Grosseto

From the green countryside to the crystalline sea, parks and invaluable archaeological sites, Grosseto is a man-sized city that offers lots of services.
The city centre is completely encircled by a periphery wall, amazingly well preserved over the centuries. The periphery walls have surrounded the city since the 12th century. Destroyed and rebuilt several times, it was in 1574 that Francesco I de’ Medici undertook the construction of the “hexagonal walls” based on the design by Baldassarre Lenci. Still today the walls follow a hexagonal pattern with arrow-shaped pentagonal bastions on the wall corners for defence. The service and storage areas are still preserved, while the open spaces and pathways are laid with herringbone brick.

Parco della Maremma

The Natural Park of the Maremma, the first National park as recognized by the EU, stretches over 100 square kilometres of the Tuscan Maremma shore, from the Talamone promontory to the mouth of the Ombrone river and to the confines of the Via Aurelia inlands. The Natural Park of the Maremma is a reference point for an increasing number of people, thanks to its rich typically Mediterranean flora and fauna and fascinating historical elements.
Within the park it is possible to admire nature in its full splendour, or to choose one of the many trails, according to season, length and difficulty. Visit itineraries can be undertaken by a single person, or in groups with a guide. It is also possible to visit the park by horse, carriage, bike or canoe. Any visit to the park will undoubtedly be pleasurable and relaxing.

Marina di Grosseto

Marina di Grosseto is a peaceful seaside town which boasts a complete array of facilities including a modern marina. Its fine sand beach, which becomes almost white in certain spots, is 150 metres wide and gently slopes toward the water, making it ideal for even the littlest visitors.
Its shore is characterized by intermittent developed and undeveloped areas and is crowned by the dense Tombolo Pine Forest. The Marina di Grosseto beach offers lots of opportunities for aquatic sports such as surfing, kite surfing and wind surfing.

Castiglione della Pescaia

Castiglione della Pescaia, an ancient village overlooking the sea, located between Punta Ala and Marina di Grosseto, is a noted touristic and seaside resort.
Castiglione della Pescaia has extremely ancient origins: the first inhabitants of the area date back to around 60,000 years ago, while the first urban settlement was located in Vetulonia, the ancient city founded by the Etruscans near Lake Prile (which does not still exist today). The Romans, on the other hand, founded the village of Salebrone, famous for its mild climate, fish-filled lake and surrounding area filled with wild game. After the fall of the Roman Empire and the barbarian invasions, in 962 Castiglione was sold to Pisa by Ottone the first of Sassonia, the Emperor of Germany. Pisa took advantage of its riches and did not properly take care of the sand infiltration of the harbour Lake Prile, which later became stagnant and consequentally the cause of increasing malaria outbreaks. The Natural Reserve Diaccia Botrona is also located in Castiglione della Pescaia, a natural oasis and wetland that covers part of the plains that stretch from Grosseto to the coast of Castiglione della Pescaia.

Arcipelago Toscano

According to legend, the Goddess Venus, when she emerged from the waters of the Tyrrhenian sea, dropped the seven-pearl necklace she wore around her neck.
These pearls that fell into the water are said to be the seven islands of the Tuscan Archipelago. The Archipelago is formed by a group of seven principal islands, the largest being Elba Island, followed by Giglio Island and Capraia, Giannutri, Pianosa, Montecristo, Gorgona and Formiche islands.

Vetulonia

Vetulonia is the ancient Etruscan city that lent Rome its fasces and axes symbols. Vetulonia reached the peak of its splendour between the 7th and 6th centuries BC, and still to this day conserves traces of its ancient power. After the golden age of the Etruscans, the city of Vetulonia began to decline. Of the imposing Etruscan periphery walls only traces remain in the near vicinity of the current day town where the Etruscan necropolis is located. The “Diavolina” and “Petrera” tombs are among the most notable, located near the entrance to the road that leads to Buriano. In the town it is also possible to visit the civic archaeological museum that houses notable archaeological finds. The panorama which surrounds the town is also splendid for its gentle rolling hills.

Pitigliano

Pitigliano is a graceful and picturesque village located in the Maremma. It is unique in that is was entirely built on a mass of volcanic rock, also known as “tufo” (tuff), a dominant geological element in the zone. This fact makes it one of the most fascinating sites in the “area del tufo” (tuff area). The presence of the Etruscans is known by their ancient necropolis and most importantly by the “Vie Cave”, a road carved entirely out of the “tufo” (tuff). In various moments up until the 17th century Pitigliano changed from being part of the Aldobrandeschi feud to the Orsini county, until it became part of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany of the Medici family, and later the Lorraine family. Pitigliano is located in an area rich with natural and historical-archaeological elements, and therefore represents an ideal location for unforgettable day-trips and excursions.

Massa Marittima

Massa Marittima is a beautiful medieval village located on a hill 380 metres above sea-level approximately 15 km from the Golfo del Sole. Surrounded by the Maremma countryside, Massa Marittima is known for its historical, naturalistic and artistic treasures passed down from a prosperous past.
Noted for its copper and silver mines, mined until the year 1300 and then reactivated in 1830 until 1970, the village still maintains many of its medieval aspects. The “Balestro del Girifalco”, a battle between the crossbowmen of the town’s neighbourhoods, is also a historical recreation.
