From here, head to Saturnia for a relaxing spa break. Legend has it that Saturn became angry with the men on earth who were constantly as war. He is said to have taken a bolt of lightning and thrown it down to earth, which made warm sulphurous water gush from the crater of a volcano and eventually brought peace. The place where this all took place was Saturnia, where, today, the thermal springs flow from the ground at 37°C. This delightful town is home to a luxurious spa, but anyone wishing to try the thermal waters for free can go to Cascate del Mulino just outside the town where there are natural thermal pools fed by the Gorello spring. The flow of the water to the Stellata river has carved out pretty limestone pools where you can even take a dip in the winter.
