Cultural tips within 150 kilometres from il Salotto, Wines & Resort

No more than 150 km from il Salotto, you can find many of Tuscany's historically relevant cultural centres with extraordinary art museums. For example, you can visit Rome (2 h by train from Grosseto to Rome's city centre), Florence (2 h by car), Pisa, Siena (1 h by car) or Lucca (1.5 h by car). Allow yourself to be enchanted by the art-historical diversity. And even the way there is worth the trip.

The beautiful Tuscan landscape is balm for the soul.

Vespa museum

The Museo Piaggio illustrates the culture of Italian-made means of transportation. Pre-war planes and trains, the large Vespa collection as well as three- and four-wheeled Piaggios and motorcycles from Aprilia, Gilera and Moto Guzzi are vying for the attention of the visitors.

Parco dei Mostri

This "Park of Monsters" was commissioned by Vicino Orsini in the 16th century and took 30 years to build. The complex later fell into oblivion and nature reclaimed it. The sculptures were not rediscovered until the middle of the 20th century and partially excavated. It served Salvador Dali and others as inspiration. The park is very expressive with regard to the interplay of enchanted, surreal sculptures and the lush green vegetation.  A delightful trip to discover a fantasy world. Bomarzo is located in the Latium part of the Maremma.

Etruscan villages

The Etruscans left their mark on many places in the Maremma.  Among the outstanding sights are the three centuries-old villages of Sovana, Sorano and Pitigliano. The dramatic landscape of the Alta Maremma provides a fitting background. We especially recommend visiting Pitigliano, which is also called "little Jerusalem".
