The Cascate del Mulino Free Hot Springs in Saturnia Tuscany
The beautiful Cascate di Saturnia, a magical place to discover, unique for the properties of its thermal waters, for the limestone pools originating from the waterfall and the surrounding landscape. The free Saturnia hot springs are waiting for you!
Saturnia’s Cascate del Mulino are the most visited and famous tourist attraction in the Tuscan Maremma and mentioned in pretty much every tourist guide as one of the most beautiful Free Hot Springs in Tuscany. It is a place that formed entirely naturally through the rushing torrents of the waterfall that flow from the source, down the Gorello river and into naturally carved limestone pools.
Recently mentioned by the Huffington Post as the most important tourist destination in Italy, the hot springs have been included in the list of destinations to be seen at least once in your life by the New York Times and The Guardian. Lonely Planet has called them one of the 10 best hot springs in Europe.
The Saturnia Hot Springs originate from the sulphurous waters of the Terme di Saturnia® Spa, where the water flows from a natural spring at a temperature of 37.5°C (98.6°F), and thanks to the presence of a unique element known as Thermal Plankton, is said to have beneficial properties for the skin, as well as the digestive, circulatory and motor system.
The Saturnia hot springs flow from the Terme di Saturnia spa down the Gorello river, which feeds the waterfall.
Le Cascatelle (as the locals call them) can be seen from a distance like something out of a postcard.
The waterfalls are natural and free, so they are open 24 hours a day, every day, even in winter, and admission is free. At the waterfalls is a bar and a parking lot, which is always open.
