Time to relax: Spa in Rome

Posted on May 14, 2024 in On your own

A holiday should be relaxing.

Usually a trip to Rome is not so relaxing as you can easily end up walking 20k steps a day! But you can find some time in your busy plan for a bit of relaxation in a Spa. After all the ancient Romans invented the thermal baths! Here some addresses:

  • Acquamadre: in the Jewish ghetto
  • Baan Thai: a centre for Thai massages near the Vatican
  • El Spa: not far from the Vatican
  • Livia: in a suburban area, but offering spacious facilities and also a pleasant outdoor pool for the summer
  • Templum Salutis : if you want to go off the beaten path, this is an hammam in Torpignattara
  • Terme di Roma: this is in Tivoli and it is a real thermal experience because their waters called “acquae albulae” were known in the past too for their healing properties. You find here also swimming pools and it is perfect after a visit in Tivoli’s UNESCO villas
  • Terme di Trastevere: as the name states, they are in Trastevere
  • Trilussa Palace: the spa is inside the homonymous hotel, at the edge of Trastevere
  • Victoria: this spa overlooks the beach of Ostia Lido and it’s the perfect combination with a tour in the archeological site of Ostia Antica
