The time I spent in Argentario, I will never forget. It was the first time I’d been to the seaside
last year. I was so full of energy that I knew I was going to enjoy the whole weekend. Two days at the beach
, it will be blissful, I thought. Argentario offers great activities for the lovers of trekking
and mountain biking. The landscape itself will entice the avid photographer with the flowing hills around Monte Argentario. The sea invites all travelers to enjoy the beaches which stretch up the coast of Grosseto.
are amongst shady pine trees which makes the area around the beach very quiet, relaxing and easily accessible. The views from the beach are without words. You have great mountains towering at one end where Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole rise up from the sea. The rocky sea with warm sand under your toes is what long weekends are made of. For the history buffs, there are Spanish forts on Monte Argentario that you can visit which are located high on the cliffs. The coast can draw the lovers of diving into the many dive sites where there are caves to catch a glimpse of sea life as well.

, with more fish, I was in awe of how fresh and filling each meal set me back.
Being beach side was my paradise last year. After almost a full year of not escaping the city of Florence
, I was dying for a getaway. An escape to see a different part of Italy, a gateway to a different way of living. On the seaside.
