Riolo Terme, the spa town which stands in the enchanting landscape of the lower valley of the River Senio some fifty kilometres from Bologna and Ravenna, owes its vocation to the presence of therapeutic springs that have been known since Roman times. The Borgo di Riolo was founded in the early Middle Ages. Being of military importance it was fortified in the 16th century by the Bolognesi and Sforza families. Its imposing bastions which were stormed in 1500 by Caesar Borgia are a splendid example of Renaissance military architecture.
Over and above the fortress, Riolo Terme's attractions include a mediaeval nucleus enclosed in its old walls which has remained more or less intact, splendid parks and the tranquillity of a spa town set in the green of the Appennines. There are fine sports facilities, notably the golf course which was created to cater to sports people at the high level of quality. The spa centre is characterized by the charm of late nineteenth century architecture and interior decor among the green of age-old plants and trees in the surrounding park-land. Here you can enjoy really special therapeutic and relaxing moments: the renowned waters of the Riolo Terme spas, universally appreciated for various types of pathologies, are used in avant-garde treatments.
