Capalbio has for decades been one of Italy’s hottest undiscovered holiday destinations. At the feet of the Tyrrhenian Sea in Southern Tuscany’s Maremman region, Capalbio is the seaside getaway for the country’s rich and famous and home to some of the country’s best beaches. But for us tourists, Capalbio is also picturesque medieval town with all the charm and splendor of traditional Italy, its delicious cuisine and beautiful customs.
Capalbio was once the historical home of the Etruscan and Roman civilisations. Today much of the surrounding countryside bears the remains of these ancient cultures, kept alive by the necropolises, ruined cities and sacred monuments which can still be visited today. This rich heritage is continued in the town centre of Capalbio, where many of the buildings, churches and houses were built during the Middle Ages and Renaissance.
But the true beauty of Capalbio is the scenic backdrop it provides to all this history and culture. Like many of the towns in the Maremma, a region renowned for its mix of history and natural beauty, Capalbio is surrounded by a breathtaking countryside of rolling hills, lush valleys and uncontaminated beaches.
