The hottest and most sulphurous of Tuscany’s hot springs, definitely worth a visit. You would need a car to get there. Try both sides -- near the bridge and further downstream.

This is a down-to-earth hot spa experience. And it's free. There are 6 artificial rock pools with hot water coming out of pipes from beneath the paid-for spa. It's fun if you are passing by. Not sure it's worth 30 min drive. Probably more fun...More

This is my first free thermal bath and it was truly a pleasant surprise. You have to reach there by car and it took me about 75 minutes drive from Cavriglia. When I first arrived, I saw a building and signs of terme. But I...More

Google recommended these baths to us and the pictures made it seem interesting, so we thought we'd mix it up a little so we took the two hour trip from Saturnia. After Saturnia these baths were a great disappointment. The river was low and full...More

We went to Terme di Petriolo on 30th Dec 2015 as a treat. We had booked the mud procedure and a massage. The receptionist was polite and helpful as we arrived later than planned and had to reschedule our procedure. But the Spa itself was...More

We are staying in castellini in chianti and visited petriolo on a rainy day. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, it was not ruined by being too 'touristy' which was a nice change. There's only about 3-4 baths you can sit in, so I imagine when...More

I just love places like Petriolo, but I know it is not for everyone. There is a conflict with writing about such places because their charm is because they are being kept far from the croud. This is a natural hot springs where u can...More

The natural hot springs, Bagni di Petrolio, are free of charge in nature, accessible by a footpath. Not to be confused with the Spa facility Terme di Petriolo! The hot water forms several basins along the river. Smaller, muddy ones down stream and a big...More
