Private Day-Trip to Maremma with wine tasting from Civitavecchia's port

This excursion begins next your boat where you will meet an english speaking driver holding the sign with your name. Then you will start the confortable drive in an air conditioned minivan Mercedes towards North, passing the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Your first destination will be the medieval village of Pitigliano which rises dramatically from a tufa ridge as if carved from it, surrounded on all sides by a deep ravine sliced by Etruscan "ways" they call Via Cave where there are interesting tombs and carved churches that you can explore. The village is known as the ‘little jerusalem’. It was a haven for Jews who didn't like the confinement of ghettos in the big cities like Florence and Siena and couldn't move further south into the anti-Semitic Papal States in Lazio. Pitigliano's Jewish Quarter is a must-see. You can explore it on your own. Afterwards you go visiting Sovana, now listed as one of the 'most beautiful villages of Italy' and is a very picturesque village. The village is very simple to explore being essentially one main paved street, and a few small side streets. Your visit to Sovana can start from the ancient Aldobrandeschi’s Fortress. This castle has very ancient origins, certainly dating from Ancient Roman times and probably from the Etruscan period, although the castle we see today dates from a restoration in 1572. After you go for tasting wine at a local renowned vinery not far from Sovana. Over here you can sample some local wines and taste local food and seasonal bruschettas. The landlady will also enrich your wine tasting experience with interesting details about the wine production. After this you go on board for your last destination: The thermal springs waterfall of Saturnia. It is the time for you to soak into the natural hot springs of Saturnia where you can now get some relax for 1 hour. Then you go back to Civitavecchia’s port and the driver will drop you off next your ship.
