Acqui Terme and Medieval Villages, a holiday in the footsteps of culture
You can visit Acqui Terme on a day-trip.
The city, the Alto Monferrato area’s largest, boasts the presence of numerous buildings of religious, historical and architectural interest.
Among the noteworthy churches in the area are the Church of San Francesco, The Santa Maria Assunta Cathedral, the Church of San Pietro and the Church of Sant’Antonio.
Buildings of non-religious interest aren’t lacking either: Piazza della Bollente Square, Town Hall and Robellini House equipped with a regional wineshop and the Civic Tower are great to visit. In the Pisterna area, you can find the Castle of Paleontology that houses a museum of Roman artefacts. In fact, the city of Acqui Terme dates back to that very same era.
If you have a few more days at your disposal, around the city lie several, picturesque villages that are definitely worth the visit: Roccaverano, Denice, Montechiaro Alta, Strevi and all of the wonderful routes distinguished as the 46 “Big Bench” sites situated all around Piedmont – the full list can be viewed on the site: bigbenchcommunityproject
