Situated between the provinces of Forlì-Cesena, Arezzo and Florence, this park has always been an unspoilt and almost mystical place, which over the centuries has inspired both artists and saints, from Dante to Saint Francis.
In 2017 the Sasso Fratino Nature Reserve and the park’s century-old beech woods were included in UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
Whether you decide to explore it on foot or by bike, every season will leave you yearning for more.
Among the 15 Visit Centres there is one, in Bagno di Romagna, that focuses on the Geology and thermal waters of Bagno di Romagna.
At Grand Hotel Terme Roseo, set in the ancient Biozzi Palace, you can soak in bicarbonate-alkaline-sulphurous hyperthermal waters at 45° or enjoy the Wellness Centre, where you will find a thermal pool at 37° with 46 hot tubs and jets, thermal cave, underwater sunbeds and chromotherapy.
The many treatments to try out include: grapeseed oil or aromatherapy massages, ayurvedic massages for muscle tension relief, bioenergetic-antistress massages, decontracting massages, as well as Lomi Lomi or mud massages. You can even book the hot tub for yourself!
The pool is open all-day until after dinner time on some days while the spa is open all-day every day until dinner time.
Hotel delle Terme Santa Agnese has its own thermal spring, which was already known in Roman times. Here the Grand Duke of Tuscany Leopold II “made these baths public and comfortable”.
You can enjoy its natural caves, thermal pools with hot tubs and jets, balneotherapy or Kneipp circuits.
After a hike, there is nothing better than one of these treatments: energising chocolate or relaxing honey massages, de-stress massages with essential oils, and the spa treatment programme (you can choose between natural and sports wellness).
In order to enjoy its hyperthermal water (natural spring temperature above 45°) to the fullest, the Ròseo Euroterme Wellness Resort boasts both an indoor and an outdoor swimming pool with waterfalls and a brand-new spa.
At the end of a hike there is nothing better than relaxing with at least one of these massages: a relaxing shiatsu massage in thermal water, a bio thai sport active massage aimed at decontracting body muscles or a clay wrap to relieve muscle tension.
Before going to bed, don’t forget to take a last dive into the swimming pool, the perfect ending to a day of hiking. Swimming pool and SPA are open all-day every day until after dinner time.
