Tufa towns

Saturnia. le cascate

Directing internally, about an hour away, among the hills and woods, you can go to the famous thermal locality of Saturnia (50 minutes by car) to have a pleasurable bathe in the sulphate  water which is always 37°c and with curing properties.

Or you can visit the enchanting villages of Pitigliano, Sorano and Sovana, also known as “the city of  tuff” (tuff being a hard volcanic rock) for their characteristics;  for example, the nucleus that inhabited in the most antique part of Pitigliano was built on a mass of tuff, it is breath taking because it gives the impression that the village is hanging in mid air!
