A little bit of history…. - Fiuggi is one of Europe's most important thermal centers, situated in the center of Italy, has perfectly preserved its rustic charm throughout the centuries, protecting the immense natural beauties from the risks of pollution. The thick chestnut woods are not just a great natural heritage, but also the best protection of its hydro-geological system. Located between Rome and Naples, Fiuggi enjoys an enviable climate. This small rural medieval village became known for its prodigious waters around the XII/XIII century, when its healing properties were investigated by Pope Boniface VIII himself, who, suffering from kidney stones and uremic poisoning, sent 51 convoys from Rome to bring him the prodigious liquid and recover from his illness. The great Michelangelo claimed that the waters of Fiuggi had relieved him of "the only kind of stone I couldn't love." Above the 20th century spa town known as Fiuggi Fonte, lies the picturesque town of Fiuggi Old town which, with its incredibly narrow medieval streets and alleys, is best visited on foot. The "Vicolo Baciadonne" is so narrow that pedestrians are obliged to pass within kissing distance of each other. Like all Italian spa towns, Fiuggi has lots of great shopping, and plenty of good restaurants serving healthy local food.
