CHIANCIANO TERME

 This city can trace its history back to the 5th century BC and the Etruscans, who had built a temple dedicated to the god of Good Health, close to the Silene springs where Chianciano Spa stands today.

The curative power of Chianciano's waters Hotel Chianciano Termewas already known during Roman times, as Horace visited the area on the advice of his physician, Antonio Musa, during the 1st century BC and benefited from it.

Luxurious Roman villas were built near the thermal baths, like those which have been found near Mezzomiglio and Le Caramelle.
In the 12th and 13th centuries the city belonged to the Manenti Counts, Lords of Sarteano.
Its position close to the Via Francigena ( the medieval main  connection from France to Rome ) fostered Hotel Chianciano Termeits development and Chianciano reached a degree of judicial autonomy by 1287 when it established its own statutes.
In the 14th century the cities of Orvieto and Siena contended for it until in 1347 it became part of the Repubblica Senese.

The modern development of Chianciano is due to the exploitation of its numerous water springs that with their particular therapeutic qualities invite the tourist to a relaxing stay in the hotels of our thermal centre.
