Terme di Petriolo Vacation Packages
Petriolo Thermal Bath is near the town of Monticiano, in the province of Siena, situated on the road that connects Siena to Grosseto. The environment is natural and enchanting - there's a forest made of oaks, holms and strawberry trees. You can still admire Roman tombs and the ancient medieval bath, made of 4 rooms. Petriolo Thermal Bath is the only remaining fortified bath (dated 1404). Above of the present bath lies a Romanesque church and a small bell tower (1276). The sulphurous water gushes from the springs and falls in the river Farma with a series of waterfalls and pools carved into the rocks where you can swim. The particularity of Petriolo is that in the same place you have two completely different situations: at one side the hot waters of the thermal spring and on the other the cold waters of the river Farma. So Petriolo is very indicated for those who suffer circulatory disorders. Access is free. The water is salt-sulfate-bicarbonate-alkaline-sulphurous hyper thermal (43 ° C) and contains a very high rate of sulfur and carbon. It is used for baths, mud, inhalations, facial masks very effective in treating skin diseases, respiratory problems, orthopedic and rheumatism. The place is enchanting both in summer and winter, but it could be very crowded especially on Saturday night.
