Where is Maremma? Located on the coast of southwestern Tuscany, Maremma is nearly 100 miles from the nearest airport.
In Maremma, I found from native Italians that many regions can be identified by how the local food is prepared.
I was told before my visit to Tuscany to definitely take one of the cooking classes offered in the area. Hours after arriving in Maremma, I found myself kneading bread dough in the kitchen of a bed and breakfast with the jolly, maternal owner as my instructor.
My cooking lesson describes much of my overall experience in Maremma: I learned to enjoy a simple pleasure I had always taken for granted while chatting comfortably with a hostess who didn’t care about the barriers of language or my lack of experience. The scent of baking bread always brings me back to that kitchen in Tuscany.
Nearly every tourist activity is designed to accommodate visitors of all ages, especially activities of a physical nature. Horseback riding lessons, fishing trip rentals and mountain biking excursions are among the most popular family-friendly entertainment options in Maremma.
Art parks are a great place to visit with children due to the exhibits being displayed outside rather than indoors, giving kids more space to move around and explore. Farm tours and some cooking classes offer hands-on participation for children to keep them occupied.
Insider tip: Arrive at art parks early to avoid the heat of the day and the densest crowd concentration.
Insider tip: Do your homework and research prices for riding lessons because fees can vary widely.
Fun Fact: Maremma has a breed of wild horses that run free. The Maremma horse is the favored breed of the last European cowboy, known as the "Butteri."
Local Dishes: Beef, boar and fish are the main protein staples of the Meremma diet. A popular dish known as aqua cotta consists of locally grown vegetables served with freshly baked bread.
Local Day Trips: Maremma locals offer tours of farms, guided walking tours of the town, nature tours on mountain bikes, fishing trips, scuba diving and horseback riding. Farm tours are not only educational but are often hands-on experiences with free samples of what the farm produces, such as wine and cheese.
Although beaches and outdoor activities attract many visitors to the area each year, Maremma is also home to some of the most beautiful and relaxing spa locations in the world. Luxury spas built around naturally occurring hot water sources have made this region a popular hotspot for rest, relaxation and pampering.
The natural hot water has drawn visitors for centuries. People long ago were taken in by the glorious sight of the land and later found that Maremma enjoys bountiful water resources, purported to have health and healing properties. Even winter cannot squelch the allure of the warm waterfalls and streams. The water is hot all year round, making any time ideal for visiting the springs of Maremma!
