Medicinal baths and thermal baths in Tuscany
There are at least a dozen spas in Tuscany. The offer is varied and essentially conservative, i.e. the usual water applications, mud baths and special programs for fitness, rehabilitation, etc.
So it's difficult to highlight a single bathroom - it's probably better to first narrow down the bathrooms regionally. In our presentation we limit ourselves to an introduction to selected pools. Unfortunately, a complete presentation is not possible because some pools no longer exist, or other pools are difficult to classify and it is rather unlikely that this is actually a themed business acts. You can find an overview of the pools on a map below. You can click the links on the map for more information.
There is the northern region with the counties Pisa and Lucca. There are a few baths here, all of which are close to the coastal region (Costa Versilia). To the east, in the mountains of the province of Pistoia, lies the most famous seaside resort, Montecatini TermeAccording to current knowledge, German health insurance companies pay for treatments here under certain conditions. In the immediate vicinity of Montecatini there is another seaside resort, Monsummano Terme with the Grotta Giusti Terme (click here for map view).
(with "bathing resort" here is meant "spa", regardless of the kilometer-long coast with countless well-known holiday resorts)
Further south along the coast in the greater area Livorno is one of the most famous baths, the Terme di Venturina. From there you go eastwards into the area of the greater Siena area. There are several baths in the province of Siena, of which the most famous is Bagno San Filippo (click here for map view). And finally, even further south in the greater Grosseto area, lies the famous spa Saturnia (click here for map view) with its sulphurous water.
Where are thermal baths in Tuscany?
Tuscany is generally known for good water, so it is quite similar to the German low mountain range, but it is surprising how diverse the spa offer is.
It is important for the unwary traveler to know that most "developed" hot springs belong to hotels and similar, mostly private, establishments. Here, use is usually subject to a fee and is bound by the rules of the respective provider. Sources that can be used free of charge usually do not have sufficient infrastructure (showers, toilets, etc.). In addition, the parking spaces at the entrances are usually subject to a fee in the high season!
Analogous to the selection on the map below, you will find a list of the thermal baths as links:
A suggestion from Toskanatour:
A holiday home from www.Traumtoskana.de in the heart of Tuscany in the Val d'Elsa, that is the Chianti wine region, from where you can explore the individual baths in a star shape. Regardless of this recommendation, one can basically assume that a spa can be reached within a few kilometers from any location, both in coastal regions and in the inner parts of the country.
