Last Night in Piemonte


After our afternoon adventures, we stopped briefly at the B&B to change for dinner. We were back in town by six, and split up from Fiona and Steve to take a walk. We spent the next two hours enjoying our last evening in Acqui Terme. We walked around the whole town again, feeling a little sad about our stay coming to an end. It is truly one of our favorite towns in Italy. We have found it to be free of tourists, charming, sophisticated, with everything one needs. There are great shops, cafes and restaurants, and of course the food and wine are wonderful.






After our walk, we sat in a café with our usual wine and a latte, and a plate of snacks, just soaking up the scene, and feeling like we didn’t want to leave. We know we will be back.


We met Fiona and Steve and walked to Ristorante San Guido for dinner. The friendly owner brought wine, and water.

I had large ravioli with butter and sage, and a pork cutlet Milanese. Brad had seafood ravioli and boccocino di vitello in Barbera. We looked back on our week and the magic of Piemonte, and looked ahead to our last five days in Bologna.
