Abano Terme, Montegrotto Terme, Battaglia Terme and Galzignano Terne – these are the four major spa resorts in the Euganean hills. They all enjoy a good reputation in Europe and are the destination of numerous spa holidaymakers, the chronically ill and athletes looking for relaxation. They hope for adequate relief from their pain through the healing water.
