I am often asked by visitting friends what they should see outside the city. The answer is always the same: if you want something close (40-minute drive) and absolutely stunning, go spend the day at the Balnea Spa.
Clients can go for the baths only a day pass ($55 on weekends, $49 on weekdays) gives access to several jacuzzis and pools and saunas, as well as lounging areas, a private lake with beach club, reading room and several chaises-longues for sunbathing. But Balnea also offers all sorts of massages and well-being treatments. It even has a restaurant and a boutique!
As for the scenery.... I'll let the images speak for themselves...
