Today, just like in the Etruscans and the Romans times 2000 years ago, Calidario offers a path of wellness passing through the most different experiences: from the ancient “Calidarium” (the same as the Turkish bath, with a hot and humid environment that brings many benefits to health) up to the modern massage methods and beauty treatments.
To visit Calidario there is a ticket of 18 euros per day for the access to the thermal bath. Umbrellas and sun loungers are included in the price. During the whole month of July and August it is possible to take a bath until midnight, every day and they offer a special price including a buffet, 1 free dink and live muisc starting 8 at night. The establishment is closed from Januray 7th to March 4th. Except for this period, Calidario is a great experience for an- off-season vacation in Tuscany.
Inside the establishment there is a shop where you can purchase products for your bath. A delicious restaurant offers every day typical Tuscan menus and special menus for a balanced meal. It is possible to organize meetings, ceremonies, family reunions and much more, upon reservation. Besides, there is a cosy café that offers breakfast, delicious appetizers, happy hours and a tea room.
It is possible to book all kinds of massages and beauty treatments like shiatsu, ayurveda, reflexology and relaxing massages. The most interesting package is the Etruscan path, which costs around 38 euros per person and includes the classic steps of the thermal bath:
First step – the “laconicum” or the steam bath;
Second step – the “calidarium” or the Turkish bath (a steam bath with higher temperature, around 40 °C or 104 °F);
Third step – the “frigidarium” which is an aromatic cold shower;
Fourth step – the “tepidarium” or “natatio” which is a warm whirlpool of relaxing effects.

Calidario can be a great day-trip for adults and kids who like to swim in hot mineral spring water; for those who love to have a nice picnic among the local pine trees which surround the lovely natural lake and provide some shadow; for those who like to sunbath by a hot water pool or swim even during the off-season period and for those who look for wellness treatments and massages.
