Porto Ercole, Tuscany is the south-facing village of the Monte Argentario municipality, which is located on a peninsula that juts out into the Tyrrenhian Sea. Tourism is on the rise in this part of the Grosseto province, but if you get in quick you can still enjoy its stunning coastal views, historic attractions, warm waters and sandy stretches before the almost inevitable tourist rush occurs.

Things to do in Porto Ercole area , Italy

Porto Ercole is the quieter of the two villages on the Monte Argentario peninsula, and home to a greater number of historic attractions than the more tourist-orientated Porto Santo Stefano. The most recognisable of these are the fortresses of La Rocca, Filippo, Santa Carolina and Stella, which date back to the 16th century and dominate the surrounding landscape.

The village of Porto Ercole is quiet and relaxed, with fishing having long been an important part of the local economy. Enjoying a meal in one of the village's seafood restaurants is a must, and is sure to be one of the highlights of your vacation. You can watch the fishermen go about their chores and bring in their catches by heading down to the picturesque port area.

Around the village you will also see a number of old buildings, such as the Church of St. Erasmus, as well as a decent selection of cafés, bars, shops and other businesses. The majority of these are located along the seaside promenade, which makes for a great evening stroll or a brisk morning walk.

Stunning views, cosy property & great location - we keep coming back!

5 of 5
We spent 2 weeks here this summer with our 18 month old daughter having also visited in previous years as a couple. As always it was great. Family friendly pool, great selection of sandy, pebbly or rocky beaches (inc private one for the compound) within walking distance or a <10 min drive. Highly recommend renting a little speedboat for the day and exploring the coast. Cosy property perfect for a couple with kids or friends with great outside space to eat and relax - the Pellicano Hotel 300m away charges ~€700/night for a room with the same view! Porto Ercole, Orbetello and Porto Santo Stefano all nearby for your evenings out. Gorgeous Tuscan towns such as Capalbio, Pitigliano and Sienna within easy driving distance for a half/full day trip. From a practical point of view, small supermarket and local shops are only a 5 min drive away in Porto Ercole, and a massive Coop supermarket is 15 mins away in Orbetello. Needless to say we'll be back again in the future!
