Grosseto a city waiting to be discovered

One of the cities of great interest to tourists located near our holiday farms in Maremma is certainly Grosseto.
This town in the heart of Tuscany has many attractions that will allow you to immerse yourself in its history. Precisely for this reason, we offer a few ideas.

For those with a passion for history, a must-see is definitely the Cassero Senese: the only medieval element of the walls surrounding the city, it was maintained after the walls were rebuilt in the second half of the 16th century.
In the Middle Ages it had a defensive function and has recently been upgraded through a series of restoration works, becoming a venue for art and photography exhibitions.

For those who love shopping and strolling, we recommend both the Thursday market, also known as the “Flower Market”, and Corso Giosuè Carducci, a street in the historic centre where there are many shops as well as many historic palazzos such as the Palazzo Comunale, Palazzo Vescovile, Palazzo Tognetti, Palazzo Alben, Palazzo Battigalli, and Palazzo Ferraris.
One of the most fascinating palaces in the city is definitely the Palazzo della Provincia or the Aldobrandeschi Palace, named after the family that founded it during the Middle Ages.

One of the most important sights in the city is the Duomo: built between 1294 and 1302 by the architect Sozzo di Rustichino. It features a typical red-and-white Romanesque façade and Gothic forms. Inside there are many works to admire such as the stained glass windows by Benvenuto di Giovanni and the stoup from 1506.

For a typical Tuscan lunch or dinner, we recommend the restaurant “Da Romolo” where you can eat typical products such as ribollita or wild boar “alla cacciatora”.

Finally, if you are a nature and walking enthusiast (…and a true sportsman), we recommend the 17-kilometre cycle path that starts from Via Alberto Sordi and reaches the sea, passing through the Maremma park and crossing the bridge over the Ombrone.
