La Maremma, part 3, Castiglione della Pescaia

Some last looks at the amazing sights of La Maremma, which I was fortunate to visit, at long last, in October 2021.

Our last stop of the day was in Castiglione della Pescaia, a coastal town in Tuscany. The hilltop Castello di Castiglione della Pescaia is a medieval fortress with sweeping views of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Skirted by the Pineta del Tombolo pine forest, the wetlands of Natural Reserve Diaccia Botrona have flamingos and herons, plus the Casa Rossa Ximenes observation point. Northwest, the resort town of Punta Ala offers beaches with calm waters.
