The two thermal pools at Hotel Terme Venezia, which are connected, are both filled with local geothermic water that is part of the salso-bromo-iodine category and which boasts special benefits when treating osteoarthritic, rheumatic, inflammatory, gynecological, respiratory and metabolic diseases. What is more, both the pools have hydromassage points and waterfalls for neck massages. Another specialty in Abano Terme is mud therapy, thanks to the richness of the substances in the water upon contact with natural clay, as well as balneotherapy.

Some of the hotel’s services and facilities:
The area of Euganei Hills and the other easy-to-reach areas here offer a large range of activities that few places in Italy can boast, including spa, nature, sporting and cultural tourism. Without going too far from the Abano Terme you can go on some of the splendid itineraries which are less touristy and more ‘off the beaten track’, including: the Santa Maria Assunta Benedettina Abbey of Praglia, the most important and religious monument in the area; the town of Arquà Tetraca; the Medieval Monselice; and the Villa Barbarigo parks in Valsanzibio, an extraordinary example of 17th century Italian gardens that have been perfectly preserved.
What is more, a stay in Abano Terme also means having the ideal base to visit some of the most beautiful cities in Veneto, from Padova and Venice to Verona and Vicenza.
