This roman spa/bath/sauna is hard to get to but worth the trip if you want an authentic experience. You need to walk a fair distance on the beach then up a ravine and it's not well signposted. But when you get there, you get the...More

Although originally discovered by Ancient Greece colonizers 2,500 years ago, it was not until the Roman Empire that the many benefits of the Cavascura hot springs were developed into bathing, natural cave sauna and mineral shower facilities for the swinging elite of Rome. Very basic...More

You get here by walking about 5-7min from the Maronti Beach (between Barano and Sant'Angelo), quite easy to find and there is some signage though not very obvious. The place is not glamorous. You can pay a few Euros for just entering the place but...More

Loved this simplistic spa. Straight to the point in the old roman style. At first I was skeptical but quickly fell under the spell of this terme. My husband doesn't go for this sort of thing & he loved it. Low key no pretense just...More
