Abano Terme is today one of the most famous spa resorts in Europe and is considered the largest spa city in the world. The center of Abano Terme is characterized by a large pedestrian area overlooked by ancient and modern buildings, full of shops and clubs. Among the various historical-monumental testimonies it also contains one of the most important testimonies of the Aponus thermal baths, the Colle del Montirone. This small hill, once rich in naturally flowing thermal springs, was particularly dear to the ancient Paduans, who in Roman times surrounded it with villas and spa structures.
Very pleasant are the walks along the Viale delle Terme, which, lined with trees, runs the length of the entire city. In the pedestrian area there are the Kursal Gardens, a large area with splendid and well-kept flowerbeds with the beautiful Harlequin Statue.
And right in front of the gardens, there is one of the historical emblems of Abano Terme, the beautiful Grand Hotel Orologio.
