Some of the hotel’s services and facilities:
Terme di Monticelli is only 10km from Parma, a city of art that boasts the famous Teatro Regio, where, every year, some of the most internationally important lyrical operas take place, and one of the most important Italian gastronomic traditions, which is what enabled it to be chosen as the location for the European Food Safety Authority.
Monticelli is also part of an itinerary promoted by the Strada del Prosciutto and Vini dei Colli (streets of prosciutto and the wines of the hills) which is a renowned wine and food tourist route.
The castles around Parma are also worth visiting, including the Medieval Montechiarugolo castle, the places related to the life and work of Giuseppe Verdi (Roncole Verdi and Busseto), the lands of Matilda of Tuscany and the nearby Magnani Rocca Foundation Museum, where you can admire important works of art.
Sports lovers will also be satisfied with the nearby tennis courts, golf courses, riding facilities, fishing, target shooting, clay pigeon shooting and racecourse.
