About the area

Tuscany Coast and Surrounds

Average weather

The Maremma is a complete contrast to the classic Tuscan landscapes further north. Gone are the corrugated hills, cypress trees, and vineyards; replaced by fruit orchards and dairy herds—the fertile coastal plains here are Tuscany’s breadbasket. Port-resorts such as Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole are popular weekend bolt-holes for trendy Romans. Inland, where the coastal plains bump into the hills of the Alta Maremma, summer nights on a Tuscany holiday are fresher around hill-towns like Magliano in Toscana and Paganico.
