Grosseto is a country of grassland, forests, beaches and swamps. Those who travel to the Tuscan province of Grosseto with the same 77,000 inhabitants in the capital will also be immediately confronted with the Maremma. Grosseto is the capital of the gates of the hilly hinterland, this unique landscape of Maremma. At the same time the Maremma is the coastal landscape which marshes and pastures once were the home of wild horses and cattle. These marshes are mostly drained now. So people try to determine farming, olive groves, cattle breeding and tourism in accordance with the environmental life. Originally the only land to the South of Grosseto was left. The estuary landscape of the Ombrone, the range in the Monti dell'Uccellina and its rocky coast are considered to be the nature reserve today. From the center of the park interesting excursions usually start. In winter migratory birds lay an intermediate stop in the Maremma.
Now Punta Ala is the most exclusive resort that is very popular among the golf-players because of its praised 18-Loch-Patzes is on everyone's lips. Further to the South there is a small town on the lagoon of Ortobello (beautiful garden) and a pretty harbor Porto Santo Stefano, from where ferries to the island and the same nature reserve Isola del Giglio start.
The environment and the closing of alternative accommodations are defined by tourism. Many of the resorts here are very child-friendly. Many trips will be offered on horseback. Children's eyes are much to discover in the Maremma.
Those who despite the respiratory beautiful scenery escape not entirely from the culture of Italy can find sufficient attractions in the fortifications surrounding Medici town of Grosseto. As an alternative to the provincial capital Castiglione della Pescaia offers an extended 7 km sandy beach with a shady spot in the adjacent pine forest besides typical old Italian flair.
