Ciao! My husband and I are going to be staying at Marina di Grosetto June 28 – July 2, and I was hoping you may be able to help me! It looks like wine country is all around, but I’ve noticed a lot of tours are out of Florence. I would love to see if you can help recommend things to do while we’re there and what tours you may offer that are available on those dates. We’re VERY interested in: – Wine tours/tasting – Cooking – Truffle Hunting – Cheese tasting – Anything else “off the beaten path” We love small, intimate experiences (but we also love meeting people) so I look forward to hearing from you! Grazie! Erica 15. June 2018

Hi Erika,

There are plenty of things you can do. Here are my recommendations:

Wine tours/tasting: try the Antinori Cellar in Castiglione della Pescaia. They have a lovely vineyard with plenty of homemade products to try
Cooking: Cooking classes are hard to track down because there’s no cooking school, but I know Fattoria Le Spighe di Francia Giancarlo in Orbetello has them. Otherwise ask your accommodation. The reception staff should be able to help.
Truffle Hunting – wrong season, unfortunately.
Cheese tasting: Caseificio Inno Al Sole in Grosseto does cheese tasting sessions


Hello Elisa, Do you know if it is difficult to find a teaching English position without an EU passport? I’m over 30 and have used my work/holiday visa. I have looked at options online and I do speak Italian. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Have a great day and thank you for your help. Vanessa from Vanessa 2. May 2018

Hi Vanessa, unfortunately, yes. In the Maremma, I don’t know of any teaching positions. You’d be better off looking in the cities, like Florence and Rome, but without a working visa or EU passport, it would be very difficult.


Would you visit the region in high summer? From late July through to the middle of August (Ferragosto)? Or would it be too hot/crowded? We would most likely visit with our caravan so we’ll be looking at campsites. 2. May 2018

Be sure to book extremely far ahead because campsites book out in August months in advance.


Is there any public parking in Porto Santo Stefano? Thank you. 2. May 2018

Yes, just look for the spaces that aren’t outlined in blue.


We are inspired to stay in Monte Argentario the second week of June. We want to use it as a home base to explore the Maremmo. We love agritursmi. Do you have any recommendations for where to stay? 2. May 2018

All of them are lovely in Monte Argentario, my best advice is to choose one with easy access to the beach because it can get hot in June.
