Stop time and escape from everyday madness, at least for one day. In Milan, nevertheless it is said its people are always in a hurry, you can do it. It is right in the city centre, where cars are honking and you wouldn’t expect to find an oasis of relax.
Where? In Porta Romana. In an Art Deco building, among the Spanish walls that divide this paradise from all the rest, you find 2.500 square meters of pure relax. Where at Qc Terme Milano, the perfect destination for those who want to leave their smartphones in the locker and think “for one day I’m not there for anyone”.
Be it winter or summer time, the important thing is to go out of this place feeling completely reinvigorated. The tram – the real historical tram of Milan! – is there to help you reach your goal since it has been converted into a biosauna. In addition to being the first biosauna in the world realized inside a tram, this vehicle of the ATM (Milan Transport Company) parked in the grass brings you, on the side of a moment of wellness, also some laughs at the thought that you are sitting in a tram with steamy windows in your bathing suit!
And after the 70°C degrees you breathe inside of it, you can immerse in the reaction tub at 15°C degrees and then, why not, enjoy a massage in the shade of the gazebo.
I don’t know about you, but when I go to a facility that is dedicated to wellbeing I really look out that everything is taken care of in detail and, most importantly, clean. You can only say the best about QC Terme on this topic. Both in the inside and the outside the personnel cares that everything is at its place and they even tell off some bad-mannared visitors who make noise or leave the paper cups around.
In the event that it is too cold to stay outside, in winter time you can wonder in the undergrounds of the facility, where you meet an endless wellness itinerary: more than 30 rituals with pools, saunas, hammams and Turkish baths. Among the geyser pools, the bicarbonate scrub and the chromotherapy you will find a wealth of options!
