Enjoy the abundant riches of Tuscany’s Maremma region; wine tasting, medieval hilltowns and artistic gardens.
The Tarot Garden created by the modern artist Niki De Saint Phalle consists of a series of huge sculptures depicting the twenty-two Greater Arcana featured in the original pack. By contrast nearby Capalbio is a medieval village, surrounded by a double wall and crowned by the imposing Aldobrandesca Fortress.
Delightful Pitigliano rises out of the Tufa rock amidst beautiful countryside, has a labyrinth of medieval lanes, a Jewish quarter and fascinating Etruscan ruins. More sights are in nearby Sovana with a 12th century cathedral and Etruscan tomb, and Sorano with its Orsini fortress. Then dip in Saturnia’s healing sulphuric waterfalls which gush out at 37 degrees.
