The hot springs of Petriolo along the River Farma, sit on the border between the municipalities of Monticiano and Civitella Paganico, and are within close proximity to the capital of Tuscany, Florence. Gushing out from the banks of the River Farma torrent at around 43°C, the hot sulphurous waters keep the natural concavities topped up and allow for free, round-the-clock bathing. Off the beaten track, and right in the rural heart of Tuscany, this wild hot spring is bordered by venerable oak and chestnut trees. Positioned below ruined walls – the only remnants of the fortified ancient thermal baths – these historic pools, once frequented by the Etruscans and the Romans, provide the perfect place for a healthy dip.
