The goal of a nice holiday is certainly rest but also the opportunity to live new experiences and discover interesting places.
What are your interests: art, fun, history, nature. In Maremma there are many different opportunities to satisfy your interests and allow you to live interesting experiences.
If you love art you can easily reach:
- in Capalbio ‘The Tarot Garden’. Inside the park you can stroll among large sculptures, created by Niki de Saint Phalle inspired by the style of Gaudì, which reproduce the allegorical figures of the Tarot: from the Magician to the Popess, from the Devil to Judgment. You will find yourself in a fantastic world where the shapes with ever-curved lines and the bright colors of the sculptures blend with the forest and the shapes of nature. Fun for young and old.
- in Seggiano ‘The Garden of Daniel Spoerri’. Inside this park there are more than 110 works created by Daniel Spoerri himself, a Swiss artist, and by many other artists whose sculptures have found an enchanting exhibition space here.
If you love history:
- the ‘Archaeological Park of Baratti and Populonia’, less than an hour from the estate, offers the opportunity to visit the Etruscan necropolis and the acropolis of Populonia, in the middle of the Mediterranean scrub with a splendid view of the Gulf of Baratti;
- while the ‘Archaeological Mines Park of San Silvestro’ in Campiglia Marittima, about 45 minutes away, offers you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the mining reality of these areas, retracing their history from the Middle Ages to more recent times.
If your interest is fun, especially with children, very interesting for a day in the open air is the experience that you can experience walking among the trees in the adventure park ‘Il Tasso Scatenato’ at the port of Scarlino.
For those who want to spend some of their time in nature, the Maremma Park, which extends from Principina a Mare to Talamone, is a vast protected area that descends from the Uccellina hills towards the coast, with sandy beaches and cliffs, passing through pine forests, marshes and fields and includes the mouth of the Ombrone. It is possible to visit the park in various ways, on foot, by bicycle but also by canoe, following different paths and itineraries. The access ticket can be purchased at the entrance to Alberese or directly online on the park’s website.
