Go early in the morning to avoid large crowds, the official parking for camper is about 15min walk away,4 hour for 8 euro, or all day for 10, overnight for 14. Many people park on the road for free, i found it a bit dangerous. Recommended to visit not on hot days to enjoy the hot water more. Very beautiful place.

Cascate del Mulino in Saturnia, Providence of Grosseto in Tuscany is a rare hidden gem. From a distance it is beautiful to see. From within it is an exciting and unusual experience. Two waterfalls flow into natural travertine pools which fall into more rounded pools creating a cascade. The water is warm and rich in sulfur and minerals and supposedly good to bath in.

The hot springs here boast everything you could want from a hot spring. Exceptionally beautiful, very warm and definitely cascading. I would recommend bringing flip flops or swimming shoes as the rocks here are very sharp. Also, do not be afraid of the red larva. As well, we had not been aware we needed to pay for parking and there was quite a walk afterwards to the springs however, it was worth it. There is a little café here with the freshest pastries I've ever eaten. It was wonderful also incredibly affordable! I have never seen such a beautiful natural occurrence. Definitely a must see!

If you’re basing your expectations on idyllic Instagram shots then you might be disappointed, at least for the time being.

The land immediately surrounding cascades appears to be under development, having been recently churned up by diggers. There is also a lot of litter and erosion of the ground left by other visitors. In short, it’s not paradise.

I have no idea if the aims of the development are to eventually improve the appearance of the area, and some people might worry that the cascades will lose their authenticity. The fact is though that the falls are clearly already suffering from the number of visitors as it is, and so it seems wise for better facilities to be provided. The only other solution to preserve places like this is for tourists like me to stop visiting - perhaps we should!

Other than that it is quite amazing to see and bathe in hot water gushing down cascades in the middle of the countryside. The walk up to the village of Saturnia is also pleasant.

I’d recommend going at sunrise if you want to avoid other people. Even in January by the time I left at around 9.30am more and more people were starting to arrive.

Visiting thermal hot springs is a wonderful (and free!) way to relax and enjoy nature. The Cascate del Mulino Saturnia Falls, the Waterfalls at the Mill, is an exceptional and unique version. Situated an easy 2-hour road trip from either Rome or Florence, these natural sulfuric hot springs have gained international attention for their milky blue waters cascading down white travertine pools. Surprisingly, these falls are still free of charge to the public and draw large flocks of locals and tourists alike. Go early in the morning or on weekdays to avoid the crowds and enjoy soaking in one of the numerous pools if you want the classic instagram shots.

The bottom of the pools can be sharp, so be careful walking or bring water shoes. The water is dirty and due to being sulphuric, you will smell a bit like eggs afterwards and there is no showers to rinse off. However, there are local spas nearby that you can enter with an admission ticket.

There is free parking available on sight and plenty of space to leave your small personal items, i.e. towels and clothes, beside the hot springs.

It's a really nice place: while parking is not free, it's more than warranted as the park is free and well maintained.

The hot water sprints are great, although be aware they are hot (duh!) so it is not ideal going during summer. It is still a pleasant experience, if you can overlook the mass of people (very popular destination) and the loads of fauna (worms, insects...) you are bound to find during this season.

First of all I have to underline the fact that for free Thermal baths, the water is not so bad. And you also have free parking.
For all the rest: people and place I would say a big No NO. Is an open free space for everybody including animals that go inside the water. When I went, it was also full of drunk and strange people, I would not recommend this place for a solo visit or family with children.

What an amazing place! The waters round the 38 degrees mark which make it an all year round opportunity to visit. It is a beautiful scenery to see cascades of water falling from one section to the other of the rock formations. Absolutely relaxing and peaceful setting and an amazing nearby village called Saturnia to stay in. There is a restaurant on site where you can get literally anything and parking is free too. It is normally busy but you can always find a spot.

It was worth a two day trek to find this gem in Italia! Like the cathedrals this natural spa was decorated by God in natural beauty. It’s supposed to be open 24/7 year round but finding our way in wasn’t easy since the main tourist shack was closed this season. The Italians didn’t let that get in their way so we took a local tip and followed them to the baths. The water wasn’t as hot as expected yet warm enough to keep the late December chill off. I worried unnecessarily about rinsing the sulfurous residue but not uncomfortable at all. Fabulous experience especially since the crowds were at a minimum.

It’s mid of the summer and 36 degrees during the day. So we listened to a suggestion and headed out before the sunrise to be there for 6:30am. And it was great. Temperature around 22 degrees outside and already enough people but not crowded. Water was comfortably warm. The access is still for free (wow) and parking is also free until 8 am. It’s about 300m away from the terme. One thing that made us a bit nervous were these little worms that were swimming and floating in the water. Didn’t get the chance to google it yet but apart from picking one from my swimmers we didn’t have any issues with them. We enjoyed that experience
