Grosseto - The area of Grosseto is also known as Maremma.

The history of the Maremma goes far back into time, all the way to prehistory. From the seventh century B.C., with the presence of Etruscan civilization, it had become an important economic centre for the Mediterranean basin.

The interesting archaeological sites in the Grosseto province make the perfect itinerary for following the traces of this people. They are able to tell us today about this evolved society and its principal activities, a people known as "the first great people of Italy".The Etruscans, skilled craftsmen and merchants whose main activity was carried out at sea, built their cities on high terraces as can be seen with Roselle, Vetulonia and Ghiaccio Forte. Their necropoleis were structured as proper cities according to a precise urban plan, with streets, squares and splendid monuments. A short distance from Grosseto are the remains of two among the most important and powerful Etruscan cities: Roselle and Vetulonia.

Washed by the clear water of the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Maremma coastline's long, sandy beaches are bordered by dunes decked with green bushes and flowers and framed by lush, thick pine groves. The long sandy shore runs from Punto Ala to Castiglione della Pescaia and Marina di Grosseto and continues beyond Pincipina a Mare to the wild coves of Marina di Alberese in the Maremma National Park.

Its coastline is among the most beautiful and best known in the province. Here, isolated and completely untouched beaches alternate with the best equipped, able to satisfy any need.
