An authentic town of Tuscany awaits you when you embark on Grosseto holidays, and while the town may not reflect the typical grandeur and ‘Tuscan’ qualities of other famed cities nearby, you’ll still find countless things to see and do in this intriguing city.
Impressive landmarks and engaging museums do find a way into the town, though rivalling the splendid structures and iconic sites of other cities in the region, such as Florence, means that Grosseto will always be fighting a losing battle. But for many, holidays to Grosseto will reveal a much more honest insight into the traditions and ideals of Tuscany, allowing you to embrace the character and charm of a quintessential Italian town, while never being too far away from one of the area’s more iconic destinations.
The Beauty of Tuscany
In addition to the authentic identity of this town and the enchanting atmosphere, you’ll also be surrounded by beautiful Tuscan countryside during your holidays in Grosseto, easily accessible for those hoping to explore further afield during their break. Make sure you stop off to experience the engaging Archaeological Site of Roselle as you delve into the natural splendour of the region, as well as the impressive Scarlino Castle. Monte Argentario will host plenty of outdoor adventure, with this mountainous landscape proving a playground for hikers. Those hoping to add a coastal theme to their time in Italy should descend upon the nearby resort of Castiglione della Pascaia for their fill of beach and sunshine.
Despite the allure of the daytrip options on offer to holidaymakers, simply meandering around the streets of Grosseto and soaking up the local atmosphere will amount to some of the finest memories from your holiday. Absorb the architecture and atmosphere in the pretty Piazza Dante, dominated by the Duomo San Lorenzo, while also boasting some aromatic restaurants to duck into. Make sure you encounter the Aldobrandeschi Palace during your exploration of the town, as well as paying a visit to the old Medicean Walls. Those hoping to delve into the Roman history of the country shouldn’t do things in halves, with a quick train journey down the coast allowing you to explore the immense history and prominence of Rome.
