Spa Centers and Thermal Baths
Within easy reach of Borgo Sant’Ambrogio are two of the most famous Spa Centers in Europe: the Thermal Baths of Bagno Vignoni and Chianciano Terme. They boast natural springs which have been active for over 2000 years, producing water with extraordinary therapeutic properties, recognized as far back as the Etruscan and Roman eras.
Bagno Vignoni is a delightful village surrounding a huge thermal bath: the so-called Piazza delle Sorgenti, dating back to the 16th century and perfectly preserved. Its hyperthermal waters are particularly beneficial for the skin and joints.
The mineral waters at Chianciano originate from four springs and have detoxifying, depurative and anti-inflammatory properties.
There are many hot springs in the province of Siena, easy to reach from Borgo Sant’Ambrogio. Below is a selection of these with whom we have partnerships and agreements:
