Description

The southern part of Tuscany in the Maremma uplands between the ancient volcano Mount Amiata, the meanderings of the Fiora river and its tributary, and the border with the Lazio Region are commonly known as Toscana dei tufi, Tuscany of the Tuff-rock, because tuff-rock is the first characteristic of this fascinating landscape of priceless archaeological heritage. Here, man has made skilful use of the particular nature of the surroundings, creating unique, sometimes magical settings which surround the visitor and play on his every sense. Geologically, the area is marked by tuff-rock shelves that stretch from Pitigliano and Sorano to as far as Lazio and Umbria.show more
