Europe’s hidden coasts: the Maremma, Italy

Of course we also love the Amalfi coast and Capri, but unfortunately so do all tourist. The Tyrrhenian sea is packed with tourist in summer. However when you travel up north to the Tuscan beaches, you'll find a much less crowded but equally beautiful alternative near the rolling hills and romantic vineyards of Southern Tuscany. Come and discover the wilde beaches and untouched fisherman villages with their laidback charm with us!

The Terme di Saturnia hot springs

Activities The Terme di Saturnia hot springs

The Terme di Saturnia date from Roman times. Hot water (37°) springs from a volcanic crater and supplies the nearby spa pool and from there it flows along a natural stream for about 500 m where a drop forms a waterfall which rushes past the old mill and then goes on to form a series of natural, calcium-terrace pools. These beautiful falls are known as the Cascate del Mulino and the Cascate del Gorello. They are only 2 km from the village of Saturnia and entrance is free.
