SATURNIA AND AREA OF TUFF
The charming "Tuff kingdom" with its Etruscan settlements of small and medium size, spread along the area of the Fiora hills enriching the nature and colors of the Maremma.
It 'a large hilly area deriving from volcanic nature which manifests itself in copious gushing thermal waters, with environmental and historic features that make it unique in its kind.
The landscape is extraordinarily suggestive: tuff here and there surrounded by a thick, green vegetation; cliffs that fall vertically into the deep valley and in which there are ancient, mysterious tombs; moreover caves and tower houses that create a unique and unrepeatable landscape profile.
Here caldeacque of Terme di Saturnia (37.5 ° C.) are waiting for you for particularly pleasant and healthy baths all year round.
Important Etruscan traces can be found in Pitigliano and Poggio Buco (Statonia) and there are countless artistic and monumental remains scattered 'throughout the country, but concentrated especially in Sorano and Sovana.
In Sovana you can visit large monumental tombs as the most famous "Hildebrand", considered the masterpiece of all the tombs, which represents the passage from archaic times to the next to to Rome and its empire.
Protected and wrapped in thick vegetation are the rock tombs, discovered near Sorano and Vitozza, almost bare compared to other but equally interesting, which were most likely used for the breeding of pigeons or as incinerators and later, in Roman times and medieval, adapted to homes, barns and cellars.
