What's Abano Terme Like
The Romans discovered the natural hot springs at Abano Terme, where the waters can reach temperatures up to 176 degrees Fahrenheit. The Roman baths were destroyed in the dark ages, but they were rebuilt during the Renaissance when Abano Terme came under the control of Venice. The hot springs are still Abano Terme's main attraction, but there are also some destinations for art and history lovers like Abano Terme's cathedral, the Duomo di San Lorenzo, which is notable for its 14th century bell tower. Abano Terme's tree-lined streets are ideal for a peaceful stroll past the many grand hotels built in the 19th century like the former Grand Hotel Orologio. The town also has many boutiques and cafes for travelers who want to leave the spas for a little shopping therapy. Travelers can find the origins of the hot springs in the lovely Montirone park, although that source for the springs is no longer active. Nearby is the Pinacoteca museum, which offers free admission to view works by Il Moretto da Brescia, Jacopo Palma il Giovane, and Guido Reni.
Getting Along With the Locals in Abano Terme
Many Abano Terme spas and hotels offer fangotherapy, a unique mud bath technique perfected by the Romans. Travelers who indulge in this treatment will be encased in the "fango," which is a mixture of mud and algae that ages for two months in special tanks that are placed in the hot springs. Fangotherapy only lasts for about 20 minutes, but proponents say the treatment rejuvenates the body, especially aching joints.In fact, many Italians regularly receive fangotherapy as part of their national health care. Fangotherapy is not typically included in spa packages, so travelers might want to save some extra money for the treatment by booking a discounted hotel room. Abano Terme hotels can run to high prices, but Hotels.com offers many high-quality rooms at discounted rates. Travelers can refine their search results based on price, which makes the website ideal for both travelers on a budget and those searching for luxurious accommodations. Hotels.com also offers a free smartphone app that features mobile exclusive discounts of up to 50 percent. The app also allows travelers to keep their reservations on their phone, so there are no more worries about losing the all-important paperwork on the journey to Abano Terme.
