Create an itinerary including Cascate del Mulino
Plunge into Cascate del Mulino, a natural thermal bath located in a spa town that has been inhabited since ancient times. At this location, 800 l (211 gal) of water gush into a large natural pond every second, flowing over a waterfall and down a series of natural pools carved into the rock. The water is comfortably warm at about 37 C (98.6 F), and is said to possess healing properties exploited since before the Roman era. Though the water is believed to be healthy, it also smells a bit like eggs because of its high sulfur content, so don’t wear your best swimsuit. There are no real tourist facilities here, so bring your own towel, slippers, and bathrobe, as well as some drinking water and a light snack. Cascate del Mulino is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • Amazing!!! Beautiful hot spring pools that are well maintained and loved by locals and tourist’s alike. The pools are lined but small round limestone marbles that are a food massage. Pick a tier to soak and relax in! Slight sulphur smell but it quickly rinses off. A natural infinity edge pool with unbeatable views! Stunning and highly recommended stay!
  • Our visit was in early October 2022. We were able to find it easily using Google Maps’ directions. We were lucky to find a parking spot very close to the hot spring. This place was magical. I had an Injured knee and was walking with a crutch, but I was still able to navigate the terrain and find a warm pool to relax in. The water temperature was perfect, and the current of the water felt lovely as it passed over me. There were many people at the hot spring, but it did not feel crowded. People were very respectful of each other. Very peaceful. There is a cafe on site (I did not go there) and I saw signs for toilets. This is a spot that is definitely worth taking a trip to.
