15 August Big Event 'The Argentario Marina Palio' of the PortoSantoStefanoTown. The surrounding Etruscan area is full of beautiful little town like Tarquinia, Tuscania, Pitigliano, Sorano and Sovana. Capalbio at only 29 km with many restaurants specialized in the old country side cuisine of Maremma. Saturnia termal bath are also a must if you are in the area. We also recomend a visit to the internal highlands (25 km)in Scansano to buy the famous Morellino wine.
Porto Santo Stefano is not indicated in any Lonely Planet guide and to a limited extent, in other guides. In my opinion, this is a positive step forward. This is the reason why I have written few lines for my guests of the Terrazza dei gabbiani. I will be happy if you will enjoy things I like, I generally used to do when I was there.
