The sulphurous spring waters, at a temperature of 99.5 °F, are well known for their therapeutic properties, offering relaxation and well being through immersion. The main thermal waterfalls are the Mill Falls, located at the old mill (stone building) as well as the Waterfalls of Gorello.
The whole fam left the house at 9am and we arrived at the overlook above the springs at 10:30. It took another half an hour to find a parking spot, get ready and get into the springs. We had to leave all of our belongings (minus towels and shoes) in the car because there was no safe place to keep them. It was free entry and there was no regulation on the number of people. When we entered around 11 we had a whole spring to ourselves, but by the time we left around 1, it was so crowded it was almost impossible to exit. However, it was one of the most relaxing mornings I've had since I've been here, those waters really did have some healing powers. Not to mention how soft my skin is and white my nails are. Although my hair still stinks of sulfur and I've washed it twice since.
It was raining when we left Grosseto, but sunny when we arrived in Saturnia. A few hours later, the rain caught up with us and we left the springs to have lunch in the city. It was established by an Etruscan civilization in 183 BC and was a cute little town, but because of the rain we didn't see much. We had a nice two hour lunch at a Roman restaurant before we started the drive back to Grosseto.
