In this video, IL’s European editor, Steenie Harvey is bathing in history in Tuscany, Italy. The hot springs near Saturnia in southern Tuscany’s Maremma region were used by both the Romans and the earlier Etruscans. Access to these sacred thermal waters is free.
These springs are badly signposted, but worth the effort to find as a nearby hotel charges 22 euro to bathe in their hot springs, but this one is free.
In this video, you’ll see:
- Steenie bathing in what she describes as a warm bath
- Italians of all ages bathing in the sun
- Locals who come for a dip every day
