From The TV Show: Acqui Terme in Piedmont

In the Piedmont and Lake Iseo episode of the first season of Dream of Italy on PBS, Kathy relaxes in ancient Roman natural hot springs.

The natural hot springs at Acqui Terme were discovered by the ancient Romans…. for whom bathing and soaking was a national pastime. We visit Lago delle Sorgenti a day spa built around the remains of a 16th-century palace. This spa is unique in its Asian influences and the strict order in which guests must take the waters. The spa limits the amount of guests who can enter at one time, ensuring a semi-private experience. Lago delle Sorgenti recommends a sequence of 12 experiences lasting about four hours. Entrance costs 39 to 45€ per person. Reserve in advance. For more information, visit:
