Spas in autumn 1 JPG


Among the new offers, besides massages, mud masks, and thermal baths, now there is also an original creation: the thermalpizza, made with bromine and iodine rich water, left to rise for 24 hours and baked in a wood oven. 

But this is not the only new thing this year.

This new thermal pizza can be found at the Grand Hotel Terme della Fratta (Fc), but at the Terme della Salvarola (Mo) the latest trend is zodiac massages, or treatments based on a person's date of birth.  At Riccione Terme (Rn) visitors can say goodbye to dry, flaccid skin with an extremely new body treatment made from hyaluronic acid, shea butter and of course a few drops of sulfur water (it's called Cremoso Elisir).  Not far from here, at Riminiterme, at the recently renovated spa, visitors can get regenerated under the waterfalls in the big bio-marine pool, surrounded by a very salty micro-climate in the original salt room.  And at the same time you can get a massage by professionals.


And there are even more surprises in the wide range of activities at the Spas.


In Emilia Romagna in fact, visitors can choose the most appropriate treatment among those offered by the 26 thermal spas, all of them very up to date in 19 different locations, from the hills of Parma to the sea of Rimini, from Salsomaggiore to Riccione, immersed in nature where you can find tranquility, harmony and interior peace.  So something more than a simple vacation in a nice place.
