Castiglione della Pescaia: not only sea
An ancient fishing village, today known and appreciated tourist locality, awarded with the blue flag and the 5 sails of Legambiente and Touring club touring club, which tracks environmental quality and sustainable management of marine and coastal area, Castiglione della Pescaia is the pride of the Tuscan Maremma.
A stone’s throw from the wonderful beaches of Punta Ala, Rocchette and Cala Violina and the cliffs of Punta Capezzolo, the village overlooks a clean sea and the characteristic port channel, at the center of trails where you can go by bike, by horse, by boat or on foot, discovering nature, history and folklore.
From the medieval village of Diaccia Botrona, very moist area of international importance, everything here gives strong emotions.
In the surroundings you can visit the remains of St Pancrazio Abbey at Isola Clodia, the Museum and Etruscan tombs at Vetulonia and the famous Etruscan excavations at Roselle , the wonderful Massa Marittima, the Abbey of San Galgano, the Parco della Maremma and participate in excursions to the islands of the Tuscan archipelago
Castiglione della Pescaia, also chosen by the famous writer Calvin who spent the summers at Roccamare, offers relaxation, culture, environment and food and wine of great quality (the strada del vino e dei sapori : Monteregio di Massa Marittima).
In local taverns and restaurants you can enjoy aromas and flavors of traditional marinara in addition to typical Maremma (tortelli, pici, mushroom soup, wild boar etc.) paired with the wines so important in this area.
