We had a morning/afternoon to kill before our connecting bus down to Tirano and visited Bormio Terme. I suffer from chronic sinusitis so (due to the very accomodating staff) I managed to carry out the doctors' examination and have 2 treatments (inhalation and a micronized nasal showers), followed by a visit to the water zone.
To the other reviewers whinging about the price - Bormio terme, or for that matter any Terme in Italy is not simply a swimming pool. It is first and foremost a medical-grade facility, with qualified staff who can diagnose and prescribe treatments with thermal water, recognised on an Italian and EU level for its' therapeutic properties. The water in the pools and thermal circuit are (AFAIK) chlorine-free, which is fantastic for the whole organism.
I really enjoyed my 3 hour stay - both in the indoor and outdoor pools as well as the thermal circuit zone upstairs. The entire design is functional (not as many airs and pretences as the Bagni Vecchi and Bagni Nuovi - and I would know as I've visited all three) but well thought-out and designed.There are fantastic views from many of the rooms especially the panoramic Finnish sauna.
I would dispute the previous reviewers who earmarked it as non-traditional. I would contest that this as typical of a Terme accessible to and highly frequented by average budget-concious Italians who are conscious of the considerable health benefits of the thermal water. The Bagni Vecchi/Nuovi are more for special occasions (affairs and the like...) and are not even completely authentic (much of the "tradition" is simulated/reproduced).
It's located slightly to the north of Bormio town centre, an easy 10-15 minute walk from the bus station. Highly recommended if you have an afternoon to kill and would like to soak up some o the thermal water.
