Parco Fucoli and Terme di Sant’Elena
It is very likely that the name Chianciano comes from Cis Clanas, subsequently Clancianum, in other words “beyond the chiana”. In the splendid parks which surround the town, Parco Fucoli and Parco Sant’ Elena, natural springs spout water which is curative for the stomach, liver and kidneys, well-known since ancient times by the Etruscans and the Romans, and used by sovereigns and princes.
“Sant’Elena” pure mineral water is renowned for its important therapeutic properties; it is diuretic and recommended for treatment of kidney diseases and gastrointestinal problems. It has always been bottled as it comes from the spring, retaining all its health-giving properties, and is excellent taken with meals. Inside the park, with its elegant bar, there are amusements and live music, with afternoon entertainment and dancing.
