1- How many spa centres are there in Bormio?
There are 3 different spa centre
- Bormio Terme
- Bagni Vecchi also known as Roman Baths
- Bagni Nuovi, that means New Baths
2- What are the main differences?
Bormio Terme is a modern thermal centre, entirely renewed. Beside the classic thermal cures like mud, inhalations, physiotherapy and rehabilitation, you will find the new wellness area. The wellness services include the indoor swimming pool, whirlpools, outdoor pools, four seasons pool, children pool, saunas, Turkish bath, relax area, water slides and games for the children. Bormio Terme is ideal for families.
Step back in time to the characteristic and evocative Old Roman Baths.
The secular caves and the Roman Baths are a true dive into the past.
More than 30 different thermal services are included with the entrance ticket: external panoramic swimming pool, old natural rock cave, hydro massage bathtubs, saunas, mud baths... It is the most famous centre and for this reason it is usually more crowded.
The New Baths and the 5 stars Grand Hotel were originally opened in 1836.
They were reopened again in 2003 after being closed for many years and after a long restoration period.
The main difference between the old and the new Baths is the liberty style that characterizes the new Baths and the extension of their thermal water outdoors (10 thermal pools and tubs in the great garden of Venus).
3- Which Thermal centre do you suggest?
Bormio Terme for swimmers, families and for people that only have a couple of hour free.
Bagni Nuovi & Bagni Vecchi for a romantic day, for a moment of complete relaxation, for a great scented massage. Both Bagni Nuovi & Bagni Vecchi are wonderful and evocative! Giving advice is difficult, but for who has the possibility to visit just one of them then I would reccommend the Bagni Vecchi, unique and special.
