Cascate del Mulino, Saturnia

4.5
#1 of 517 in Parks in Tuscany
Plunge into Cascate del Mulino, a natural thermal bath located in a spa town that has been inhabited since ancient times. At this location, 800 l (211 gal) of water gush into a large natural pond every second, flowing over a waterfall and down a series of natural pools carved into the rock. The water is comfortably warm at about 37 C (98.6 F), and is said to possess healing properties exploited since before the Roman era. Though the water is believed to be healthy, it also smells a bit like eggs because of its high sulfur content, so don’t wear your best swimsuit. There are no real tourist facilities here, so bring your own towel, slippers, and bathrobe, as well as some drinking water and a light snack. Cascate del Mulino is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Saturnia Edition.

  • Lovely spot in the middle of nature, totally place to visit. Great spas and natural spring water to 38 degrees of wellbeing for body and mind.

  • I visited the falls in March. A place full of magic. Beautiful hot sulphurous water is then maybe in the summer will not be as pleasant but in winter or spring and fall are perfect.

  • By itself it's an okay destination point but coupled with the scenery getting there and the cafes along the way, it's a worthwhile excursion. However, I don't think I'd have made the trip if I didn't have a car (vs. taxi). The hot spring has paid showers, free bathroom, free parking, no lockers or way to secure your stuff, and cafe. We visited in April and the water was pleasantly warm. If the air was cooler, it would probably be too cold.
  • This was nice for me. My wife was expecting much more. The stench here is very hard to get over. It constantly smells of rotten eggs. All the time. No exaggeration. The water was not hot. Warm at best. There is a resort up the road you can go to that costs money but is man made instead of this natural area. It still smells up there but they try to mitigate it. The spa is quite expensive as well.
  • Was just like it looked on the Internet. Beautiful countryside. Got there before 10, so plenty of parking and space to sit at the water side. Smell wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Worst part were the hundreds of tiny red worms in the water. Not sure what they were, mosquito larvae? Tried to ignore them, as everyone else was. Shower well afterwards. Buy tokens for the shower at the snack shop. Will need 2 for enough time. Food was surprisingly good and affordable for being the only place there. Free access to the water here, but eww, those worms! No one else seemed to mind but me I guess. Stayed the night at Bagno Santa Hotel. Beautiful place!!!
  • It was beatiful and the temperature of the water felt so great especially because it was cold outside. Took some maternity portrait for the wifey and it turn out great. Recommend bringing some snacks (food and drinks).
  • VERY nice hot springs with free parking (but virtually no modem facilities). Don't miss but make sure you are well equipped (sandals for the water and towels are essential)
