Chianciano Terme is certainly one of the most famous spas in Italy. The springs of this area have contributed to making it an international destination for visitors seeking wellness experiences or requiring special therapeutic treatments. Already the Etruscans and Romans had grasped the beneficial properties of these waters and had settled on the gentle hills of Chianciano, which, over the centuries, has been able to enhance its tourist vocation and it has managed to take advantage of this priceless asset. The city has grown around its thermal baths and has built a state-of-the-art accommodation facility between hotels, restaurants, tree-lined avenues and green parks, to guarantee tourism every comfort.
The spearhead, of course, are the many modern and elegant spas, which allow you to immerse yourself in hot springs and sensory paths for real moments of pleasure. Between one bath and another, the cultural and architectural testimonies of the historic center risk overshadowing. Chianciano Terme has Etruscan origins. Surrounded by walls, it maintains an orderly medieval urban layout with a maze of alleys that lead to churches and civil buildings. The clock tower, with the Medici coat of arms is certainly among the most interesting monuments. A short distance away, you can find Piazza Matteotti, with the town hall building, the eighteenth-century fountain, the collegiate church of San Giovanni Battista, the Church of the Immaculate Conception, with the well-known fresco of the Madonna della Pace and the Palazzo del Podestà, dated back to 1200.
