Sovana and Pitigliano are two small villages located in the province of Grosseto; they’re not too far from Florence, and of course really worth the visit.


Sovana, the smaller of the two, is a really typical place of Etrusc origins, where many ancients tombs can be seen. The houses keep the characteristic atmosphere of an old center, with their red-orange bricks.

Pitigliano stands on an abrupt tuff butte high above three small rivers. From the Aldobrandesque family, to the Jewish community, this place has many stories to be discovered and places to be admired. The sight from the upper town will leave you breathless.
