If you want to be beside the seaside in one of Italy’s most beautiful regions, then Porto Ercole in Tuscany, could be the place for you. Located in the region of Monte Argentario, this pretty seaside resort buzzes with atmosphere both day and night. There’s a lovely long promenade lined with restaurants and shops to take a seat and watch the boats sail into the harbour. You may even see a celebrity or two aboard their luxurious yachts. Porto Ercole has a great scene after hours, boasting many chic restaurants and glamorous nightclubs that come to life. But, for those who want to sightsee too, you only need to look up to see the fortresses of La Rocca, Santa Caroline and Stella – quite an impressive view in itself. And walking through the town you’ll see The Palace of the Rulers – a wonderful 16th century Renaissance building overlooking the Piazetta Santa Barbara. A great resort for families who like the beach and enjoy a great slice of pizza.
