Terme Dei Papi in Viterbo.
These thermal springs were enjoyed by Etruscans and Romans alike, and then it was the turn of the popes, Michelangelo, and an endless list of VIPs of the past. Sadly, virtually nothing remains of the Romans thermae, but the sulphurous springs here still do their job are especially good for chronic respiratory and skin complaints. The main feature is a sleek 2.000 square-metre swimming pool filled with steaming hot thermal water straight from the Bullicame spring. The warm vapours are especially pleasant during winter months.
The best thing is the mud, which has spent thousand of years maturing on the bed of the thermal pool and is used today for therapeutic purposes. The Terme dei Papi extracts two kinds of mud - the grey lavic one, used in mud therapy, and the white one from the spring, used in beauty treatments.
