any spas in northern italy?

My fiance and I are going to Italy for our honeymoon (Lake Como, Cinque Terre) and are interested in visiting a spa. Are there any nice ones in these areas? Thanks.

Hello Rebecca, Your trip seems to be coming right along. Some of the best
spas in Europe are at Abano/Montegrotto
just south of Padua and near Venice.

Hi, Bob-- your advice in this forum is really helping me to plan my March trip. I will need to return to the Venice area from Tuscany for one night before my early morning flight home, and may have a car (unless I return it in Florence and train to Venice). Any idea how far Montegrotto and Abano Terme are from the Venice airport?

Abano is 56 km (34 mi.)and Montegrotto Terme is 49 km (29 mi.) from Venice...

Very famous spa town is Montecatini Terme in Tuscany. Probably the most famous in Italy. Should be reachable from the Cinque Terre.

... and you would have an extra bonus, Sue: March (as July) is very low season in Abano and Montegrotto Terme. You don't need to make any reservations. Just drive to a hotel, have a look and NEGOTIATE the rate. In the past, we were able to negotiate Lit 65,000/person on a 3-star resort hotel (2 doubles and a single) including a very good breakfast. Depending on the available time, you may even consider a TRAIN trip to Venice (50 minutes from Montegrotto). If you elect a visit to Padua instead, it doesn't pay to use the car (the trip takes longer than by train and you'll still have to find a parking spot). The train from Montegrotto takes only 9 minutes. Abano is somewhat more upscale ... if you intend to use the train for a trip, though, Montegrotto is more convenient because some trains don't stop in Abano.

In your case, Rebecca, Montecatini indeed seems to be the most appropriate choice.
