The ideal itinerary begins on Giglio Island, heads to Orbetello and Grosseto before ending in Monte Argentario. This route offers wonderful landscapes and unspoilt nature: the Natural Park of Maremma (or Uccellina Park), a land where time flows as it once did, with butteri, Maremmana cattle, wild horses and the extraordinary wealth of animal life; the Argentario,with its coastal variety, from the sandy beaches in Giannella and Feniglia to rocky promontory. While you’re here, you must try Orbetello’s specialty of mullet bottarga and the fish caught off the Argentario, like “blond” shrimp from Porto Santo Stefano, ficamaschia (oily fish) and bonito. The area is also known for its panficato, a typical dessert from Giglio Island made with eggs and figs, and Maremmana meat, from wild boar to cow. For those who love a good glass of wine, this is where the Ansonica dell’Argentario is made, a white DOC with a lively flavour, and the Vermentino di Capalbio, another white DOC.
