Terme di Saturnia

This pretty, ancient Etruscan town, most famous for its nearby natural hot springs, was named from Saturn, the Roman for of time. It is said that he created the sulphurous spring by hurling a lightning bolt to earth. Another story claims it was Jupiter throwing a bolt of lightening at Saturn - and missing.

Following the winding roads towards Saturnia, if you look carefully and it’s cool enough you may be able to spot the stream rising from the warm water, which flows at body temperature of the spring. A cool, very early autumn or winter morning is the best time to come down to the water, when you have the place all to yourself, except for maybe a deer in the nearby olive groves. The water, which seems to explode out of the side of an ancient mill gushed into small, opaque, azure pools the colour of Peruvian opal. Set against the backdrop of the lush rolling hills of the Maremman countryside, with the heavy pounding of the gushing water, there’s really nothing quite like the experience.
