Trescore Balneario (Bergamasque: Trescùr Balneàre) is a town and comune in the Province of Bergamo, Lombardy, northern Italy.

History[edit]

The city itself is mentioned for the first time in 996 AD.

However, the area had been known since ancient Roman times for its hot springs, which were enhanced by Bartolomeo Colleoni and are still active. The word Balneario in the name means "of the baths" in Italian, identifying Trescore Balneario as a spa town.

Main sights[edit]

Nearby is the Villa Terzi, a notable example of a northern Italian 18th-century residence.[citation needed]
