Where does the name Euganean Hills come from?

The name “Euganei” (Euganean) is said to derive from the Greek word for “of noble stock”, due to the recognised beneficial properties of the thermal waters. Abano Terme has been known since the times of the ancient Romans for its magical, warm waters, as well as for the inhalation therapies that were already taking place at Montirone at the time. Nowadays, both inhalation therapies and mud therapy are patented and affiliated with the National Italian Health System. The AbanoRitz has its own thermal wellness centre with various curative, therapeutic and aesthetic activities. Medical director and specialised staff have been looking after the relaxation and wellbeing of our customers for more than 60 years, in a warm family atmosphere directed by the Poletto family in a matriarchy now in its fifth generation.

“Love for sport is an epidemic of health.”

Jean Giraudoux
