Arrecife (Lanzarote), Canary Islands | The Healing Effects of Aloe Vera
Learn the natural secret to healthy living on the Canary Islands – the local aloe plant. Often called the plant of immortality, aloe vera has been revered throughout history for its healing properties. The benefits of this spiky cactus-like plant range from healing skin injuries and sunburn to minimizing wrinkles and even soothing your stomach. Discover all about the cultivation and therapeutic uses of this miracle plant and even how to prepare a DIY aloe product at a unique aloe center and museum in a Canarian village.
Cartagena, Spain | The Curative Muds of Mar Menor
Just north of Cartagena lies the inland sea called Mar Menor, which is separated from the Mediterranean Sea by a narrow sandbar. Natural channels allow the Mediterranean to feed Mar Menor, and the high level of salt in the water combined with long hours of sunlight have created the largest open-air mud therapy retreat in Europe. Take a relaxing stroll along the seaside promenade and learn the many benefits of the mud baths.
Corfu, Greece | The Greek Gods of Wellness
Vineyards and olive groves flourish, culinary culture is celebrated, and health and well-being are a way of life at Ambelonas Corfu. Tour this ancestral estate in the heart of the island and learn how to improve your quality of life through the seven dimensions of wellness. Practice some revitalizing meditation and yoga, and then enjoy a cooking class using organic products to prepare a fresh, balanced meal. You will leave Ambelonas Corfu feeling invigorated and with knowledge of new ways to implement rejuvenating habits in your daily life.
Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy | Thermal Baths of the Popes
The thermal springs in the ancient city of Viterbo have been celebrated since the time of the Etruscans. Here you will experience the Thermal Baths of the Popes, which have been visited by a succession of popes since the Middle Ages. Relax in the splendid outdoor pool that stretches over 20,000 square feet and is fed exclusively by the thermal waters of the famous Bullicame spring, celebrated in the works of Dante and Michelangelo. The warm waters and soothing vapors provide the ultimate relaxation, relieving muscle tension and nourishing your skin.
Taormina (Sicily), Italy | Yoga on the Terrace of Taormina
Perched in the cliffs of Mount Tauro on Sicily, Taormina stands on a natural terrace that overlooks the sweeping bays of the Ionian Sea. This enchanting town provides the perfect setting for a revitalizing course of yoga with a majestic view. Afterward, enjoy some time to reflect on your experience while you savor fresh fruits and juices and relax by a sparkling pool.
