Italy is the perfect setting for a romantic spa vacation…breathtaking landscapes, unique spa experiences, delicious food and wine. The northern regions are best known for healing thermal spas, mainly situated along the volcanic highlands. These spas specialize in traditional thalassotherapy (using marine-derived elements such as seaweed). For couples, especially honeymooners, discover the enchantment of Romantic Spas in Italy.
