Unusual Places in Italy: The Mulino Waterfalls

Jul 23, 2021 144

Cascate del Mulino are rated among Italy’s most beautiful hot springs – and they’re free.  Located in the Maremma area of southern Tuscany, they’re part of the world-famous Terme di Saturnia.  The warm water (37.5°C year round) that flows from the spring has been enjoyed and appreciated since Etruscan times, and the Romans built the first public bath in history in Aurinia, the center of Saturnia. 

Originating from Mount Amiata, once a volcano, sulphureous waters flow into the large waterfall powered by the Gorello thermal stream. The water that falls has dug many pools in the travertine rock over the centuries, leading to the creation of natural puddles where people can bathe.
