Liguria is a land stripe between the Alps and the Apennines on the one side and the sea on the other side. It is divided into two parts, the eastern and western coast. The region is rich in natural parks but its main tourism resource is the waterfront with its beaches. Spa tourism is represented by an important thermal centre, the “Terme di Pigna” in the province of Imperia. However, many hotel facilities like for example in Sanremo, Alassio and Bordighera give the chance to enjoy a relaxing holiday in their smaller thermal centres by choosing one of the wellness packages offered by the hotels.
Below you can find a brief presentation of the wellness centres in Liguria and the waters used by these hotels.
