Maremma is the beautiful country of South Western Tuscany. This area has verdant green, rolling hills dotted with small villages and farmlands and sandy beaches. This is also a big archaeological area for Etruscan remains and tombs and the historical fortress of Populonia.
A great place for a holiday as it combines Tuscan country stays and the white beaches of the Argentario coastline so sea and country. You can also ski at Mount Amiata in the winter.
The Island of Elba off Piombino was where Napoleon was exiled to for ten months (which would not have been a punishment). The little seaside village of Castiglione della Pescaia is picturesque and a great place to stay in for Tuscan beaches.
The area is full of Etruscan ruins where the Etruscans made their seaside ports. Grosseto is a the main center of Maremma country. From here one can make day trips out to the many beautiful little villages.
