Many small villages in this area, as Scansano, Montemerano and Saturnia, can give the traveler a step back in time, with their historic centers remained unchanged for hundreds of years.

The countryside surrounding the city are beautiful, and the rhythms of rural life still mark the day of the locals. In some rivers you can still swim, and the town of Saturnia is famous for its hot springs.

Another beautiful city in this area is Pitigliano, with its houses built on a sheer mountain of tuff. Through steep paths that lead to the top of the village, from which you can enjoy a splendid view.
