Things to do in Monte Argentario


The best time of the year to tour southern Tuscany on bicycle is in the spring, from mid-April onwards until early summer, say mid-June. In July and August the climate becomes very hot (but dry), so bicycling can become difficult in the mid-day hours. Similarly, the autumn is wonderful until about early November.

Bird watching

In the vicinity of Albinia, between the state highway and the sea, stretches the Nature Reserve of Orbetello, one of the oldest and most beautiful in Italy, where many species of birds can be seen.

Argentario Golf Club

The still young par 71, 18-hole course of the Argentario peninsula (founded in 2004) is located in a protected oasis of Mediterranean maquis, with fine views across the valley to the open sea, the Orbetello lagoon and the hills of the Maremma in the distance. 


There are seven beautiful islands that make up the Tuscan archipelago off the coast of Monte Argentario. They are, in order of size, Elba, Giglio, Capraia, Montecristo, Pianosa, Giannutri and Gorgona.

Walks and hikes

A hike or gentle walk through a world waiting to be discovered – the promontory of Monte Argentario – gives one the space and freedom to quickly forget the stresses and strains of everyday life.
