Such an Italian experience, somewhere between a monastery, a clinic and a swimming pool. About 52 euros for four hours. The water comes up out of the earth in various places, most spectacularly in the Volcano Source - a round brick and wood lined pool outdoors where you soak in very hot water - this is said also to be good for the lungs. There's also an atmospheric volcano steam room ( the turkish baths) set under brick arches, lit by LED fairy lights and steaming hot. This bath has nice touches like the scallop basin full of ice-crystals to drop down your (or someone else's) back, and the ice bucket challenge where you pull water over yourself before going back to steam. Inside the rather wonderfully restored building has 2 internal swimming areas, several lovely rooms to relax in (one with a water curtain which will have you dropping off) and one with soothing music. There's also outdoor space with jacuzzis, a gong lounge (yes really), and lots more. In general silence is encouraged. The treatment rooms are the italian-clinic thing, with many treatments from thermal mud and essential oils to more traditional facials and massage. No phones and absolutely no photos, best to leave them in the changing rooms, which are discreet, safe and thoroughly nice. They give you a hooded bathrobe and disposable flip flops when you enter. Bathing costumes necessary. Of course, being Italy, no visit is complete without food. There's a buffet area, with wholesome snacks provided in the price (crudites, rolls, crackers, jam, honey, tea, fruit juice), and coffee for 1 euro. Rather a good idea as you're there for 4 hours, which is just perfect to really relax. If you don't fall asleep at some point, it would be a wonder. Lots of young italian couples, as well as groups of friends of both sexes and of course girls on weekends away. The Spa is part of the general rediscovery of Acqui Termi and this delightful town should not be missed. Thoroughly recommend both.
