Tuscany's image for many include of fields filled with flowers, densely wooded hills and valleys aligned with olive groves, and acres of grape vines for wine. At Saturnia, about an hour south of Siena is a well known hot spring. The thermal, sulphur waters of the Terme di Saturnia are distinguished for their therapeutic properties since the Roman times.

As with mythological stories of that era, legend has it that Saturn, the Roman God of the Harvest, lost his temper with the men in the area that were blood thirsty for war. He threw a lightning bolt that split open the earth. The crack spilled hot sulphuric water over the people, and instantly calmed them to forget about fighting and enjoy life instead.

A series of rock pools have been turned white by the minerals of sulphur, calcium and carbon in the water, which falls in a succession of cascades into the pools.

The water temperature is approximately 98.6 F and instantly relaxes the body, releasing aches and pains. The hot spring water is beneficial for skin conditions and aching joints. Alongside is the Albegna River, where a jump in it will cool the body down.
