Achieve measurable results and a deeper understanding of your health at The Ranch Italy!

The Ranch Malibu brings its award-winning, transformational wellness program to a historic property, nestled in one of Italy’s richest naturalistic areas, just 50 minutes from Rome.   The Ranch Italy at Palazzo Fiuggi combines a results-oriented fitness program with the services and expertise of the esteemed team at this renowned medical wellness retreat. The result is an immersive and transformative program that gives guests a more complete picture of their overall health and longevity, departing with a greater sense of self, feeling rested and rejuvenated while losing weight and gaining muscle.

Limited to 25 guests each week, guests can chose from either a 4-night, 5-day (available year round) or, from April - December, a 7-night, 8-day experience with a daily schedule that mirrors The Ranch Malibu’s signature no-options program. Each day includes a four-hour morning mountain hike, nap time, afternoon strength and core training classes, yoga and daily massage. During their stay, guests also receive diagnostic testing, a blood panel and a consultation with one of Palazzo Fiuggi's doctors.

As in Malibu, hikes are meant to be done for time rather than distance, with a varied trail each day. Guests scale elevations over 2,000 meters as they trek the Apennine Mountains that surround the Lazio region in which Fiuggi is located. The scenery varies from forested canopies, open meadows, valleys, and streams to hilltop hamlets, medieval villages, and ancient monasteries. Afternoon classes are held in a private section of the Palazzo for Ranch guests, who also have access to the Palazzo’s state-of-the-art 4,300 square-foot fitness center, complete with Technogym, Pilates, Yoga, and Relaxing Training equipment.

The rigorous routine is complemented by a nutritionally dense, plant-based menu with an Italian flair, created The Ranch Malibu’s Executive Chef Meredith Haaz and prepared by 3-star Michelin Chef Heinz Beck and his Palazzo Fiuggi culinary team. Meals are enjoyed as a group, in a private dining room overlooking the mountains and ancient hilltop town.

The Ranch Italy's weeklong program is offered from April – December. For those who wish to gain the benefits of this immersive wellness program, but are unable to commit to a full week, there is The Ranch Italy 4.0. This 4-day program is offered 52 weeks/year as a Thursday – Monday option and includes the same programming and medical offerings as the weeklong stay but over a long weekend to help jumpstart one’s path to better health.
