Saturnia, Pitigliano and Sovana the tuff cities

Saturnia and the tufa towns Pitigliano and sovana. The story that is handed down. The ancient Etruscan civilization, with the nearby necropolis full of charm.

Heading inland, about an hour away, through hills and woods, you can reach the famous spa town of Saturnia (50 minutes by car) to enjoy pleasant sulphurous water baths with a temperature of around 37 degrees and with extraordinary healing properties.

Or visit the enchanting villages of Pitigliano, Sorano and Sovana, also known as “Tufa Town” for their characteristics; for example, the most ancient inhabited nucleus of Pitigliano was built on a tufa rock, which gives it a breathtaking appearance, as if it were suspended in a vacuum.
