Grosseto is as much about its Tuscan surroundings as it is the city itself. The Province of Grosetto stretches from the slopes of the Metalliferous Hills and includes the verdant hills and valley of the Maremma. Grosseto itself, surrounded by 16th-century walls and overlooked by the impressive Medici fortress is an interesting place to explore. The Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral is home to a collection of notable artworks and the Maremma Museum of Archealogoy and Art conserves local paintings. Visit one of the many delightful restaurants serving delicious local fare. Try Acquacotta, a soup with lightly fried onion, celery, tomato and chili or scottiglia di cinghiale, a wild boar stew, to get a real flavour of the region. With diverse surroundings, there's rock climbing, the nearby golden beaches of Gianella and Feniglia, golf, watersports and a number of different tracks to traverse, whether you're on foot, bike or horseback.
