Tour program

1° DayCASTIGLIONE DELLA PESCAIA

Arrival, meet & greet in the hotel.
Free afternoon.
Hotel accomodation and overnight.

2° DayVETULONIA, CASTIGLIONE DELLA PESCAIA, DIACCIA BOTRONA NATURAL RESERVE

Breakfast at the hotel. For today we recommend the following visits:

Castiglione della Pescaia and a short visit to the small village, an authentic jewel of the Maremman coast. 

Then continue to Vetulonia: located on the north-western shore of the former Lake Prile, in front of the hill of Roselle, this ancient and powerful city, part of the Etruscan Dodecapolis and traces of which are completely lost, is nowadays a small and picturesque village. Here you will first visit the prestigious Etruscan Museum and then walk down along the Via dei Sepolcri, the Necropolis Area where the famous monumental tombs of Belvedere, Pietrera, Diavolino and Fibula d’oro are located: these tombs date back to the VII-VI century B.C. and during the excavations real treasures were discovered, such as masterpieces of goldsmiths, Oriental vases, helmets, shields, spears, statues and gold and silver coins bearing the ancient name Vattl (Vattluna was the Etruscan name of this place).

The afternoon will be dedicated to explore the Diaccia-Botrona Natural Reserve: with its thousand hectares it is considered the most significant Italian wetland; it owns an extraordinary ecosystem, which hosts an incredible variety of living microorganisms, both plant and animal, that is a real “genetic bank” which gives a great contribution in maintaining the biodiversity of the area. Inside the oasis stands a red building, which seems to ignite at sunset contrasting with the blue of the sky: it is the Casa Ximenes , also known as the “Red House”. It was built by the Jesuit engineer Leonardo Ximenes in 1765 as part of a huge process of reclaiming of this territory. He provided it with several technological structures such as gates, bulkheads and various gears that are still present, although not used nowadays. Today the Red House is also the seat of an interactive museum: on the first floor an original documentary, integrated with a three-dimensional projection, clearly shows how the current environment is the result of both natural evolution and human interventions. On the second floor, visitors can do bird-watching activities on a panoramic terrace.

Return to the hotel and overnight.

 

 

3° DayFATTORIA "LE MORTELLE"

Breakfast at the hotel.

Departure for a recommended visit of Fattoria Le Mortelle: we are in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, a few kilometers away from Castiglione della Pescaia, in an extraordinary and fascinating position both for nature and for the history of the places that surround it. The farm extends over 270 hectares, 170 of which are planted with vineyards. Wine tasting at the end of the visit.
