no longer simply take people where they need, pick them up from Turin’s or Nice’s airport then wave them goodbye. I can do much better and I take pleasure in this. I will be your personal driver and tour operator in Piedmont.
