Spa Italy: The Euganean hills

Thermal recreational paradise near Padua

The Terme Euganee with their principal towns Battaglia Terme, Galzignano Terme, Montegrotto Terme and Abano Terme in Italy is an important European thermal area. With more than 200 thermal pools in the whole region, those in need of R&R, the sick and athletes have been treated since ancient times and take advantage of the wellness programme, including the beautiful nature surrounding the Euganean hills, to relax and reenergise. In addition to the thermal springs, the region offers many attractive running, biking and walking trails and several golf courses for its guests and plenty of activities in the fresh air.

Ancient spa in Italy

Already in the 15th century BC the resident Eugane knew of the healing powers of warm water sources. Places such as Abano Terme take their name from the god Aponus who was the god of the healing powers of water. The numerous excavations of Roman villas and bath houses show that the Romans also appreciated the luxury of healing springs and the Venetians built magnificent palaces and villas around the thermal spas in the Euganean hills as well. An international audience of greater magnitude has been interested in the Terme Euganee since the Habsburgs, who promoted the region and made it well known. Today, the Terme Euganee is the best-known spa in Italy and is also well known abroad.

Spa Italy: The healing power of water

The four thermal towns Galzignano Terme, Montegrotto Terme, Battaglia Terme and Abano Terme are  places in Italy where rheumatic and arthritis patients and athletes can recover. The volcanic activity in the Euganean hills ensures that water mixed with salts and minerals comes up to the surface and bubbles in different baths. The 38 degrees warm water is used for extensive rehabilitation and treatment therapies. But not only sick and injured athletes stay here in the region. The Euganean hills also provide a perfect recreational area for the city population of Padua to flee from their hectic schedules.

The recreation area of the Euganean hills, together with its thermal spas, thus forms the finest and largest spa in Italy. The region and its spa in Italy are also definitely worth a visit for those who are not heading to the region for treatment.
