Wellbeing for body and soul. Rejuvenate yourself like the Emperors did. By choosing Friuli Venezia Giulia you have the chance to lose yourself in a wellness and body care oasis. By combining century-old thermal traditions and herbal skills with a vast range of innovative techniques, the region’s three spa centres promise to transform your holiday into a relaxing and rejuvenating experience like you never experienced before.
The ancient Romans were the first to discover the healing effects of the mineral waters that supply the Spa of Arta Terme (Udine) from the Pudia springs. The spa’s location in the midst of unpolluted nature and the mild mountain climate are particularly favourable to renewing exhausted energy and, at a low altitude (only 420 metres above sea level), Arta has pure, balsamic air: the best possible conditions for a healthy holiday. The curative powers of this precious source are perfect to fight respiratory problems, liver and skin diseases, arthritis and arthrosis. While Arta awaits completion of its third pavilion – that will house an extensive physiotherapy centre, sauna and relaxation area – the Aquadea Wellness Centre is open for you to enjoy: a large complex with beauty, slimming, wellness, aesthetic medicine, solarium and holistic aroma therapy sections.
Saline and thermal waters and sand baths are the strong points of the Wellness Centre in Grado – the most fashionable spa resort during the Hapsburg Empire – well-known for the extraordinarily beneficial properties of the available natural elements. Rich in micro-organisms and mineral salts, Grado sands are a panacea for all kinds of rheumatic illnesses, problems with joints, and an aid to rehabilitation. But there is far more than sand. The crown jewel of this vanguard structure is the Thermal Water Park. The facility allows guests to use a thermal swimming pool with hydro-massage and waterfall jets to tone your body, as well as games, spring boards and a bar service within the swimming pool area. The recently renovated hot area of the Grado Spa is composed by a relaxation area, a sauna with sea spray, using sea water which is particularly good for the respiratory tract, a whirlpool and a bio sauna.
In another seaside location, but deep in age-old pinewoods facing the Adriatic, the Lignano Sabbiadoro Spa Centre is housed in an ultra-modern building with all the advantages of progressive thalassotherapy techniques and the beneficial properties of the sun-and-water formula.These seawater-based treatments are ideal for treating arthritis and ailments of the respiratory system by nebulisation. The centre also has a well-known beauty centre that offers initial checkups and personalised treatments to fight and eliminate cellulite, stress and excess weight by applying methods that combine body care with the pleasure of being pampered. The Lignano thermal baths are currently under requalification.
