Visit the Maremma in Tuscany with public transportation

A friend of mine wrote me about his project to visit Tuscany with public transportation this summer. I thought that it was a great, ecological idea that is worth to be shared with Around Tuscany readers. To give him many options I asked to some friends of Maremma to help me and here are their solutions. Enjoy! Follonica, Massa Marittima and Monterotondo Marittimo with train and bus You can arrive at Follonica’s station, take a bus to Puntone di Scarlino, walk from Puntone to Cala Violina, go back to Follonica and then you can spend the night in Massa Marittima. The following day you can go to Monterotondo and visit “Le Biancane” Nature Park.

Orbetello and Argentario by train and bike Arrive in Orbetello with the train, take a bus to reach the village and then rent a bike in the centre. You can reach the Feniglia beach by bike along the bicycle path. You can stop at the harbour in Porto Ercole or arrive in Ansedonia by bike. You can go back trough the ancient Aurelia road on the bicycle path.
