    What else ...

    We are near to Campagnatico (2 km), Paganico (6km) , Grosseto (20 km) , Seaside (30 km) , Siena (50 km)

    The town centre of Grosseto is confined between the city walls, and can easily be explored in a few hours.
    Medicean Walls. The city walls were begun by Francesco I de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany in 1574, and took 19 years to finish. They are largely preserved, and most of the walls can be walked.

    St. Lawrence Cathedral (Duomo di Grosseto / Cattedrale di San Lorenzo), Piazza Dante Alighieri. This Romanesque cathedral, built in the 13th-15th century, is now largely the result of 19th century restoration works.
    Palazzo Aldobrandeschi, Piazza Dante Alighieri. This pleasant neogothic reconstruction of a medieval palace dominates the adjacent square, where the locals gather in the evenings for a stroll and chat. It houses the seat of the province of Grosseto.
