These warm pools use thermal springs carrying water from the Lessini Mountains to provide a relaxing ambiance and spa treatments.
Piscine Termali Columbus (Columbus Thermal Pool) is a large swimming complex whose water is said to contain healing properties. The site is made up of several indoor and outdoor pools and sun terraces. Swim with your family in the warm mineral-rich water that rises from subterranean springs.
Let your kids frolic beneath the fountains of the circular pool outside. Swim lengths in the adjacent rectangular pool, which is divided into lanes. The hot water is brought down to a comfortable temperature via a cooling tower, while a filtration system keeps it clean. Make a splash in the water at night, when the pools are lit up.
Learn about the underground journey of the thermal water, which takes 30 years to reach the swimming complex after falling as rain water in the Lessini Mountains. It eventually rises from the Abano Terme spring and is thought to contain anti-inflammatory properties as well as many other health benefits.
Get changed in the dressing rooms, which are equipped with individual cabins and lockers. Relax on one of the deck chairs on the terraces and enhance your tan. Alternatively you can also take refuge from the sun in the shade of an umbrella. On rainy days, the indoor pool provides a comfortable setting. Use the wide choice of spa treatments, such as steam jet inhalations, a nasal shower and water massages.
Purchase tickets to the pool on the official website and select from several family deals. The site runs during the week from noon until nearly midnight, with earlier opening times on the weekend.
