Since Roman times and even before, the healing properties and utter bliss of soaking in mineral water – sourced from bubbling springs and warmed naturally by the earth – has been a sure path to well-being in Europe. You’ll be spoiled for choice deciding where to “take the waters”, with such a wide variety of spa centers across the continent. You might rest atop ancient Roman walls or deeply relax in an Ottoman hammam. Feel like royalty – literally – enjoying all manner of restorative health and beauty treatments at centers favored for centuries by monarchs and creative geniuses. Stroll in beautiful parks or hike mountain paths between sessions. Make a spa retreat the capstone to an active holiday in Europe or plan a sybaritic spa safari and discover your favorite one!
