Meandering Maremma

Meandering Maremma

Tuscany is remarkably varied. In the southwestern part of the region bordered by the Mediterranean Sea we find beautiful landscapes, delectable meals and divine vino wherever we turn! Could it be due to the enigmatic Etruscans who populated the area around 500 BC?  We’ll pay our respects as we visit their remarkable archeological sites, and discover new horizons in the area of southern Tuscany that stretches from Pisa to Lazio, celebrated in painting and song, and known as “La Maremma”.
