The Ranch Italy 4.0

Jumpstart your path towards better health in our 4-day fitness and wellness program in Italy


Calm your mind and challenge your body in as little as four days at The Ranch Italy 4.0!  Over a long weekend, Thursday – Monday, you’ll participate in an active program designed to help you jumpstart a path towards better health while leaving with mental and physical results along with medical insight.  This program is ideal for solo travelers, couples or groups and perfect if you want to improve your overall wellness but can’t commit to a full week or wish to end a trip to Italy with a healthy reset.

Limited to 25 guests each session, this experience takes place at Palazzo Fiuggi, a new medical wellness retreat nestled in one of Italy’s richest naturalistic areas, just 50 minutes from Rome.  The daily schedule 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, restorative yoga and a daily massage.

As in Malibu, hikes are meant to be done for time rather than distance, with a varied trail each day. You’ll 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 Reaxing Training equipment.

“Wow! What an incredible experience.  The Ranch Italy blew me away.   The Ranch team was first class all the way, the food was delicious, the hikes were magical and the accommodations were very nice.  I was only there 4 days and lost several pounds and inches!” – C.L.

The rigorous routine is complemented by a nutritionally dense, plant-based menu with an Italian flair, created by 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.

During the long weekend program, guests will enjoy the mental benefits of connecting with nature’s healing elements and routinely gain muscle and lose fat, inches and weight with many continuing to see results following their stay.  The addition of diagnostic testing, a blood panel and medical consultation offers participants a more complete picture of their overall health and longevity upon departure.

For those looking for a longer wellness experience, The Ranch Italy is also offered as a weeklong Italian immersion.

The Results

The Ranch 4.0 can often help one jumpstart their path towards a healthier lifestyle.  Guests detoxify the body and educate themselves on creating a positive shift in their habits while gaining muscle, losing fat and mentally resetting.

“The Ranch 4.0 was truly a life-changing experience for me. After 4 days of clean eating and hiking is it too much to say that I’m LITERALLY seeing more clearly?
I don’t think so. It’s amazing and challenging and rewarding. GO FOR THE RESET YOU NEED!” – J.D.R.

Upon completion of the program, guests log more than 30 miles of hiking, clear their mind and feel the revitalizing benefits of a plant-based diet.  Often guests continue to lose weight and inches even after they return home. Lasting nutritional and fitness guidance from The Ranch experts will continue after departure to ensure guests sustain the benefits of their stay.



The optimal environment for regeneration, surrounded by nature and nestled in a tranquil valley
with a history of healing, just 50 minutes from Rome

Located on an ancient hilltop, surrounded by centennial sequoia trees, in a private 20-acre park, Palazzo Fiuggi is a historic property nestled in one of Italy’s richest naturalistic areas. Known for the unique healing powers of its water since the early fourteenth century, the region was often visited by royalty, popes and masters of the Renaissance, including Michelangelo, for its restorative qualities.

At 700 meters above sea level, the newly renovated retreat offers clean and pure oxygen-rich air that creates the ideal altitude for personal transformation. The luxurious property and five-star service mirror what is offered at The Ranch as guests stay in private accommodations with views overlooking the grounds of the park or “old town” of Fiuggi. Rooms are flooded with natural light, each featuring smart, contemporary styling that complements the Liberty-period provenance of the historical building.

“Palazzo Fiuggi is a stunningly beautiful hotel with one of the most incredible spa facilities I’ve ever seen. The treatments and pools were a huge treat.  Lastly, the legendary healing waters of Fiuggi have left me feeling internally restored and my skin is extremely soft and glowing.” – P.D.

Guests of The Ranch program can also enjoy the retreat’s panoramic indoor and outdoor pools, that feature views of Fiuggi “old town.” A highlight of the experience is Fiuggi’s world-class spa, or Roman Thermae which includes the use of hydrotherapy and Thalasso pools featuring the ancient healing waters of the area.
