The Maremma Park, with its range of hills descending towards the sea to reach the sandy beaches and cliffs, spreads from the mouth of the Ombrone River till it reaches Talamone, along 25km of the breathtaking Tuscan coastline surrounded by marshland, pinewood forests, tilled land and pastures. With the scent of aromatic herbs and colorful berries and the cry of its wildlife, the park greats visitors unveiling both its gentle and primitive nature.
