Playing golf then relaxing at the spa – the perfect combination for golfers and wellness lovers is in the heart of Emilia, which includes the area of the provinces of Piacenza, Parma and Reggio Emilia.
Emilia Romagna is the only Italian region to network its golf-connected tourist offer. There are more than 25 golf courses of at least 9 holes, 14 of them having 18.
Emilia offers you the opportunity to test yourself on 8 courses. There is the course of Golf del Ducato and Golf Salsomaggiore Terme in the province of Parma, the Matilde di Canossa Golf, Golf Club San Valentino, Golf Santo Stefano and Golf Club Reggio Emilia in the province of Reggio Emilia, and the Croara Country Club and Golf Club La Bastardina in the province of Piacenza.
You can go from one to another without travelling too far and take advantage to stop in some of the most renowned spa resorts in Italy. The most suggestive is Salsomaggiore with an Art Nouveau style spa, with a strategic position a few steps from the city and not too far from the ridge of the Apennine mountain.
The Terme di Salsomaggiore is among the largest in Italy, famous for the salsobromoiodic waters rich in mineral salts, where you can immerse yourself in the Mari d'Oriente pools: one large one with a multiple hydromassage circuit, one medium with a vascular walkway and a small one with an aromatherapy pool. They are in the wellness centre located in Palazzo Berzieri, a beautiful Art Nouveau building, in which an eco-sustainable water-based area of over 500 square metres has been created, with fountains, water and light features and mosaic ceramics.
The Terme di Tabiano is instead recognized as being among the best in Europe for its sulphurous waters and it is called “the breathing spa”.
The Terme di Monticelli offers spa circuits in an age-old twenty-five-hectare park. The Beauty Spa is a place that is good for the soul. The waters are of marine origin and among the wellness areas there is a Finnish sauna, a chromotherapy Turkish bath, a hydromassage pool and Niagara hydromassage that combines air and water in different parts of the body in a unique setting, a salt cave and summer garden with outdoor hydromassage pool. You are spoiled for choice.
