Rome has a long history of holistic beauty and health traditions, most of which revolve around water.Amidst the hustle and bustle of The Eternal City, pockets of peaceful paradise hide. And let’s be honest, a spa day is a great way to overcome jetlag. What better way to dive into local culture and customs than to experience its spa treatments? Here are the five best spas in Rome.
