    Travel & Transfers

    To start your route in Alba, we recommend you to get to Turin Airport, then you can take a bus to the city and a direct train to Alba.  However, if you want a private transfer from the airport to Alba, we can coordinate it at an additional cost.

    It is also possible to reach Milan's Linate Airport and take a train to Alba via Turin.

    When you finish your trip, we will take you from your place of accommodation to Alba train station. From there, you can take a direct train to Turin. Another option is to get to Linate Airport in Milan, for this you will have to take a direct train from Turin.

    FAQs

    Absolutely! Each traveller has included 1 piece of luggage that we will transfer between your accommodations. It's important that this piece of luggage meets the following criterias:

    • Maximum weight of 45 lbs (20 kg).
    • Must be only 1 piece of luggage without any attachments or accessories.
    • Should not contain valuables, fragile items, food or medications.
    • Must be correctly identified (booking reference of your trip and the full name of the trip holder).

    The approximate luggage delivery time will be at 4:00 PM.

    To be able to enjoy and make the most of this holiday, you must be in very good physical condition and feel comfortable walking on terrain with considerable ascents and descents.

    We suggest you book once you have decided your travel dates to ensure availability. Please note that the months with the highest demand are May, September and October.

    The most important thing is that you bring everything you need to make yourself comfortable. For example, comfortable boots, windbreaker and waterproof jacket, and walking stick as additional support for some ascents and descents.

    A backpack to carry during the day your cap, sunglasses and sun protection.

    May, September and October are the best months to travel, however, it is good to keep in mind that they are the ones that fill up the fastest.

    July and August are also excellent months, because although in other areas of Italy the temperature rises quite a bit, this region is very pleasant to walk through during the summer.

    The administration was good before our trip and our questions were answered quickly. The accommodation was also good. We had no problems with the baggage transfer too.
    Our group of 5 had a really great experience with orbis ways. Our contact person was helpful via email and via phone. Great accommodations and each host was helpful and generous with kindness.
    I travelled last week to Madeira with Orbis Ways and it has been an amazing experience. Accommodations were exceptional, and everything was explained very well, apart from that the Island is amazing, must be seen at least once in a lifetime. Dinners were very good, with local fresh homemade food! Very recomending!!!
    Excellent trip. Excellent communication with Orbis. Lovely accommodations. Luggage transfer was always done well and the overall trip was excellent. I cannot wait to do another walk in 2023 and will use Orbis ways 100%.
    Few days ago I finished Camino Francés. Orbis Ways planned the trip for me, arranged my routes and accommodations as well as luggage transfers. Everything went smoothly from the beginning in St Jean Pied du Port until the end in Santiago. Rooms with private bathrooms that they booked for me were comfortable and clean and luggage transfers underwent without mistakes. My daily routes were well planned. In 34 days I had only two problematic situations with accommodations and their 24 hours assistance team solved them in few minutes. I enjoyed every minute of my Way. I am planning to return and do some other route - Norte and Portugués gor sure. Orbis Ways will be my choice again.
    I did the wonderful walking holiday trip of 8 days Mont Blanc...the experience was incredible, from the beginning everything chosen in the dossier was beyond expectations, providing all the necessary information.I am very grateful for the wonderful and detailed attention of Jhonay. Also the accommodations chosen were very comfortable!I have no doubt that I will repeat as soon as I can, the routes are spectacular!
    Orbisways did an outstanding job of planning our trip along the Camino de Santiago. The provided voucher provided excellent information, the accommodations were awesome, never had any confusion regarding travel details and the staff I worked with prior to our trip were kind and very efficient. I highly recommend OrbisWays and will definitely be traveling with them again!!
