[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the most beautifull beach I have ever been.

The maremma area near Grosseto is in southern Tuscany and in the centre of the peninsula. It is one hour by car from Rome and Florence. Once an unlucky area because it was a swamp and thus infested by malaria, it is now a prime example of pure and wild natural beauty due to its crystal waters, golden beaches, and a coast characterized by pine trees and populated with cows and select horses. From Grosseto to Capalbio there are never-ending beaches and places frequented by celebrities, as well as seafood specialties and world-renowned wines. The vitality of these zones disappears within moments in the silence of low mountains and hills, where visitors can discover a more authentic Tuscany - everything from watchtowers to abbeys. Don’t miss the Maremma National Park, which extends for 100 sq. km, excluding the south and south-west borders that face onto the sea and the high, rocky coastline. North of this zone, there are a series of beaches with many types of centiuries-old plants characteristic of the zone, which have adapted well to the sandy and salty area. From a naturalistic point of view, the Monti dell’Uccellina, the pine trees in Marina di Alberese, the Foce del fiume Ombrone, the Palude from Trappola together comprise a precious mosaic of ecosystems, which have been touched by human intervention throughout the years without ever damaging it.
