Bagno Vignoni is only half an hour away from the the village Bagni san Filippo, and it has a similar pas. Bagno Vignoni has been known since Medieval times for its celebrated piazza d’acqua, its main central square has a pool filled with hot springs water.
It is very picturesque and unspoilt. The bath itself is not suitable for swimming, but you can still enjoy the benefits of the town's natural hot spring water, a hundred meters downhill at the Parco dei Mulini. It's well worth a visit as it's so unusual and unspoilt.

Bagno Vignoni, Parco dei Mulini


In addition to the whitewashed pools in the hills of the Parco naturale dei Mulini, the water from the springs of Bagno Vignoni is also used for the swimming pool of Hotel Posta Marcucci, a special place with a rich past. The history of the Marcucci family dates back to the mid-19th century when they ran a grocery store here in Bagno Vignoni, which also offered a postal service. In the 1950s, the current hotel structure was built on an old vineyard. The hotel has 35 rooms. But you don't have to be a hotel guest to use the swimming pool: you can buy a day pass for around € 15. From the unique bath of travertine stone, you have a breathtaking view over the Val d'Orcia while bathing in the healing waters.
The healing waters of these pools come from the ground at a temperature of 49 ° C. There are two swimming pools, surrounded by lawns and beautiful gardens where the trees provide plenty of shade. There are two baths. In the first of the two, the water stabilizes at a temperature between 35 and 38 ° C, in the second at a temperature between 28 and 32 ° C.

Cascata del Diborrato

Le Caldane are thermal water baths near Colle Val d’Elsa with hot water springs boasting therapeutic properties known since Etruscan-Roman times. The ancient spas are still used today by the local people who seek respite from the humid summer weather. The water that flows from the springs joins that of the Elsa river which is replenished right here in Colle Val d’Elsa [2]. The spas were partly destroyed by the sienese troops in 1260 and partially rebuilt in mid-400.


Le terme di Sorano costituiscono una serie di sorgenti termali situate a circa 3–4 km a sud di Sorano, nell'Area del Tufo. In epoche più recenti fu completamente abbandonato, andando incontro ad un lunghissimo periodo di degrado.
All'inizio del nuovo millennio, una serie di lavori ha portato al recupero e alla valorizzazione delle numerose sorgenti, oltre alla costruzione di un moderno stabilimento[3].
