We spent a couple days here at the end of a month long vacation; the initial purpose was to find some place within 90 minutes of the Rome airport and some place we hadn't visited during previous trips to Italy. Were we lucky - Monte Argentario is basically an island, connected to the mainland by two thin strips of land,... More

Because I met some lovely people at il Vicoletto in Talomone, I visited them in Porto Ercole. We went out in their boat, and this coastline is spectacular, wild, isolated...I do hope that the Maremma is not flooded with tourists, but it is such a magical place.

We rented a car while traveling through Italy and decided to stop on this magical peninsula 'island' as it looks on the map. We were not disappointed the water is blue and warm. The people are extremely friendly! I would come back to this place every year if I could... to relax and enjoy true hospitality and beauty! We stayed... More

I went traveling on a scooter from Orbello to the Monte. It was in the rain, but once reaching the Convento at the top, you have very beautiful views and you can see the island's connection to the mainland it is quite stunning. There is nothing up int he Monte except this Convento but really worth the trip up if... More

This most southern appendix of the Tuscan coast offeres breathtaking scenery, remote caves, wonderfull beaches (Duna di Feniglia is just one of them, and the largest) This trip we had far to little time there ... and I guess I must come back in the near future ...

We just returned from 12 days in Italy where we spent most of our time in Tuscany. If you drive up the coast from Rome, you run in to an area called Monte Argentario which is a small penninsula attached to the mainland by a causway. There are two main villages Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano. We visited Porto... More

M.A. is an island connected to the mainland by 2 strips of land and a man-made causeway. It is mainly mountainous, so the coast is steep and rocky. There are however some nice little coves and a couple of nice harbour towns. It is a nice place to drive around or cycle around, and it is about 40km in circumference.... More

We did two hikes from the port, first to the tower and the second one, a circle around the ort from the ridges. Trails were easy to follow, once you found them. Good idea to get a good topographic map of the area, 1:25000
