Probably known since Roman antiquity, the thermal springs of Bagni di Lucca acquired great fame in the 11th century, at the time of Countess Matilda di Canossa, until they became one of the most elegant spas in Europe during the 19th century. Bagni di Lucca was a real elite destination for European tourism before the boom of the coasts made us forget this corner of Lucca, which the British called the "Switzerland of Tuscany". The Anglo-Saxons were the first to discover Bagni di Lucca and the therapeutic properties of its waters, loving it to the point of transforming it into a small second homeland. In fact, the town became - and even today traces of that brilliant British explosion can be seen - an exclusive meeting place for the nobility and diplomats from all over Europe, accredited to the court of Lucca and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, as well as a destination for illustrious guests, such as the poets Byron, Shelley, Lever, Giusti, Monti and then in the twentieth century Carducci, Pascoli, Montale; of writers such as Dumas and musicians such as Strauss, Listz, Paganini, Puccini, Mascagni; politicians and rulers such as the Napoleonids, Queen Margherita, D'Azeglio, Galeazzo Ciano; religious such as San Luigi Gonzaga, Santa Gemma Galgani and even of Popes, such as Sixtus IV and V.
The town center has all the necessary services that allows spending the whole year here. The 19 thermal springs that flow from the slopes of the Colle di Corsena are still particularly attractive today. The classic spa treatments can also be combined with physical, massage and physiotherapy, recreational and sports therapies: all in an environment that maintains the charm of the exclusive nineteenth-century spa.
