A History of Wellbeing

Italians have always placed a heavy emphasis on the importance of physical wellbeing and the self. This is especially indicated throughout history, with the prevalence of Roman baths used during and after, medieval times. Authentic boutique spa-towns, present by the hundreds, specialize in providing thermal and exfoliating treatments to cleanse and detoxify the skin and body. Hand yourself over to the experts, and indulge in Italy’s abundant natural hot springs while benefiting from their many therapeutic effects on the skin and joints.

The Italian Way of Living

Italians are known to having one vital feature in common: a love for living life the way it should be lived. This involves highlighting the importance of enjoying the finer, simpler things in life. Spend the day sipping on delicious espressos from one of the rustic cafés that line the most famous people-watching squares such as the Piazza San Mano in Venice or the Piazza Di Spagna in Rome. Join the locals in the essential daily ritual of ‘passeggiata’, the evening stroll, after a scrumptious meal made from only the finest and freshest ingredients. Enjoy a day trip to one of the art-packed towns of Florence, Pisa or Siena, and admire the many architectural wonders that testify to Italy’s magnificence. Spend the day shopping at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, the most glamorous shopping mall in the world and end the night in harmony after paying a visit to the Duomo Di Milano, the splendid gothic-like cathedral. Make your way over to Italy and enjoy the finer pleasures in life!
