There so many different ways to experience the Maremma, that you shouldn’t confine yourself just to sightseeing.

Soak up the history and culture of the region with a guided city tour, immerse yourself in the food and wine with a trip to a local farm or vineyard, learn the secret of the Italian cuisine with a cooking class or spend a day under the Tuscan sun on horseback, mountain bike or your own two feet.

Then again, you could skip the exercise all together and just pamper yourself with a spa break at some of Tuscany’s most luxurious spas and thermal springs.

Whatever your fancy, you can be pretty sure there’s a tour or guide that caters for it.

The Maremma is, after all, a region blessed with everything – a beautiful landscape, a fascinating history, an incredible culinary reputation and everything in between.

Here are a few examples of guided tours, trips and classes available to get your started, and don’t worry, all of them are run in English.
