Looking for something unique to do from the port of Civitavecchia? Something completely different from going to Rome? Our private shore excursion to the thermal baths at Saturnia is just the ticket!
This private day trip is designed for guests seeking a day of total relaxation and rejuvenation. In the thermal waters of Saturnia and the splendid countryside of Tuscany you can unwind and recharge as you soak up some sun and drink in the beauty.
If you have an interest in history, you will be captivated by this part of Italy that was populated by the mysterious and fascinating Etruscans before the rise of Ancient Rome. Set in a part of Tuscany steeped in a mystical past, the villages of Pitigliano, Sorano, and Sovana will give you a glimpse into times long gone by.
Features of this day trip to the Saturnia thermal springs:
After a 1-hour drive North through the Roman and Tuscan countryside, we’ll arrive at the legendary thermal baths of Saturnia, which have been in use since ancient times.
Legend tells how the Roman god Saturn, furious with human beings for their incessant fighting, hurled a bolt of lightning to Earth, forming a crater from which warm water began to gush. The water spilled across the land, enveloping mankind and eventually calming their warring souls. This enchanting place, well known to the Etruscans and the Ancient Romans for its regenerating powers, still bears the name of the god who started it all.
The sulphurous waters rising from Saturnia’s thermal springs carry therapeutic properties together with extraordinary sensations. Whoever steps into this water can never forget the feeling of well-being and calm that comes from the warmth (37.5 C / 99.5 F) and the verdant surroundings of the Tuscan Maremma.
The Maremma is also a great place for good eating and sites of historical and archeological importance. Pitigliano, Sorano, and Sovana are not too far away and can be added to the agenda to give you a richer experience.

Is the driver a guide?
Our English speaking drivers are NOT licensed guides. In order to provide you with the best-in-class service, our English speaking driving guides have been trained to offer our clients a nice overview with information regarding the major highlights avoiding the expensive charges of hiring a private guide. Due to strict Italian laws & regulations that protect officially licensed guides, our driving guides can comment and explain the sights only from inside the vehicle, but are not allowed to do so once they are outside the vehicle. They are regularly licensed instead to chauffeur the public. We highly recommend that you never book with any touring company that does not make this clear.
Does the driver go with us inside the monuments?
No, only a licensed guide is authorized to accompany you during the visit of sights. Our driver will drop you off close to the sights but will stay with the vehicle for the duration of your visit.

Is gratuity included in the price?
Tips are never included in our quotes. We think that a tip shouldn’t be included in the rate otherwise it would be a tax!!! Once in Italy do not feel as though you have to tip everyone because someone told you to. Tip only if you really liked the service.
