Grosseto (Tuscany)

Grosseto is a city and comune in the central Italian region of Tuscany. The city is known as the political and cultural center of the Maremma – Tuscany’s wilder, coastal territory, often overlooked by tourists. The city center is dense, closed off by a beautifully preserved, circular medieval wall, now used as a public park and walking area. Within it, there are plenty of treasures well worth visiting, including the Romanesque cathedral, the main monument of the city, named for its patron St. Lawrence, the Church of San Francesco, the Palazzo Aldobrandeschi. It's worth visiting the Maremma Natural Park, a 9,000 hectare green oasis extending along the stretch of coast between Principina a Mare and Talamone.
