The inhabitants of Ischia in Naples Bay in the Amalfi region of Italy have been experts in Spa’s for over 3,000 years. It is indeed a Spa Paradise! The island has over 56 different mineral springs scattered across the island.
One of our favorite thermal spas is located between Ischia Porto and Casamicciola, Parco Termale Castiglione (tel. 081-982551; http://www.termecastiglione.it). It is a state-of-the-art facility offering thermal mineral waters and mud treatments in a mix of indoor and open-air facilities. The 10 scenic outdoor pools range in temperature from 82° to 104°F (28°-40°C). And it is located on the ocean with it’s own beach club available for spa goers as well.
In speaking to the locals these thermal baths are considered since Roman times to be the fountain of youth. Find out for yourself what we already know! Ciao for now.
