The most beautiful natural spas in Tuscany

Le Cascate del Mulino di Saturnia 

Not far from the ancient village of Saturnia, there are the Cascate del Mulino, a magical place to be discovered! Of ancient origin, the waters of Saturnia were already loved in the Etruscan and Roman times. Today they represent the most popular tourist attraction of the Tuscan Maremma and are considered the most beautiful free spas in Tuscany. In addition to their incredible beauty, the Cascate del Mulino di Saturnia are a phenomenal destination also for the beneficial and healing properties of the thermal waters.

The waters are sulphurous and rich in natural elements and gush out at a temperature of 37 degrees, a pleasantly warm temperature, highly appreciated especially during the winter. The panorama around is beautiful: the waterfalls are surrounded by the splendid Maremma countryside that frames this magnificent picture! These natural and free spas are open all year round and are completely free. They are particularly striking at night, with the full moon!

Terme libere in Toscana- Saturnia

Terme Libere Bagni di San Filippo 

Located in the south of Tuscany, in Val d’Orcia, the thermal baths of San Filippo are simply enchanting! Its thermal waters created a magical landscape made up of small pools, limestone formations and waterfalls. Fosso Bianco is the ideal destination for lovers of nature and thermal water. The first basins and the first limestone formations, are located right at the beginning of the path. If you want to swim in the sulphurous waters, you need to reach the Cascata della Balena, a large block of limestone that recalls the animal’s mouth. In this area, the water reaches a temperature of 48 degrees, allowing bathing even in winter. From the top of the limestone formation the thermal waters fall from a beautiful waterfall, going to settle in the natural pools. The clear colors of the water, in contrast with the colors of the forest, create a unique atmosphere of its kind.

Access to the entire Fosso Bianco area is free. The incredible properties of these thermal waters were already known to the Romans, who had been attracted to this area by the naturalistic and landscape beauties.

The water comes out of the source at a temperature of 43 degrees. Thanks to the high temperature, the natural spas of Petriolo can be used in any season of the year, even in the colder months.

In Piazza delle Sorgenti, you will find a medieval rectangular tub full of hot thermal water,. Around the pool there are elegant buildings that during the Renaissance hosted noble families on holiday in Bagno Vignoni. Today, the thermal pool is unfortunately not suitable for swimming, but admiring the smoke rising from the boiling water creates a truly suggestive context.

Its bucolic landscape and the particularity of the village attracts thousands of tourists every year.
