This famous area in Saturnia is one of the most photographed spots in Italy, with its stunning, aquamarine-coloured thermal pools spanning the beautiful hillside.
Saturnia Hot Springs, known in Italian as Terme di Saturnia or Cascate del Mulino, is one of the amazing wonders of the Tuscan countryside.
