While in the scenic spa resort of Acqui Terme, make sure to stop by La Bollente, one of the town's centerpieces. Built in 1870 and designed to resemble a small pavilion, the fountain in the center of the old town constantly produces thermal water that's beneficial to drink or inhale the vapors. Just bear in mind that the water comes out of the fountain at a temperature of about 75 C (167 F) and it can cause burns if you touch it before it cools down. The piazza in front of the fountain is a great place to soak in the atmosphere of the town, have a meal, or enjoy the sight of steaming vapors rising from the fountain on a cool night. Put La Bollente into our Acqui Terme vacation route planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Acqui Terme.

  • Reference point for visiting the city of Acqui. The old town is very nice, but it is impossible not to cross it without being in front of the hot, whose visit is pleasant, especially winter. Usually around it there gathers a group of people taking advantage of its fumes, do not lose anyway occasion to be together. It is part of the company's daily Acqui Terme; I consider it a wonder worth visiting.

  • The square of the boiling is simply magical. In winter the warmth of the fumes of thermal wrap and warm you with their distinctive and healthful flavor. The illuminated square is the perfect frame for the vital and unique fountain. Not to be missed
  • The boiling, the symbol of Acqui Terme, is a special structure built at the end of ' 800 by which thermal water at 74.5° c. A must visit, perhaps in the evening to see it lit and observe it in all its glory. The water (which you can also drink), known since Roman times for its healing properties, is the same one used for spa treatments: guests stop and greet among the sulphurous fumes. Located in the small square of the same name, is surrounded by bars and restaurants, all very characteristic, some almost hidden in the small lanes that connect the square to the area of pisterna, where there is the outdoor theatre (Piazza della Conciliazione).
