Saturnia Thermal Baths

What could be more soothing than a soak in a thermal bath after a long distance ride? Find out here…

Running down the hillside in Lower Tuscany lies one of Italys best kept secrets. Its a thermal spring whose sulfuric waters have created cascading rings of rock pools. Complete with a rushing waterfall and terraces in which one can sit to enjoy the warm water flowing over your body makes for a unique experience. Not to mentikn the fact that its free! Yes, this wonder of nature has no entry cost and you will find travellers and locals alike coming to soak in the healing waters.

The Baths of Saturnia are reachable by bicycle from Tarquinia train station although would be better visited as part of a multi day trip through Italy.

Consider joining us for one of our forthcoming Italian Cycling Holidays to reach this spot as part of a longer itinerary.

About the author

Originally from South Africa, I moved to Italy in 2007 after having finished school in England. My grasp of the Italian language was basic but enough to get to know people. By the end of 2008 I had mastered an intermediate level of italian and would continue to progress onto higher levels. Today my proficiency of the italian language is enough to fool some italians into thinking I'm one of them! Although I never manage to be as charming... My other interests besides Italy, the Italians and the Italian way of life are: Cycling, Languages and Travel. At the moment I am heavily involved with the day-to-day running of The Red Bike Shop and am a keen cyclist, taking part in races and especially Grandfondos (one-off races). My goal for the future is to open a fully functional bike shop in the center of Rome.
