Set out on a panoramic hill at 380 meters above sea level, Massa Marittima, founded by the Etruscans, is one of the oldest and most fascinating towns in the Grosseto area. You can go walking through its narrow lanes to discover old-fashioned crafts shops, going up and down the hill enjoying wonderful views. Noticeable buildings include the Palazzo del Podestà, the Palazzo Comunale, and the magnificent Duomo from the XIII century.
Scarlino, the ancient medieval hamlet
This ancient medieval hamlet is at the center of an area rich with natural parks and protected areas, on the ridge of the Alma mountain overlooking the gulf of Follonica. The Castle of Scarlino stands tall above the countryide, giving it a magical, medieval atmosphere to the place, the perfect stage for many theatrical or musical shows.
