Experience unadulterated bliss as you enjoy a unique visit to one of the world’s most exclusive natural water springs
Hot Spring San Filippo & Val d'Orcia region
The day trip will start at the station of Florence. The driver/guide will be there to pick you up at 10:00am at the beginning of the platform number 16 in Santa Maria Novella central station in Florence. Then he will drive you straight to the 'Bagni di San Filippo' Natural Spring which is approximately two hours from Florence. The springs at San Filippo are gorgeous! The calciferous formations, waterfalls and small pools of hot water surrounded by the woods just outside the small town of Bagni San Filippo in the Val d’Orcia will seem to take you to another world. The area is quite long, but the first pools you find along the path near the road are shallow and therefore do not maintain their heat for long. If you follow the path further into the woods, you reach the massive formation of calcium and waterfall that has earned the nickname of the “White Whale”.The springs surge out of the ground nearby, coming out at 48°C. Here you can enjoy and hang out for 5 hours in full immersion of relaxation.
During the 3 hours you can even decide to book some of the several treatments at the Spa (Terme San Filippo). Terme San Filippo combines all their services among a large park with steaming hot water canals and the typical vegetation of the Val D’Orcia. Thermal treatments consist of baths, mud baths and various kinds of aerosol inhalation. The spa offers various treatments for face and body and a line of beauty products. Around 5:30pm it is advisable to have a quick shower at the Spa center to get ready for the evening when the bilingual friendly driver will take you for dinner at 6:00 pm with three courses (antipasto, pasta or meat with vegetable, dessert, house wine and coffee) in one of the local traditional and authentic Tuscany Trattorias. Here you will enjoy a set menu Tuscany Dinner.
Alternatively, you can choose to spend 3 hours at the hot spring without treatments and ask the local driver to drive you in Montalcino for an amazing wine tasting (not included) and visiting of the village.
The departure is at 8:00pm back to the same station in Florence.
