Bagni di San Filippo – sulphur baths

July 2016

At the end of July we went to Bagni San Filippo, east of the Monte Amiata. Several small thermal springs flow together in the Fosso Bianco, where it is possibile to take a relaxing warm bath (gratis!….). At the end you find the Balena Bianca (white whale), a huge snow white rock completely covered  with calcareous sediments. …more photo’s on facebook

Short hike from Cala Violina to Cala Martina

Sunday 12 February 2017


We left immediately after lunch and headed for Cala Violina, situated between Punta Ala and Follonica. We parked our car and started hiking first through the Mediterranean woods and after along the coastline, enjoying the stunning view of the Gulf of Follonica on one hand and Cala Violina (foto) on the other. The trail is about 5 km and quit easy just slightly sloping. More photo’s on facebook……
