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, but don't even think about going in the afternoon (August). Even evenings are still crowded. Right after sunrise is where it's at, you can easily find your own private pool. Also, main parking is closed so just leave the car at the secondary area towards the hotel (paid) or along the road like locals.
  • It is so beautiful and the water temperature is warm. I went there during the day and evening, both were great. This place show us how nature can be perfect. However, it is so natural that you can see some red fly larvae in the water. For me it was ok, but for some people it could be an issue.
