On the last weekend of May, flowers, plants, and gardens in bloom in the city of hot springs.
Acqui Terme will be decked out for celebrating springtime and the month that is the "Reign of Flowers." On the weekend of May 25 and 26, the entire city will be involved in a series of cultural and gastronomic events that are also tied to flowers and plants. This isn't just a plant market, but there will also be workshops for flower arrangments, book presentations for literary works connected with flowers and gardening, planting, and an evening of meditation with the calming music of the Chinese Gong instrument in the bird garden of the Paleologi Castle.
And there's more: enjoy guided visits to the garden in Villa Ottolenghi, theatrical shows, flower workshops with children, and many occasions for pairing flowers with a good bottle of wine and plate of food. An aperitivo will be held amongst the flowers at the Regional Wine Shop of Acqui Terme, Teaciok will host a tea and infusion tasting, and the Pro Loco association of Ovrano will hold a great dinner.
Flowers & Food is the fixed end-of-May event that celebrates the gift of plants and flowers paired with food and drink.
