The hot springs at Saturnia

Saturnia takes its name from the Roman god Saturn (or Saturnus). Legend has it that he grew tired of the constant wars of humans, and sent a thunderbolt to earth that created a magic spring of warm sulphurous water which would pacify mankind. Here you can enjoy the 800 liters a second of sulferous water at a temperature of 37.5 °C that attract visitors from all over Italy. Most people head to the waterfall next to a restored water mill, you can also take the waters at the five star ‘Terme di Saturnia’ hotel. Access to the waterfall is free and it’s open 24/7. To get there keep on on the road to Montemerano, drive along the straight stretch of road past the petrol station, at the turning to the left keep straight on. There’s a large car park at the end of the access road on the right. The best time to visit is late afternoon.

Saturnia itself has a pleasant main square with several restaurants/pizzerie and a couple of good ice cream shops!
