Do you love to travel and can't wait to take a trip to Tuscany? One of the most fascinating and evocative areas of the region is undoubtedly the Maremma, an area to be discovered!
There are locations literally "out of time" that will leave you breathless and dreamy-eyed. Not to mention the traditional flavors: your mouth is watering just thinking about it!
Are you ready, then, to take a plunge into the past in the name of new discoveries? Then off we go!
"But from afar/ peace say to the heart your hills/ with the fading mists and the green plain/ laughing in the morning rains." This is how Giosuè Carducci recalled his land in Traversando la Maremma Toscana.
Places of pure magic remembered even by the best Italian writers.
And while in those days carriages and horses were the most popular means of traveling through the enchanting Tuscan hills, now one cannot help but travel by one's own means.
But let's see together how to get to Maremma and what to see by car or on a nice motorcycle.
Definitely, four-wheelers are the ideal solution for those who like comfort. You can move around both day and night without worrying about temperatures.
But also load the whole family on board and take the little ones "for a stroll."
So among the best itineraries you find: the Uccellina Park, the Flora Valley with the Rocca Aldobrandesca in Manciano, Montemerano with the frescoes of the church of San Giorgio.
Saturnia's thermal baths also deserve a mention with the free admission Mulino waterfalls and 37°C water (ideal in cold weather!).
You can then move to the sea and stop at Orbetello or the Argentario coastline by taking the Strada Panoramica.
Or choose to visit the Etruscan Necropolis of Sovana, pop into Pitigliano, carved entirely out of tuff, and land in Grosseto to see the cathedral and archaeological museums. In short, there is no shortage of choice!
Here is an increasingly fashionable trend: cruising around Tuscany on a motorcycle. Referred to by many as the Wild West of the region, the Maremma offers the most beautiful turns (on the road!) a driver can dream of. The sense of freedom, the wind on the face, the smells of an almost dreamlike land are just some of the favorite elements of two-wheelers. And there is no comparison that holds for those who decide to feel free and "go on an adventure"! So to combine the Tuscan countryside with a passion for motorcycles, here is what to do to discover the most beautiful roads in Maremma.
To be an explorer of unusual places, it is necessary to rest well and in peace. In between discoveries, then, choosing a good resort where you can sleep and recover your energy could make all the difference for the next few days' travels.
Nestled in the heart of Maremma, near Braccagni (GR), is a luxury farmhouse ideal for reaching the most sought-after destinations. Among villages, cities of art and unspoiled nature Le Versegge Resort&Restaurant is the perfect place from which to travel through an extraordinary land.
And to taste some good traditional dishes? No distance to travel! You can in fact go to Re Sugo, right there, literally a stone's throw from the resort. What are you waiting for? It's time to hit the road!
