THEIA Thermal Pools
Terme di Chianciano opens its new Theia thermal pools, "the Etruscan Baths", a name that evokes the historical roots of the site, which was named after Sillene by the Etruscans. It is, in fact, derived from the Titan goddess of light, Theia, "she who shines in the distance," the mother of Selene in Etruscan mythology. The thermal pools are located both indoors and outdoors and can be used by young people and families and anyone who wants to combine traditional treatments with the wellness provided by thermal water, all in a natural setting of outstanding beauty.
The Theia thermal pools are fed by the water of the Sillene spring, which flows from a depth of 120 metres. The temperature of the pools is between 34°C and 37°C. The Theia pools are open from 10am to 8pm. The new spa includes four indoor and three outdoor pools, all connected to each other and about a metre and a half deep. The total surface area of the pools is about 600 square metres.
All the pools are equipped with water fountains, whirlpools with sun loungers, "swan necks", which are special water jets for the neck, special chairs, barrels and a "well", an evocative game involving thermal water. The pool area and outdoor gardens are furnished with deckchairs, sun loungers, parasols, tables and chairs, as well as a bar that also offers meals.
