A chain of unique and wild hills that go towards the sea, with its sandy beaches and its cliffs, surrounded by wetlands, pine forests, fields and pastures. The park area covers the Tyrrhenian coast from Principina a Mare to Alberese, up to Talamone.

Geographically it is characterized by the mouth of the river Ombrone, the Uccellina mountains, the wetland of the Trappola and its particular coastline with both sandy beaches and rocky hikes.

The Parks of Maremma

The Maremma Regional Park, also known as the Uccellina Park, covers the coastal strip between Principina a Mare and Talamone and is bordered by the Livorno-Rome railway. In addition to 9,000 hectares (the park area) there are about 8,500 hectares of neighboring land.

The park has been recognized by the EU with the European Diploma of Protected Areas. There are many different landscapes: the profile of the Uccellina mountains with their peak Poggio Lecci (417 meters), the shape of the Ombrone river, which separates the alluvial plain partially improved by the Trappola wetland and the succession of sandy beaches and cliffs on its coast The Trappola wetland is one of the largest brackish wetlands in Tuscany. The orographic system of the Uccellina mountains consists of limestone massifs in the northern part and of sandstone formations in Verrucano, in the central and southern part.

As for the historical and architectural heritage, there are some remains of the Roman-Etruscan period near Talamone and along the river Ombrone or the medieval abbey of S. Rabano and the coastal towers. Between the Uccellina mountains and the Aurelia road there is a countryside area with fields, vineyards and olive groves. Even if they are not wild animals, it is important to mention the Maremmana horses, one of the most famous elements of the Maremma environment.

Talamone is a village of historical importance, but its history is different from other nearby towns and villages. Today it is included in the town of Orbetello, in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma. It is easy to reach Talamone from the Aurelia road; it is about 25 kilometers from Grosseto and 10 from Orbetello. The village is located on a rocky promontory on the southern border of the Maremma Natural Park, with a breathtaking view of the coast that goes from Talamone to Monte Argentario.

The area is characterized by the typical Mediterranean vegetation and long sandy beaches bordered by pine forests. During the Etruscan period it was a thriving city and in 225 BC saw the fight against the Romans and the Celtics troops who were going to Rome. Talamone was then destroyed by Silla, thanks to the support of its citizens to Gaius Mario who was trying to challenge Rome after returning from Africa.

Both Talamone and Orbetello during the Middle Ages continued to live without facing important events and passing from one teacher to another (Aldobrandeschi, Siena, Florence). In 1557 the entire area was placed under Spanish control and Talamone became part of the State of the Presidi. In the port stopped Admiral Horatio Nelson during his expedition to Egypt, which began in 1798 from Toulon to Naples, stopping at “La rade de Tagliamon sur le côtes de Toscane” as Napoleon wrote in his memories, Thibaudeau wrote in his general Histoire of Napoleon Bonaparte, as well as Thiers and Tissot wrote in their Histoire de la Révolution Française. The name of the town is linked to Giuseppe Garibaldi and his Thousand who stopped here in 1860 to stock up on water and weapons. In that same year Talamone became part of the Kingdom of Italy. Among its monuments we must highlight the fortress that dominates the entire village and the coast. Near Talamone is the southern entrance to the Maremma Natural Park, from which some itineraries depart. Kitesurfing is allowed on Talamone beach.

At Talamone you will find the Lagoon Aquarium with a dozen aquariums. If you travel along the Aurelia railway, reach Monte Argentario; there you will find and visit Orbetello, Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole. These are the main destinations for tourists who choose to spend a few days at sea. If you go early in the morning or when the sun goes down, you can enjoy our beautiful Tyrrhenian islands such as Giglio, Giannutri, Elba, Montecristo and sometimes Sardinia or Corsica.
