Near to Park of Maremma

 

Agriturismo Magnaboschi is located near The Regional Natural Park of Maremma, named also Parco dell’Uccellina. It was instituted in 1975 but, in spite of its reduced dimension (10.000 hectares) and its youth, it soon became a point of reference for a large number of people. In 1993 was decorated with the Certificate of European Park, granted by European Council.
The park’s visit will certainly be a pleasant and instructive experience, but it is important bearing in mind that only one tour could be, in some case, disappointing because a short tour doesn’t offer great chances to meet wild animals; in fact the Park is not a zoo, animals are free, wild and not at our disposal.
You could visit the Park only on foot; there are two main entrances: Alberese and Talamone. Tour itineraries that start from Alberese are possible every days. For further information about opening and closing time and conditions contact the park Visit Centre.

Castiglione della Pescaia

Castiglione della Pescaia is an ancient village that overlooks the sea situated between Punta Ala and Marina di Grosseto. The old quarter is like a balcony on the Tyrrhenian Sea. The presence of a tourist seaport offers the possibility of daily tours for the islands of Tuscan’s Archipelago. Castiglione della Pescaia boasts old origins: the first population signs of this area go back to sixty thousand years, while the first urban settlement was Vetulonia, an old Etruscan town founded in the vicinity of Prile’s Lake (no longer existence). Romans instead built the Salebrone village, well-known for its mild climate, for the lake abounding in fish and surroundings abounding in games. After the fall of the Roman Empire and the Barbarian incursions, in 962 Castiglione was surrendered to Pisa by Ottone 1st, the Emperor of Germania. Pisa exploited the resources without worrying about the sand filling the port and of the waters of the lake Prile that, becoming stagnant, caused the increase of malaria epidemics.

Punta Ala

Covering the main road that join Castiglione della Pescaia to Follonica, arriving in a resort called Pian d’Alma, we have to turn left. Punta Ala doesn’t need any introductions, it’s one of the most exclusive resort of the Tyrrhenian coast; it was the operations’ place of Luna Rossa crew. Punta Ala is one of the most successful tourist settlement from the post-war period: it lies quiet in the middle of a pinewood, it offers to its visitors the cleanliness of its paths, its lawns and painstaking flowerbeds, the elegance of its well-kept gardens. Very important is its port (for the exclusive use of 900 berths) that offers the opportunity to rent boats, motorboats, yachts. Remarkable the golf course, one of the biggest in Europe, where take place important contests.

Saturnia

This waterfall is very famous in Tuscany because is an open-air free hot spring. The waters of Saturnia Therme are sulphureous-carbonic-sulphate-bicarbonate-alkaline. The smell is quite strong because of the sulphurous. Bathing in these kind of water is indicated in the treatments of: digestive system diseases, female genital organs and female urinary tracts, nose and throat diseases, dental diseases and respiratory deseases. It’s eve used for arthrosis, rheumatism, osteoarticular diseases, vascular diseases and all kind of skin diseases.

Orbetello

The town of Orbetello is on a small peninsula surrounded by lagoons of Levante and western; it’s divided by an artificial dam that, from 1841, combines it with the promontory of Monte Argentario. The lagoons are closed by two portion of land named ‘tomboli’ of Feniglia and Giannella, which offer to visitors several kilometres of beautiful beaches. In the area of the Tombolo of Giannella there are a great variety of migratory birds. Here stop the pink flamingo, a creature of rare beauty that helps to make particular the already beautiful landscape. Right in the middle of the Tombolo, WWF, in a farmhouse Spanish’600 manages a centre for environmental education. The Feniglia is the undisputed reign of the most varied shades of green and pleasant perfume of their maquis made more intense by the presence of lush pine forest that pours its shadow restaurateur inside. Here live in complete freedom, as protected species of animals. It is not uncommon along the “white” road bump into groups of deer that eat quietly. A beach of golden sand lapped by clear water complete the scenario of this strip of paradise

Monte Argentario

Monte Argentario was probably an island in origin, that was connected afterward to the Tyrrhenian coast by the thin Feniglia and Giannella’s tombolos, two narrow strips of sand formed by debris from the sea, accumulated by the currents. The promontory, completely mountuous ( 635 metres high ), is characterized by high and rocky coastlines, where one can admire the famous dwarf palm which grows spontaneously, and is also covered in Mediterranean woods, olives trees, vineyards, and orchards. In the vineyards, plantedon terraces escavated in the side of the mountain , the rare Ansonico and Riminese grapes are cultivated. The promontory economy, once based on the fishing, is today stricktly connected with the tourism.

Siena

Siena lies down on three hills between the sources of Arbia and Elsa rivers. It’s a industrial and agricultural centre, rich in works of art and monuments; it’s very important all around the world for his Palio. You visit the province during the whole year: in summer is a cool place, in winter for skiing sports and in spring for the beauties of nature. Founded from the Etruschi, Siena was a roman colony during the epic deeds of Augusto. It became seat of bishop in the ‘700 after the Longobard occupation, but in XI century was imposed itself as lay commune. Sour fights divided Siena from Florence, insomuch that Florence, in 1260, was defeated in Montaperti. After the governments of several lordships, the city fell under the imperial dominion and belonged to Mediceo’ State, then Lorenese State until 1859; in this date was annexed to the Reign of ltalia.
