Hammam della Rosa
A Hammam is a steam room, similar to a Turkish bath, where Moroccans habitually go each week to cleanse themselves. Featuring a unique atmosphere, reminiscent of the ancient and magical world of “The Arabian nights”, Hammam della Rosa is the first hammam that actually recreates traditional spaces. Rituals start with a steam bath followed by a body scrub and massage. After completing your treatment, you can relax in a room decorated with carpets and oriental furniture, while nibbling on dried fruits and light sweet treats accompanied by a cup of mint tea. Hammam della Rosa won the Italian Spa Award for one of the best 10 Urban Spas.
