THE newly-restored 19th-century Hotel Helvetia, in the little town of Porretta Terme, has a stunning spa carved out of the rock-face with a hydro-massage pool, waterfalls, calidarium and hammam housed within a stone grotto.
Dry down and then work your way through the three hot-room chambers - the tepidarium (warm), calidarium (hot) and, best of all, loconnium (hottest).
First you soak up the atmosphere in the tepidarium, then it hots up when you go into the calidarium and the laconium, before finally relaxing in the frigidarium.
