Wellness at the Roman SPA: Montegrotto Terme Resort

We are in Montegrotto at the Grand Hotel Terme, a very famous SPA centre in the north of Italy, in the region Veneto. The SPA water flows down from Lessini mountains, it travels beneath the mountains at a depth of 3000 mt for almost 100 km, where it warms and acquires its properties. Then it emerges in the area of Montegrotto and it can be used for SPA and mud treatments!
