Welcome to Grosseto


One of the last Sienese-dominated towns to fall into Medici hands (in 1559), Grosseto's bastions, fortress and hexagonal-shaped, 2.5km-long walls were raised by the Florentines in order to protect what was then an important grain and salt depot for the grand duchy. Today, the city is the provincial capital of the Maremma, and its centro storico (historic centre) is a perfect place to stroll and experience the passeggiata along Corso Carducci.

The city is renowned for its heavy winter rainfalls, which have caused catastrophic floods in the past.

Luxury Maremma wine tour

Everyone knows Florence, Chianti region, Siena, but have you ever heard of Maremma? We are talking about the coastal area of south-western Tuscany, stretching between the cities of Livorno and Grosseto. Green hills, thermal baths, natural parks, but also blue sea and long beaches: this is Maremma, a timeless region with ancient Etruscan and Roman roots. This land has been constantly flourishing in the last years, becoming a must when you visit Tuscany: here you can find the perfect combination between human presence and still uncontaminated and wild nature. Thanks to its particular hot, sunny and windy microclimate and to its position close to the coast, wines from this region are something different in the Tuscan panorama, even if grapes cultivation here started many centuries ago. Visit the two most important Maremma wineries, known for their modern design: Rocca di Frassinello and Le Mortelle. Tasting of 3 innovative wines at Rocca di Frassinello owned by Panerai then proceed to Antinori's Mortelle designed from Renzo Piano, taste their food paired with 4 of their top wines. Visit Maremma may still be considered off the beaten track for many visitors to Tuscany, but it's well worth the exploration of a land that is harsh and delicate at the same time.
