Abano Terme – places to visit in Venice area

September 15, 2012

If you get to Venice in Italy and have one day to spare, than you should know that close by, some 25 km away, there is a small town, Abano Terme. Just as the name suggests, Abano Terme is a place full of spas with natural thermal waters. It is a great way to spend a day at the spa and enjoy the benefits nature has to give you – a naturally relaxed and same time reinforced body system.

And who else would know better about the benefits of the thermal waters than Italy’s ancient inhabitants: the Romans. For those who know little about the Roman civilization, I can say that life hasn’t change that much in the last 2000 years. The few differences between nowadays and the life Romans had are from a technological advancement point of view.

Since ancient times the Romans have been using baths with thermal waters, and wherever the Roman empire pushed for new territories, they made sure they left such a lifestyle trace behind. We can find for example such places even in England since the Romans were there – today’s city of Baths, located between London and Bristol is such a live testimony.

Back to Abano Terme, spas are open all year long welcoming visitors from all over. Should you want to spend a night or more here, you should know there is available a great offer of hotels in Abano Terme at
