Bagni Vecchi Spa (Terme Bagni Vecchi)
This unique thermal bath complex adjacent Hotel Bagni Vecchi has six areas, each dating from a different period in history. You can relax in the Roman baths or in the 19th-century Baths of the Archduchess, which were built for the Austro-Hungarian aristocracy; sweat away your cares in the prehistoric Grotto of San Martino or a medieval-inspired sauna; or simply unwind in the modern Imperial Baths or the outdoor infinity pool, which overlooks the Bormio Valley. All of the spa’s baths and grottoes are fed by the mineral-rich waters of the Stelvio National Park’s underground hot springs.
Full- or half-day entry to Bagni Vecchi Spa must be booked in advance and includes the use of the pools, grottoes, and other facilities; spa treatments and massages can be booked for an extra fee.
