ITALY | A WALK THROUGH THE CHARMING FISHING VILLAGE OF TALAMONE, TUSCANY.

This summer the boys and I spent a splendid week at Argentario Osa Village in Talamone. We couldn’t have chosen a better base to exploring Monte Argentario and its neighboring towns.

I was truly enamoured of Talamone. This charming fishing village in Maremma, Tuscany is a Jewel. We enjoyed taking evening strolls through the village’s narrow streets and stone houses all the way to the Aldobrandeschi fortress.

The fortress was built in the 13th century and stands on top of a rocky hill dominating the port and offering delightful panoramic vistas and gorgeous photo backdrops. Just under the fortress is a beautiful waterfront beach establishment called Bagno Delle Donne.

Talamone is also linked to Giuseppe Garibaldi, one of the greatest Italian generals that contributed to the Italian unification and the creation of Italy. En route to Sicily Garibaldi stopped over in Talamone to stock up on water and weapons.
