Exploring wellness treatments and ancient rock carvings
Boario Terme lies in the heart of the lower Val Camonica, just a few kilometres from Lake Iseo, at the foot of the Bergamasque Alps. This small gem is one of the most renowned health spas in northern Italy. Surrounded by four natural springs that belong to the large Parco delle Terme di Boario park, it is the perfect place for a wellness holiday or an out-of-town trip that is rejuvenating for the body and soul.
But this small spa area has plenty more besides to offer visitors. On the outskirts of the town, you can step back in time in the Luine Archaeological Park, which features some of the most extraordinary rock carvings in the world, dating from the Upper Palaeolithic to the Iron Age.
For an atmospheric walk before a relaxing afternoon at the thermal baths, you are sure to love the route that, amid vineyards and olive groves, crosses the entire Darfo Boario Terme area to Angolo Terme and Piancogno.
Finally, don’t miss a visit to the perfectly preserved Gorzone Castle, which was built in the mid-12th century by the Federici family of Val Camonica.
