Pisa to Grosseto

Hi I'm after as much info as anyone could offer please:

Friends are staying in Grosseto next May and considering a week near to them, firstly I would like to find out how long the drive from Pisa airport will be?

What the area is like - ie is there any main towns with many shops, restaurants etc.. (we will be with our two sons 11 months and 7 years) so do not really want to be somewhere, where we will have to spend all week in the car to get anywhere. (ie would like to be able to walk to shops/beach etc..)

So is there any particular area of grosseto we should look into ?

Lastly any idea what the weather is usually like in May.

Many thanks inadvance for any advice offered.

Pisa airport to Grosseto takes under two hours on a fast easy highway.

Grosseto is a largish city and provincial capital with around 100,000 inhabitants. Plenty of facilities, and plenty of information about it online. The nearest sea is ten miles away at Marina di Grosseto.

The best part of Grosseto is downtown within the city walls. Hotel Bastiani is one of the best, and right downtown, few steps from Piazza del Duomo.

THe city itself is nice, not spectacular, but it has been recently cleaned up and made much prietter. Lots of shops downtown in and around the Corso.

Lots of nice bars and pubs too.

In the area, the Maremma, the coast is really nice, both going south towards Argentario and north towards Costa degli Etruschi. Inland, Massa Marittima, Pitigliano and surroundings are really beautiful.

If you like archaeology, Roselle is an important Etruscan site. One of the largest Etruscan museums are in Grosseto: very beautiful.

30 minutes from the city there are nice spas: Petriolo and Saturnia.

You can take a look at this page for more ideas about the area:

I suggest not to miss a day trip to Siena: it is near and easy to reach from Grosseto (by car or by regional train) and it is one of the most beautiful towns of Italy, the historical centre has mostly preserved the medieval features. Grosseto is nice but it doesn't compare.
