About the village

Capalbio, in the province of Grosseto, is called the small Athens, due to its position and the historical and artistic importance assumed in the Renaissance era. Located in the south of Tuscany, Capalbio stands on a hill covered by the typical Maremma scrub. The municipality was awarded with the 5 sails and it is in first place in the Blue Guide for the reception and quality of its area.

Its history is closely connected to the Tre Fontane Castle of Rome, which today dominates the valley below. The different and characteristic neighboring hamlets make the village very famous. All small and characteristic, some of the hamlets are also known for the wonderful beaches, which offer numerous services and are suitable for families with children and for young people looking for fun.

Capalbio is a destination for nature lovers, as it represents the oasis of the WWF Reserve in Lake Burano, and sport lovers in general. Among the most important tourist attractions there is the famous Giardino dei Tarocchi, an artistic park of cyclopic sculptures created by Niki de Saint Phalle on a hill near Capalbio.

The Capalbio Doc includes white, red, rosé and vin santo wines produced in the hilly and foothill area of the southern part of the province of Grosseto. An area of ancient wine production whose wild Mediterranean beauty leaves room for hills rich in olive groves and vineyards. The cuisine is characterized by dishes linked to both land and sea. Capalbio Bianco and Capalbio Vermentino go well with seafood dishes, particularly molluscs and shellfish and typical Tuscan dishes such as panzanella, marzolino, rice soup. The Capalbio Rosso and the red monovariety are to be tasted with more structured dishes such as fegatelli, meatloaf alla fiorentina, ribollita, steak alla fiorentina, hare.
