Enjoy the abundant riches of Tuscany’s Maremma region; wine tasting, medieval hilltowns and artistic gardens. Our driver will guide you around excellent local wineries including the Antinori family’s Le Mortelle and Tenuta di Monteverro where the red clay soil, sun and sea combine for some exceptional Vermentino.
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.
