Tufo Cities

In the authentic Maremma

In the southern part of the Tuscan Maremma there is an area of particular charm: the Tufo area

This is a vast land that is particular due to the presence of tuffaceous rocks, on which both inhabited centers and medieval villages have been built


At the center of this area there is Pitigliano, built on a massive tuff rock, in which are present several paths carved into the same rock . Pitigliano is also known as the Little Jerusalem, given the presence of several buildings of Jewish origin

Near Pitigliano are the medieval village of Sorano, named as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy together with Montemerano, and the Etruscan center of Sovana, small in size but with buildings of particular artistic beauty

On the road that connects Podere Capraia to the Tufo area, it is possible to stop at the Terme di Saturnia (Cascate del Mulino) famous in the world for the naturalistic context in which they are inserted.
