Riolo Terme is one of the most well known Italian spa & vacation centre, situated in the Senio Valley.

The old part of the village was founded as a borgo in the fourteenth century surrounded by a strong wall. The more recent part of the village spreads towards the majestic “Parco delle Terme” (Spa Park) in perfect fin de siècle style. The name "Riolo" derives from “Rio Doccia” (Shower Stream) a fine stream, like rainwater that flows down near the Fortress. For over two centuries the village was known as "Riolo Secco" (Dry Stream).

In 1914 the town was named "Riolo Bagni" due to the therapeutic properties of the surrounding springs. The current name was adopted in 1957 thanks to the importance acquired by the local thermal centre.

The thermal complex at Riolo is equipped for providing treatments for respiratory problems, throat problems, and a number of other health problems with natural waters and muds. The "Terme Bimbo" (Spa Baby) dedicated to children is equipped with games, and cartoon videos. Another section houses the thermal swimming pool with hydromassages with different strength jets. The first Italian "Metologie Naturali" (Natural Methods) centre opened in 1996, combines the traditional healing powers of the spa waters with the most advanced forms of modern natural therapies, including phytotherapy using natural herbal products.
