Do you know Tuscany in general but miss its most natural area? We recommend the Tuscan Maremma.: 5 things to see even in winter.
In this period, where most businesses are closed, it is not easy to move and organize something.
But the Italian territory, in each of its regions, holds wonders that are often forgotten.
It might be the right time when you can finally see those wonderful corners you have been longing for, just a few kilometers from home: take the opportunity to visit the Tuscan Maremma, Valdichiana, Casentino and, even further north, Garfagnana and Lunigiana. So here are five things to see even in winter in the Tuscan Maremma.
Visiting the Maremma in the province of Grosseto means discovering an area that is bounded to the north by the Gulf of Follonica and to the south by the border with Lazio.
In this strip of land overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, villages, mountains, rivers, valleys and isolated farmhouses alternate: you can visit the Grosseto Maremma in every aspect!
So let's start from the northernmost region all the way down to the municipality of Capalbio.
1. Scarlino and surroundings: a flat area that surrounds Scarlino, a village gathered within the ancient medieval walls and known for the Aldobrandesque fortress. From here you can reach nearby Massa Marittima.
2. Grosseto and neighboring villages. An important and historic municipality - that of Grosseto - rich in culture, local traditions and good food.
You could visit its center or move on and reach the village of Castiglion della Pescaia in a few kilometers.
3. Monte Argentario: a promontory on the sea from which the islands of Giglio and Giannutri can be seen. A mountain that began as an island and-thanks to sea currents-is surrounded by two tombolos, Giannella and Feniglia, and the Orbetello Lagoon.
4. Fiora River. Tuscany doesn't miss a thing, and following the Fiora River can become a multisensory adventure: the hues and smells of nature meet the villages you find along the way, such as Santa Fiora.
Also recommended are Castell'Azzara, Semproniano, Sorano, Manciano and Pitigliano. Stop to eat at one of the many traditional food places along the way and you won't regret it!
In the municipality of Braccagni is located Le Versegge - Resort & Restaurant, a farmhouse nestled in the Tuscan Maremma, not far from the sea and Grosseto.
From here you can easily reach Siena and Pisa, but also close to the spas and Monte Amiata.
What if you thought of spending some healthy relaxation isolated in the green Tuscan countryside, where the only noise is birdsong?
Even winter has its magic, and you could take advantage of a pleasant stay in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma to rest from the stress accumulated during these months.
Le Versegge is also an agritourism with an outstanding restaurant: the Re Sugo Restaurant. So there is no need to look for a place to eat well, because with "the window to the Maremma of taste "-as the restaurant is often called-the quality of ingredients and cuisine is a guarantee.
To spend a weekend away from home, in which we were forced to stay for a long time, it could be the ideal solution.
