Marina di Grosseto is a seaside resort town notorious for its long, white sandy beaches and chilled out atmosphere. Miles and miles of clean beach and clear blue oceans will greet you in this town in Tuscany, Italy, and the Italians are keen to keep it as natural as possible, due to the status of the land around it being a nature reserve. Alongside the idyllic seascape runs extensive pine wood forest, creating a sense of peace and tranquillity that you will truly enjoy if you travel to this Italian destination.
This coastal town was once a fishing village, and has been around since the eighteenth century. Because of this, Marina di Grosseto is heavily influenced by the sea and by its history, and you will find the way of life here calm, serene, and ruled by the changing tide of the ocean. However, it is still ideal as a tourist resort, as it has many options to eat out or go for a drink. Most of the restaurants favour seafood, as it is always fresh and deliciously cooked.
Because Marina di Grosseto is such a popular place to visit, especially in the summer for a sunny seaside getaway, there is a lot to do. Hiking, sailing, and numerous water sports are all accessible activities, and there are many quaint little villages and towns close by worth a visit, like Scansano, a highlight if only for its excellent wine.
Staying in Marina di Grosseto can be expensive, unless you choose more shared style accommodation, like a hostel. Hostels in Italy are famously a little more expensive than elsewhere in Europe, but are still good value and in beautiful locations. You can find hostels throughout the town, and they are all great places to use on your vacation.
Marina di Grosseto is the ultimate holiday resort, with stunning seascapes, lovely weather, and an Italian charm that attracts travellers from not just the rest of Italy, but the whole world.
