Maremma for beginners

Beach, countryside and hills in one area

The Maremma — crystal-clear waters, countryside filled with Tuscan cowboys, natural oases and wild hillsides. Numerous trails cover the most beautiful parts of the area and are not just for hikers, but bikers and horseback riders as well. Sports are a great way to come into contact with the land, allowing visitors — especially beginners — to discover it more fully.

Follow itineraries in the Colline Metallifere and enjoy some of Tuscany’s most beautiful medieval towns like Roccastrada, Montieri and Monterotondo Marittimo, all set in the middle of woods and unspoiled natural landscapes.

Beaches and hidden bays abound on the Tuscan coast from Scarlino to Castiglione della Pescaia. If you are looking for Tuscany’s most classic landscapes, head to the area between Ombrone and La Fiora.
Want to get away from the crowds? Then the Valle dell’Ombrone is the place for you. Its numerous natural oases covered in thick Mediterranean brush and home to various fauna species are a dream come true for nature lovers.

The Monte Amiata is a unique destination with myriad treasures of its own: ancient villages, nature reserves and sporting activities for all.

Don’t miss the fortresses at Pitigliano and Sorano, or the Sovana Etruscan necropolis while you’re in the Maremma. All are built into the local rock, a unique characteristic that makes a trip to these ancient towns a must.

Finally, don’t miss the opportunity to take a spin through the magical regional parks of the Maremma and Argentario.
