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.
