Porretta Terme is located in the upper valley of the Reno River, at an altitude of 349 metres above sea level, surrounded by green hills with lush vegetation that allows you to enjoy the benefits of the waters internationally renowned for their effectiveness and purity.
Nestled between 2 natural parks, that of Corno alle Scale and that of the lakes of Brasimone and Suviana, Porretta Terme and its territory offer 300 km of trails that will lead you to small stone villages, churches and shrines.
With trails for trekking and mountain biking, you will discover the beauty of our Apennines, ski slopes, water mills, ancient ironworks, local museums and the many gastronomic traditions based on chestnuts, mushrooms and local truffles. In addition, Porretta Terme is located 1 hour by train or car between 2 beautiful cities of culture and art such as Bologna and Florence.
It is said that Porretta Terme is The Heart of “High Reno Valley”.Guests will find all they need to relax and have a great time, breathing pure air, wandering the around the shops, perhaps drinking a glass of wine in a bar or restaurant, watching a movie at the local cinema or heading for the Olympic swimming pool and sports centre to keep in shape.
