Magical experience
Oct 2020 • Couples
Depending on when you visit Bagni SP the experience may differ. We visited the spot late October (low season) and came there in the morning hours (around 10 am) on a weekday to avoid any crowds. It was a very special experience indeed. We enjoyed one of the mini pools which had very nice warm water. Didn't even need to share it with anyone else - people kind of pick their own mini pools and stick to that. It definitely feels like one of the places to visit during colder months like in autumn or spring as it wouldn't feel as nice if outside temperature is hot and water is warm/hot.
If you are planning on visiting, I'd advice that you wear some trekking shoes which you are not afraid to get dirty - the road to the pools can be quite muddy and wet (it's a bit less so if you try to stick to high grounds as much as possible whilst walking to the pools). You'd also need slippers for bathing as you can't see what's beneath the water surface at all. For a towel - preferably use one not from hotel as the smell might stay on that one. On the note of smelliness, the pools smelled a little of the sulphur but it didn't distract from the experience overall. Also, water was surprisingly clean considering it's a public space - just the leaves, no plastic.
Last note is that you should try to use toilets before you arrive, the ones available at the top of the path are not very well maintained (though available if it's urgent so there's that).

Don't waste your time.

Looks amazing on the images etc but in reality it was a trek out to some dirty stream with smelly water and overcrowded. With so many other amazing places to go in Tuscany discount this one as a waste of time.

If don't want to miss, there are some tips to follow...
Sep 2019
Read many yuk reviews, between toilets and changing rooms none of those facilities are available… we thought about that too, but we wanted to enjoy these rare formations and not available everywhere, so we looked to bathe where the water gushes from the pipe by the rock to lay on or the little pools where can share for 5 people or less with own water flush… Parking close to here are all pay parking but there are a few free parking spots after the curve of the park (end of the village). This attraction is nice to see and not for the fussy.

P.S. The tips as per title are: 1. come in low season. 2. get there before 8:00 a.m. enjoy and leave when crowds are coming or after 6 p.m. when crowds leaved. 3. Bring trekking shoes (to walk downhill from street and returning uphill) and water shoes (don’t risk to hurt and slip) maybe walking sticks, apart of the towels etc. 4. Don’t climb up the rock (don’t ruin your holidays!) 5. Stay in a bed&breakfast or rent a place in the village, this is what we did.

Very disappointing
Sep 2019 • Couples
Overcrowded. Very loud people. Dogs in the pools. The place is dirty. People do not deserve a place that can be a slice of paradise for free. They just don’t appreciate. A small fee should be charged in order to keep the place civil and clean for everyone. So disappointing!

Cool to see, not really a swimming hole
Aug 2019 • Couples
The Fosso Bianco is a really rare rock formation, the white rock at the bottom of the site is an awesome sight, and on the way down, seeing all of the little pools formed by the natural springs is very enchanting. Being from Canada, we are used to seeing large rock formations and we have experienced natural hot springs, however, this was unlike any rock formation I had ever seen. I was under the impression from our host near Sovicille that this area was a swimming area, however, the water does not get very deep, and in many places is warm. I think it would be a neat place to take a dip in the low season, when the crowds are small and the water is warm. Overall, I would recommend to see the Fosso if you are in the area, but do not go too far out of your way to see it.

YUK...
Aug 2019 • Family
We came with our 2 teens. Our daughter jumps into any water and loved it, so did I until you think about it. Water is warm but is led by big pipes. I presume when you’re at the beginning of it all, the water is still fairly clean but the further you walk and choose a spot it’s not so clean as everybody has already been in it before. As it’s such a long way to walk back to the toilets I don’t believe that everybody goes out to go the toilet, seriously when you think about it, it’s disgusting. Especially when we walked back and somebody had a dog on a lead standing in the water. Yuk.

Great place for leisure and relaxation
Aug 2019 • Family
Beautiful place in the forest on the River. After leaving your car in the parking spot (for payment) you need to walk through the forest for few hundred meters until you reach the place called "White whale" which is created by the hot spring falling down from the rocks. You can really relax and enjoy nature. Normally is plenty of people but try in the morning or late evening.

Do not go!
Apr 2019
This is a tiny hot spring in a wooded area. There is lots of pay parking along the road, So there were hundreds of people, all looking at a river, one pool for about 10 people and a few little pools up on the side of the rock formation. There is only space for about 30 people maximum! Leave this site for locals, pay for a spa,
or go at 6:00 am!

I think I built this up too much!
Jun 2019 • Couples
I read a blog that waxed lyrical about this spot, so off we excitedly went. It’s definitely an interesting looking spot, with a succession of tiny thermal rock pools in which you can sit, small waterfalls... it’s pretty hard to explain, but visually really unique. But then ... it’s small, so once you’ve spent ten minutes wowing over the views, all that’s left to do is get in the waters. Because the pools are quite small, and it’s a popular spot, i couldn’t help but feel I was intruding on someone else’s bath time!! Also, on a hot and sunny day, the trees keep the pool shady, which some people would no doubt welcome, but if, like us, you enjoy the sun, it’s kind of a random way to spend an hour ... sat in a small rock pool with others, in the shade, sort of just sitting there, politely smiling at each other - haha! I think I missed the point of this one :))

Most beautiful waterfall and hot spring in toscany, even better than saturnia. Worth a visit! Even for a romantic bathing in the evening.
