  • 1. Fiera Internazionale del Tartufo Bianco

    From early October to mid- or late November, Alba hosts an internationally famous truffle fair. Merchants, chefs, and other aficionados of this pungent yet delicious fungus come from all over the world to buy and taste white truffles at the height of their season. The first Sunday of October sees the Palio degli Asini. a hilarious donkey race, a lampoon of Asti's eminently serious horse race. Tickets to watch this competition between Alba's districts, with riders dressed in medieval garb astride their stubborn beasts, can be hard to get; they go on sale in September. Hotel and restaurant reservations for October and November should be made well in advance.

  • 5. Palio di Asti

    September is a month of fairs and celebrations in Asti, and this horse race that runs through the streets of town is the highlight. First mentioned in 1275, this annual event has been going strong ever since. After an elaborate procession in period costumes, nine horses and jockeys representing different sections of town vie for the honor of claiming the palio, a symbolic flag of victory. The race happens on a Sunday at the beginning of September each year.
