The Tuscan Maremma
The Maremma area of Tuscany is one of the least densely populated areas in Italy. It is also one of the richest agricultural areas in the country.
The Maremma has a lot to offer its guests, and is sure to please both lovers of art and history as well as nature and sport.
These are just a few suggestions for some of the many itineraries in the Maremma using Il Passo degli Ulivi as a starting point.
Discover the Etruscans
It is well worth spending a day exploring the many ruins of the Etruscan civilization (predecessor to the Roman Empire) that survive in the Maremma, particularly those around Roselle, Pitigliano, Sorano and Sovana.
Discover the parks
The Maremma boasts one of the most important nature parks in Italy: the Parco Naturale della Maremma, also known as the Parco dell'Uccellina. The park features a beautiful sandy beach and many hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulties.
Discover the beaches
The Maremma has a beautiful coastline with some of the cleanest waters in the country. Besides the beach in the Maremma Nature Park, the towns of Marina di Grosseto and Castiglione della Pescaia are all under an hour's drive from Il Passo degli Ulivi. Just a few minutes more will take you to other noted beach areas like Punt'Ala, Talamone and Monte Argentario.
Discover the hot springs
Il Passo degli Ulivi is just 15 minutes away from the Petriolo Thermal Baths, natural hot springs that are open to the public. In less than an hour you can reach the larger and more famous hot springs at Saturnia.
