Maremma_Toscana; a visit to beautiful nature for few days
by Venetia Kapernekas
Few days at the house in Maremma/Toscana with my lovely friend Ariana, enjoy the beautiful nature and the surroundings; my favorite and beloved place in Europe;
Some of my day visits at Pitigliano, Manciano, Saturnia terme, Sorano, swimming at the Capalbio beach, or at Talamone, Gianella and Ansedonia, or driving around monte Angentario and Porto Ecole and a drink some afternoons at Il Pellicano.
The Maremma region is an extensive area of Italy bordering the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Seas. It comprises part of southwestern Tuscany – Maremma Livornese and Maremma Grossetana (the latter in the province of Grosseto) – and part of northern Lazio (in the province of Viterbo and Rome on the border of the region).
Maremma still maintains the artistic legacy of the region but is blessed with an unforgettable natural beauty, romantic scenery and a history which dates back to the Etruscan and Roman civilizations. Often neglected for the larger cities of Tuscany, the Maremma has remained sparsely populated, with much of the area covered with thick forests of chestnuts and beeches and sprawling green fields of olive groves and vineyards. The villages and towns situated amongst this natural paradise are charmingly small and lovingly maintained. Pieces of history, these beautiful communities transport you back to the grand and fascinating past of Italy, appearing exactly as they did in the Renaissance, the Middle Ages and the centuries that preceded them.
