Archaeology, Museums, Medieval Villages and Spas

The Tuscan Maremma still clearly bears the traces of its important past in  the Etruscan tombs of Roselle, the Città del Tufo Archaeological Park in Sorano, the  Etruscan Sunken Road in Ansedonia, and in  Grosseto Museum and Orbetello Museum.

Other unique sights include the medieval village of Pitigliano, known as the little Jerusalem, perched atop the cliffs of tufa stone, the Spanish Mill in Orbetello Lagoon, the evocative lanes of Porto Ercole dominated by the fortifications built to defend the promontory (the sixteenth-century Forte Filippo, the Torre del Mulinaccio and the imposing Forte Stella).

The Lagoon Aquarium in Talamone and the aquarium in Porto Santo Stefano tell stories of the sea.

In Capalbio, the Giardino dei Tarocchi is a magical garden featuring 22 amazing sculptures covered with glittering coloured glass, mirrors and ceramics. Only 60 km away, the renowned  Saturnia hot springs  with sulphurous water at 37° may be enjoyed at the Cascate del Mulino or in the luxurious spa.

The Green Tuscan Maremma

The WWF Oasis of Orbetello (wetlands of international interest) and  Duna di Feniglia Nature Reserve are perfect ecosystems for watching and photographing deer, foxes, herons, flamingoes, spoonbills (which winter here) while walking or cycling.

Parco della Maremma offers a choice of 11 itineraries through ancient pine groves, pasturelands of Maremma cattle, beaches and rocky coves to be explored on foot, in a horse-drawn carriage, on horseback, by canoe or by bicycle (there’s a cycle path all the way to the sea).

Excursions on foot and by bicycle

The Argentario Peninsula enjoys a mild climate with many days of sun a year, encouraging people to enjoy the outdoors even in fall and winter.

In a setting of such natural beauty, there are many  hiking and mountain biking paths forming beautiful itineraries between the sea and the hills, cultivated fields and beaches.
