Itinerari di Maremma


Maremma Toscana:  Costa d’Argento – Promontorio dell’Argentario

The promontory is connected to the shoreline by the natural landfills of Giannella and Feniglia and the man-made one connecting it to the town of Orbetello. The two inhabited centres, Porto S. Stefano and Porto Ercole, once mainly dedicated to fishing, are now renowned seaside resorts and ports. The Argentario, which gives its name to this section of coast, is a green mountain reaching up from the waves. Once an island, it became connected to the mainland by way of the tombolos of Feniglia and Giannella. It is now an environmental and seaside vacation paradise. In Porto Santo Stefano the boat-builders still pass down the noble art of building wooden boats. Two small islands stand off the coast. The larger, the Island of Giglio, has a wild granite coast,  broken here and there by cultivated terraces. The smaller, the Island of Giannutri, was dedicated to the moon in ancient times and an Imperial Roman villa is said to hold the secret of a mysterious love story. The dense Mediterranean scrub climbs along the sheer cliffs that hide the charming coves of the Argentario from view until it reaches the Hermitage of the Passionists and the summit where the eye sweeps from the Amiata to the mountains of Lazio and on to the distant silhouettes of Montecristo, Elba and Corsica.

Maremma Toscana: Isola del Giglio

The charming town of Giglio Porto is nestled along a cove between two piers and backed by a terraced hill planted in vineyards. From here, a narrow, winding road climbs up to Giglio Castello. The village has kept its original fortified appearance, surrounded by high medieval walls complete with towers. The Rocca Pisana looms over a maze of narrow streets, covered by arches, dark under-passages, steep staircases and old houses, crowded on top of each other. Campese is located on the island's western coast. It is in the centre of a bay, bordered by a wide, sandy beach that is enhanced by the presence of an imposing tower "Torre del Campese".
Tourists and visitors are drawn to this granite island,  by the  beauty of nature, by the colours, the flavours. High pink cliffs drop sharply to the sea, broken only by small coves, bays and the large, sandy beach at Campese.  The flora and fauna are particularly interesting and the Mediterranean scrub blends with olive groves and perfumed vineyards. It is from these vineyards that the esteemed white wine, Ansonica is produced. 

Maremma Toscana: Isola di Giannutri

The island was called Artemis by the Greeks and Diana by the Romans because of it is shaped in the form of a bow, favoured by this huntress goddess. It still holds its historic fascination and the environment remains untouched.
Three limestone knolls, Capel Rosso, Monte Mario and Poggio Cannone, outline it against the sky. The only inlets interrupting a coastline of steep cliffs rising sharply from the sea are Golfo Spalmatoi and Cala Maestra, the only two places where mooring is permitted.

Maremma Toscana: Capalbio

Located in the far south of the Maremma, Capalbio is clinging to the top of a wooded hill, Capalbio is the first castle city in the Maremma, located at the border to Lazio drawn by the Chiarone River and the old Papal Customs. Passing through the narrow medieval streets within the city walls you can see the Arco Santo topped by a bust of the Emperor Hadrian and the  Church of San Nicola.
