What if it rains?

Even with a grey sky and a few drops of rain, the Maremma has plenty of emotions to offer! Sure, no day at the beach, but fear not, we have plenty of alternatives for every taste here below.

Visiting the villages is an excellent idea, both for couples and families.

Let’s start in Capalbio, easy and quick to get to using the state road Aurelia. Slip on some comfortable shoes and get the visit started!
Downtown can only be enjoyed by foot, entering from the double arched gate that is surmounted by a commemorative plaque from 1418, and by the Medici family crest from 1602. The original wooden and iron doors open up to an intertwining of small streets and lovely street corners. Don’t miss the original route of the patrol paths on the ramparts along the town’s crenellated city walls. Then, the gorgeous Piazza Magenta, as big as it is rich in colors and cultural summer events. Stay atop the walls till dusk, with an excellent glass of red wine, keeping your eyes on the hills which descend to the sea. We recommend a meat-based dinner in one of the typical restaurants there nearby.

Montemerano, a pearl of the Maremma, is one of the farthest away, but is certainly interesting. Considered one of Italy’s most beautiful towns, this gorgeous, medieval village is a labyrinth of roads and stone stairways, enhanced by pots of flowers in every color. Strolling through its small streets, suddenly you’ll find yourselves in Piazza del Castello and you’ll feel like you’re in a parallel world, seductive and alluring, suspended in time. Here, a photo is a MUST! Another “don’t miss” is the church of San Giorgio inside of which the painting la Madonna della Gattaiola by the Maestro di Montemerano can be admired. And, since you’ve come this far, don’t forget to taste the typical tripe dish Trippa Montemeranese enriched with nutmeg, cinnamon, fresh thyme, corn, cloves, served either with white beans or in a tomato sauce.

Prefer to stay seaside? Well, you cannot miss Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano, Monte Argentario’s two harbors! Porto Ercole, also known as one of Italy’s most beautiful towns, is one of the Maremma’s most ancient harbors, where the sea, which can be seen from anywhere in town, is the star. For lovers of beautiful landscapes and history, we recommend visiting Monte Argentario’s fortresses: Rocca Spagnola and Forte Stella, which you can visit for free when you contact the Ufficio Cultura di Porto Santo Stefano (Tel. 0564 811970).

Searching for some body and mental relaxation? Then the Convento dei Passionisti Argentario is just the thing for you: surrounded by nature, a peaceful place from which you can enjoy a view of Orbetello and the archipelago from above. Besides visiting the convent chapel, where, in 2000, Pope John Paul II stopped to pray, you can stay for lunch or dinner at the ‘La Sorgente’ refuge where, in the shadow of the trees, your body and your palate will be uplifted by tasting delicious dishes based on polenta, wild boar, mushrooms and much more …

Welcome to the Maremma, land to be discovered and enjoyed!
