Since the ancient time of the Romans, Italians have often sought out the healing powers of ‘spa-like’ thermal springs, pilgrims on the historic ‘via francigena’ often stopped at popular points like Bagno Vignoni to dip their feet in the therapeutic waters. It really hasn’t changed much in the 21st century, spas are still extremely popular in local culture and offer a break from the busy lives of most people.
