  • Try fresh pasta – there are three pasta shops in Acqui that are selling daily made fresh pasta. freshPasta
  • Try a Gelato!
  • Take a stroll through the town on a summers evening.
  • Visit Piazza Bollente and marvel at the 70 C water that has been running on this Piazza before the Romans settled here.PiazzaBollenteAtNight
  • Visit the Roman Acqueduct by night.
  • Take Aperitivo or Apericena! We recommend Fonte del Vino on Piazza Bollente.
  • Go out to a Michelin starred restaurant – we have one in town called iCaffi. We can even drop you off and bring you home.
  • Enjoy the many free concerts in Acqui all summer long.
  • Go Outlet design shopping in Serravalle Scrivia – 45 minutes from Verdmont. Latest Italian fashion at rock bottom prices not to be missed.Serravalle
  • On a hot summer day – there are plenty of them – bathe in the sparkling Bormida river – that carries fresh water from the Alps.MelazzoRiver
  • Go to a “Festa” – Italians love a good party – These are posted on the main streets and will always be in Acqui or close villages, they include food, wine and music.
  • Visit a hilltop village, we suggest Denice or Roccaverano.
  • Take a stroll through the Unesco listed vines, starting from Verdmont. We have trail maps.
  • Pamper yourself and spend a day at the Roman spa.
