When it comes to a trip to Italy, there are so many places to visit that it can seem a little overwhelming - but a visit to Abano Terme in Padua could never feel like that; although there are plenty of things to see and do there, the laid back way of life and the friendly people will make you feel as though you are on a dream vacation.
The famous 'waters of Padua', the thermal health resorts that have pampered visitors for 2,000 years, are easily accessible from Abano Terme, and well worth a visit - indulge in the natural springs and feel your stress melt away.
There are a number of stunning churches in the town including Monastero Di San Daniele and Duomo di San Lorenzo which are open to the public for services or for a tour. The architecture is something that will never be forgotten.
If you are looking for history and culture, you're in the right place - there are two fascinating museums here that shouldn't be missed.
