The Thermal Baths of Bagni di Lucca

The Thermal Baths of Bagni di Lucca have a long history and have attracted visitors from far and wide for centuries.  The waters are highly curative and having a treatment in an original thermal establishment is a special experience – the ancient thermal grottoes, for example,  are really magical.

From Casa Tolomei you can reach Le Terme at Bagni Caldi via a beautiful walk though the woods, romantically called the “Via dell’Amore” . The walk takes you uphill and then down again, somewhat steeply at times. Start from the park (Parco Contessa Casalini) and go up past the Villa Ducale and Bagno alla Villa.

It continues upwards through the woods…

On the way, you can enjoy wonderful views of the rooftops of Bagni di Lucca

At the “Paretaio”, (where there used to be a cafe/bar a long time ago), continue around the curve and start to go downhill, following the sign for Bagni Caldi

After few hundred meters you reach the beautiful Thermal Baths of Bagni di Lucca. You can take the steps down after passing the partially restored church.

It is a great walk to reach a special place.

Furthermore, we’re pleased to announce that guests of Casa Tolomei benefit from a 15% discount at the thermal baths. Note that booking in advance is highly recommended.

    1. It is one of our our favourite walks, and if you add a session at the Grotta Paolina, it turns into a real treat!
