It is also one of the most unspoiled regions in Tuscany, Italy, marked by pristine beaches fringed with umbrella-shaped maritime pines and cork-oak woodlands, where aristocratic families such as the Principe Corsinis still hunt for wild boar.

SATURNIA with its public incredibly beautiful natural Hot Springs - This pink-stone village, part of the larger town of Manciano, dates back to Roman times, when nobles would “take the cure” at its sulfurous hot springs. Today, visitors can still soak up the benefits at the Cascate del Gorello, a public waterfall that cascades down natural limestone. Those seeking a more intimate experience check in to the exclusive Terme di Saturnia Spa, where the same restorative waters gush into a private thermal pool. Thanks to the much-lauded restaurants, Saturnia is also a popular detour for gastronomes.
L’Argentario - A thickly wooded, 23-square-mile promontory linked to the mainland by three causeways, L’Argentario has long been a vacation spot for wealthy Romans. Its main towns are Porto Santo Stefano, a flashy harbor for yachts, and the colorful Porto Ercole, where the Baroque painter Caravaggio died of malaria in 1610. There’s also the lively fishing port of Orbetello nearby, with its blue-tinged lagoon.
The Maremma’s Volcanic Rock Villages - A drive through the Etruscan villages of Pitigliano, Sovana, and Sorano makes a pleasant road trip. From Saturnia, head 30 minutes west to Sovana. Walk down the cobblestoned main street, then visit the 12th-century St. Peter’s Cathedral. Next, drive 15 minutes south to Pitigliano to tour the Jewish Museum (Vicolo Marghera; 39-0564/614-230), in the former ghetto. Then swing by La Pietra Stregonia (76 Via Zuccarelli; 39-339/231-8479), where Alessandra Fonzo creates intricate jewelry from vintage stones. Drive another 15 minutes northwest to Sorano and hike the labyrinth of narrow streets to the Orsini Fort, followed by a glass of organic Sovana Rosso wine at L’Ottava Rima.
The medieval village of Capalbio is the Maremma’s epicenter, and come summer, Italian politicians and actors fill its sidewalk trattorias and artisanal shops selling regional specialties such as piquant olive oils and house-made jams. From here, it’s a 15-minute drive southwest to the fashionable Ultima Spiaggia, the perfect spot for a beachside frittura di pesce.
THIS IS THE PERFECT HOLIDAY FOR ANYBODY AS IT OFFERS EVERYTHING YOU MAY WISH FOR IN ANY SEASON.
