Chianciano and SPA

Chianciano - Waters and Springs

Chianciano Terme is a unique health resort whose baths have been renowned since very ancient times.
The earliest Etruscan findings date back to the 4th century BC and portray the Goddess Sillene.
According to the legend, Sillene, who was the goddess of beauty for the Etruscans, used to hide in the spring where she often bathed and the spring soon was called by her name.
The passing of time and the populations that have followed each other with different cultures have not erased the main feature of this warm land, full of colors and passion: water.

The waters of Chianciano surface from four different types of springs.
The first three springs belong to the bicarbonate-sulfate-calcic type, but they are different from each other in relation to the water temperature at the spring and to the quantity of minerals they contain.


The spring of the Acquasanta water is located in a wonderful, wide and very ancient forest.
The water surfaces at a temperature of 33°C and it is drunk in the morning on an empty stomach.
It is advisable to continue the therapy for at least 12 days, according to the directions given by your doctor.
It is highly beneficial in case of liver and bile system pathologies, such as dyspepsia of gastrointestinal or biliary origin, biliary calculosis, and after surgery to the bile ducts, as well as in case of prolonged drug therapies.
Drinking this water causes contractions of the gall bladder, which empties thus pushing the bile into the intestines. This stimulates the production of bile and helps its outflow, it also strengthens the enterophatic circulation of bile acids. The result is a considerable improvement of liver and bile functions, digestion, absorption of fats and elimination of harmful substances. Therefore, the Acquasanta water has the ability to clear the body of toxins, which is nowadays seen as a fundamental function in the medical field.

Sensory SPA

Since September 22nd 2006, Chianciano Terme has played host to the brand-new Sensory SPA. Built in the Acquasanta Thermal Park, this facility, unique in Italy, offers therapies based on the criteria of naturopathy.
A futuristic sensory hall has been created in the former area of the Sala Garboli within the Acquasanta Park.
Here visitors can sample different sensory trails in order to regain balance of their human energy field through the harmonization of the five key elements (Water, Fire, Earth, Air, and Ether), by going along a spiral path built within a 'magic box' perfectly integrated in the Acquasanta Park.
Paolo Bodega is the designer of this brand-new facility that brings together the rebalancing of chackras - our body's energy centers - and state-of-the-art architectural solutions that also include a renovation of ancient thermal springs.
Among the therapies administered in the facility, which are part of tailor-made trails designed to cure various types of pathologies: saline shower, sauna, aroma and music therapy, energetic grotto, color baths, cold fog shower, Kneipp water therapy, stimulating balneotherapy, Turkish bath, tropical shower.
The Sensory Spa also includes an energetic pyramid and a completely soundproof room. Underneath the Sensory Hall there is an area where visitors can touch and manipulate different types of thermal muds. At the end of this regenerating trail it is also possible to drink thermal waters from ancient springs - Macerina, Capecchi and Casuccini - which are perfectly integrated in this process of energetic rebalancing. The innovative approach of the Sensory SPA involves the assessment of the degree of wellbeing of each individual and the designing of specific trails capable of rebalancing one's psychical and physical conditions.

Acqua Fucoli

The cold mineral water called Acqua Fucoli is a complement to Acquasanta, it is drunk in the afternoon and it is particularly suited to those with gastrointestinal and biliary conditions.
It surfaces in a park by the same name, which is connected to the Acquasanta Park.
It is most beneficial in the afternoon, when the digestive process is completed, and it causes an increase in the quantity of bile, thus favoring its outflow.
It is particularly suitable for the regularization of intestinal movements, it activates the diuresis and it exerts an anti-inflammatory action on the gastroduodenal mucosa.

Acqua Sillene

Acqua Sillene has a temperature of 38.5°C and it is used for the carbogaseous balneotherapy as well as for the preparation of thermal muds. It is effective when treating cardiovascular problems and often included in health and wellbeing programs.
Letting yourself be wrapped in the warm and welcoming embrace of a toning bath or a therapeutic mud bath is the best remedy to effectively boost your blood circulation.
Acqua Sillene is beneficial to the circulatory system, thanks to its chemical and physical characteristics and to its ideal temperature.
Treatments with “Acqua Sillene” are administered by means of bath and mud bath therapies (the mud is made up of clay which is “matured” by commixture in Thermal Waters and heated to a temperature of around 48° C).
An innovative range of natural thermal cosmetics has recently been created using the water flowing from the Sillene spring, whose beneficial properties are preserved thoroughly intact.


The water flowing from the fourth spring, Sant'Elena, is diuretic and suited in case of kidney stones, metabolic disorders and urinary system problems.
The “Sant'Elena” water is always easily tolerated, it increases the diuresis, depurates the body from toxins, and both during and after a specific therapy it stimulates the discharge of kidney stones and of their traces, also preventing their reforming. It relieves acute and chronic inflammations of the urinary system and regularizes the abnormal metabolism of uric acid.
It is particularly suited in case of gastrointestinal dyspepsia and related disorders (heartburn, spasms, etc.), it stimulates the digestive functions, and it is an ideal complement to physical and sporting activities.
The Sant'Elena water can be drunk either at its natural temperature, or warm, or hot, in the morning on an empty stomach. Each of the four springs is surrounded by a fully-equipped spa facility.
