One of the main highlights of our tour will be our visit to Saturnia, one of the amazing wonders of the Tuscan countryside, the 'Terme de Saturnia' or the 'Saturnia Hot Springs. The naturally warm water, heated by geothermal heat from the earth's interior volcanic areas, cascades into travertine terraced stone silk blue water ponds, creating a perfect atmosphere for us to marvel at the beauty of nature and just relax and enjoy.
Throughout this whole tour, we will explore some of the best wine regions in Italy and their world class wineries.
