Tomorrow is my birthday and I decided to spend the entire weekend celebrating in Maremma. I love this area of Tuscany, because it’s really stunning and wild with incredible landscapes, museums and villages.

A bit about Maremma

Maremma is located in Southern Tuscany stretching between the provinces of Livorno and Grosseto. It counts beautiful villages from North to South, great sea and beaches and breathtaking landscapes. It’s divided into three large areas that are:

Maremma

Maremma

Maremma Livornese or Northern Maremma – it covers most of the province of Livorno and stretches from the Metalliferous hills to the Gulf of Follonica.

Maremma – this is the heart of the region and covers the area of Grosseto and surroundings.

Southern Maremma – it stretches from Grosseto to Lazio and its the most representative area of Maremma.

I really love this area and I love spending time here. So this summer I decided to discover a new part of it visiting the area of Pitigliano and surroundings.

I’m going to stay for two nights in Pitigliano at the lovely b&b Casa dei Carrai, owned by Cinzia who runs the interesting Italian blog Maremma al femminile. She’ll guide me and my family to her spectacular city, located on top of a tuff hill that was beloved by the Medici family. It’s also known as the Little Jerusalem, for the historical presence of a large Jewish community.

I’m going to visit Sovana and its medieval center perfectly preserved,and the medieval Sorano, also located on top of a tuff hill. Together with Pitigliano they’re called the Tuff cities and are renowned all around the world for their stunning beauty.

I then aim to visit the Archaeological park Città del Tufo and the Vie Caveor Cavoni, that are an impressive road network linking an Etruscan necropolis and several settlements in the area.

Then I move to the lovely three star Hotel Melograno in Montemerano to visit this beautiful village and Saturnia, together with its thermal baths. I aiming visiting also Villa Acquaviva and their vineyards to see the harvest hopefully. They produce the Morellino di Scansano and the Bianco di Pitigliano.
