Holiday in Abano Terme
The long history of the Terme di Abano and Montegrotto is rooted in the Euganean people and the ancient cult of Aponus, god of thermal waters and curative powers. Just as two thousand years ago, today these wellness areas immersed in the refreshing green of the Euganean Hills are the ideal destination for health and relaxation, thanks to the 240 hot spring pools, specialised care centres and modern facilities dedicated to mud and balneotherapy treatments.
The Euganean Hills will please those who enjoy contact with nature. Forests, vineyards, olive orchards and open fields are well connected by an ample network of trails for walking, biking or even horse riding. A 64 km cycle path passes the Venetian villas and castles, sanctuaries, abbeys, walled cities and fortresses leading to the Terme Euganee.
During your holiday in Abano Terme, you must visit the extraordinary International Mask Museum "Amleto and Donato Sartori". One of a kind, the museum exhibits prestigious works by Amleto Sartori and his son Donato, internationally renowned artists, mask makers for theatre and Commedia dell'Arte. Two important spiritual centres stand at the entrance to Abano: the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Salute di Monteortone and the Benedictine Monastery on the hills of San Daniele.
Remember, too, that Abano Terme has traditional Venetian cuisine. A land rich in culinary delicacies, you can try bigoli pasta with duck, Venetian sea cod, guinea fowl with pevarada sauce and radicchio with sopressata salami.
Wellness spas, nature walks, cultural and food-and-wine tours all make Abano Terme ideal for those who want a bit of everything in their holiday.
