Wednesday, 03 August 2022 08:00

Biancane Natural Park is a journey to the centre of the Earth in Tuscany. The park, which is near Monterotondo Marittimo in Tuscany, is an unusual and extraordinary area with numerous geothermal phenomena.

To explore this enchanted place there are guided tours organized by HMO Viaggi, and The Sense Experience Resort, which has placed the power of nature at the centre of its philosophy, is nearby the park. 

Craters and old wash houses

You can take a 30-minute tour to explore the park, starting from the centre of Monterotondo Marittimo. After about a hundred metres, you will find yourself in front of the Lagone Cerchiaio, a crater fed by thermal waters which are between 100 ° C and 150 ° C. You can see the old wash houses they built using characteristic octagonal bricks made in the furnaces of Vecchienne and dating back to the 1930s.

A longer tour lasting three hours

Crossing the path, you can admire limestone crystallizations and a terrace where water from the Chiorba spring flows. The walk then continues between walls that puff smoke and you will feel the overwhelming strength and energy of nature on your skin. There is also a longer tour from Biancane or Sasso Pisano which is 7.5 kilometres long and takes on average about three hours. Not to be missed is the well with boiling water, a magical and evocative place that, depending on the day, looks like a mouth from which a large amount of steam and water emerges at boiling temperatures. For these visits contact the HMO Viaggi agency.

Themed suites and two restaurants

The Sense Experience Resort has beautiful rooms and suites and is an ideal place to stay for holidays dedicated to well-being, peace and relaxation. The resort consists of five buildings with 112 comfort, deluxe and superior rooms and themed suites, as well as two-bedroom suites with sea views and outdoor Jacuzzis. The two restaurants are helmed by Executive Chef Franco Manfredi who uses local products to create traditional Tuscan dishes.
