Relax at Natural Hot Springs 

If you are a little bit more adventurous you can try the free and natural hot springs of Saturnia, in the south part of Tuscany. They are a natural wonder but there aren’t all the comforts that can offer a spa ( like showers or locker rooms ). If you are near Florence instead you can try Asmana Wellness Center, a beautiful complex with a lot of different hot swimming pools, Turkish baths, and saunas. 

Here you can also enjoy a delicious gourmet light lunch or dinner ( they’re open until midnight ) or have a special drink sitting inside the indoor or outdoor swimming pool ( Asmana offers a real bar inside the water ).
