Naples has spa hotels in the city, on the waterfront and a little further out in neighbourhoods such as the historic coastal towns of Pozzuoli and Marechiaro, which was a haunt in the ‘60s for Hollywood stars in search of la dolce vita.
Naples’ spa hotels offer services of all kinds, ranging from all-natural Kneipp treatments to salt spas, as well as winning extras such as impressive water features and spectacular views across the Bay of Naples.
The pampering can continue in Naples even after you hang up your dressing gown and leave the spa. Follow up your treatments with walks along the seafront, enjoying classic coastal panoramas across to Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii as you stroll. Don’t forget to treat yourself to an ice cream along the way, as Naples is renowned for its excellent gelataria.
Other good spots in the city for post-treatment strolls include Parco Virgiliano on Posillipo Hill, where you can sit back and soak up stunning views from an elevated position. Parco di Capodimonte, home to the art-filled National Museum of Capodimonte, is another serene oasis in this typically buzzing city.
If you’re craving even more chill-out time, head for the thermal pools on the nearby island of Ischia, which sits in the bay offshore from Pozzuoli. The waters heated by volcanic activity are believed to have therapeutic benefits.
Naples is one of Italy’s most fascinating and historic cities, so it would be a shame to only immerse yourself in its hot tubs and not its culture. The choice of cultural attractions is vast and ranges from a day trip to frozen-in-time Pompeii to church-hopping in the UNESCO-listed Naples historic centre.
And for something really different, as well as an escape from intense summer heat, check out the city’s ancient underground ruins. Venture beneath the church of San Lorenzo Maggiore to see the well-preserved remains of a Roman market before heading back to your spa hotel and more relaxing.
