The most romantic spas in Tuscany

Tuscany might be overlooked at first as a spa destination, both because of the mild climate and the vast amount other attractions you find there. Nevertheless, Tuscany has more thermal centers than any other region in Italy, spas that range from natural pools to 5-star spa resorts. You can pick any spa in Tuscany, and you are guaranteed a romantic and unforgettable experience, while you can reconnect with your body and the beautiful natural surroundings. From the many options, we propose you our four favorite spas in Tuscany.

Terme di Saturnia

Amongst the many beautiful thermal baths you found in Tuscany, Terme di Saturnia is probably the most famous one. Saturnia is located in the Southern corner of Tuscany in the Maremma Region, and the sulphurous springs found here were already loved by the Etruscan and later the Roman people. Nowadays it’s a place where you can enjoy romantic moments in a gorgeous natural environment. If you seek real luxury, the 5-star resort offers you outdoor pools, massage treatments and even a golf course. At the same time, if you don’t want to spend the night, you can enjoy a lovely natural experience at Cascate del Mulino, a wonderful open-air hot springs waterfall that comes down the hill.
