Orbetello (Tuscany)

Orbetello is a town in the province of Grosseto (Tuscany), Italy. It is located about 35 kilometres (22 mi) south of Grosseto, on the eponymous lagoon, which is home to an important Natural Reserve. Orbetello was an ancient Etruscan settlement, which in 280 BC passed under the control of the Romans, who had founded their colony of Cosa (near the modern Ansedonia).

What others are saying about Tuscany

@JanJ asks:

We are planning to drive over to our place in northern Tuscany in April with a van load of furniture (all second hand) bits and bobs for the house etc but I have suddenly realised that this may not be as straightforward as it was pre brexit!! What are the rules regarding transporting stuff now?

@Coral asks:

I am planning on living in Florence for a year. Can anyone recommend a good agency for a long-term rental?

Thanks.

Anyone know of a good Notaio in the Pescaglia/Bagni di Lucca area of Tuscany?
