Capalbio

Capalbio is an ancient village surrounded by the Maremma’s countryside. Inside its walls you can "breathe" the atmosphere of past centuries. Along the narrow streets, squares and old walkways you can have the feeling of stepping back in time.
At present Capalbio is a tourist destination, visited by many show business and movie stars, appreciated for its arts, nature and “tastes” of an extremely protected and safeguarded area. In the inner village of Capalbio and on the crenellated tower of the Aldobrandeschi castle (where Puccini’s piano is still well preserved) and from its walls, you can admire a landscape of extraordinary beauty. We also suggest you to visit St. Nicholas fifteenth-century church and the Oratory of Divine Providence where you can admire a fresco ascribed to Pinturicchio.
The woods surrounding Capalbio are ideal territories for hunting, very common practice here, especially the wild boar hunting. Other places to visit are the WWF natural reserve at the Burano Lake and the long beach sheltered by a thick Mediterranean vegetation. The traditional cuisine is no less in Capalbio: its wines and fowl dishes are appreciated internationally. Last but not least, don’t miss a visit to the magnificent masterpiece by the French-born artist Niki de Saint Phalle, the Tarot Garden.
