Saturnia is part of the city of Manciano, on the Maremma hills that extend over the province of Grosseto. An ancient Etruscan town, with its medieval walls and remains of an old Roman road, Saturnia is known for its hot springs dating back to Roman times and still working today.
The sulphurous water at a temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius has renowned therapeutic properties, effective for the skin, the respiratory system and themusculoskeletal system. Sulphurous water gushes out of the ground at a rate of 800 liters per second, which guarantees the purity of the water. It is considered one of the best thermal baths in the world and combines luxury with health, relaxation, and pleasure, thanks also to the landscape that thevalley of Saturnia offers to its visitors.
Saturnia is famous among tourists especially for the natural falls at approximately 1 km from the Thermal Baths. All year long, even in the winter when the moon is full, access to the hot pool is free. A striking experience, especially if followed by a good dinner in local restaurants, for instance in Montemerano and in Manciano, where many pleasant spots can be found.
