  • Famous Spa Resorts in Europe

    Ever thought about combining wellness travel with sightseeing? Well, if you come to think of it, this is the idea that influenced most luxury hotels’ decision to open a spa center. But most people tend to forget that wellness traveling started thousands of years ago, when the Greeks and then the Romans constructed the first public baths. This is why only in Europe you can find some of this old school spa resorts, where natural resources, modern techniques and luxurious palaces create that unique, retro atmosphere, that seems to project you into a different era.

    Fonteverde, Italy

    As Romans were the first to make use of the thermal waters at a large scale, and began building public baths all over the Empire, let’s give their followers the lion’s share and start by presenting this elegant resort from Tuscany.
