New Year’s Eve in the Hot Springs of Tuscany

Christmas holiday season is on the way and most of us start to seek ideas and advices both for presents and events to celebrate the New Year. The night of December 31st, that in Italy is also called “St. Sylvester Feast”, is celebrated in Tuscany with many open-air concerts, festivals and shows (despite the often cold temperatures), and huge fireworks in the most beautiful and evocative squares of cities and hamlets, but also with delicious dinners in restaurants and historical palaces. Another nice idea is that of welcoming the New Year with a relaxing dip in one of the many Hot Springs, where special programmes for the last night of the year are organized. Here’re some suggestions for welcoming the upcoming 2017:

In Chianciano Terme in the Province of Siena,  the “sensory SPA” , offers a unique experience to regaining the harmony of all senses thanks to their Sauna, Ice Crash, Aromatherapy, Music Therapy, and sensory showers.  Those experiences will be complemented with a buffet dinner based on the excellent typical products of Tuscany, and the classic midnight toast. The programme will start at 8:30 p.m. and will continue until 1:30 a.m.  The cost is 160,00€ and if you are interested in taking part in the event, don’t leave the reservation until the last moment since these initiatives are usually fully booked. Here’s the website Still in Chianciano Terme, another option is awaiting the New Year while bathing within the Theia Spa Pools: made up of 3 indoor and 4 outdoor baths, the site will be open on December 31st from 9:30 p.m. till 2 a.m. The entrance is €99,00 and includes a buffet dinner with typical Tuscan products, as well as midnight toast.
