Things-to-do

THINGS TO DO

Excursions / Interests

Lagoon of Orbetello

Lagoon, Mediterranean maquis, coastal dune, meadows, pine-wood... The Oasis of Orbetello is the perfect habitat for many species of birds. A wetland of international importance (Ramsar Convention) the Oasis of Orbetello protects 300 hectares of salty lagoon where at times small silt islands covered with swamp vegetation emerge. The Tombolo della Giannella that runs along the coast is covered by a luxuriant Mediterranean maquis while inside the lagoon there is a large carpet of clasping leaved sea purslane. Further inland there are woods of aspen, cork oaks, ash and elms. Southward is the Patanella Woodland characterised by large extension of heather. Its extension is about 850 hectares.

La Feniglia

The sandy beach of La Feniglia is located on the tombolo (the narrow piece of land that attaches an island to the mainland) that divides Orbetello Lagoon from the Tyrrhenian Sea. It is immersed in the Duna Feniglia Nature Reserve, so you can access this pristine 10-km beach strip only by bicycle or by walking 10-20 minutes from the nearest car park. Most of it is free beach, but you will also find a couple of beach clubs with bars, restaurants and rental of sun loungers & parasols.

Town of Forte Filippo

Built around the same time as Forte Stella and designed by the same architect, Giovanni Camerini, this fort represents the regal past of Porto Ercole. In the second half of the last century, the fort was sold and subdivided into luxury apartments. Forte Filippo looks more like a castle than a tower and its quadrangular shape is protected by a double wall, one wide and short, the other tall and reinforced. Some of the original walkway along this inner wall has been preserved and you can still see the tiny niches around the bastions that were used to store weapons and attack the enemy. On Forte Filippo’s ‘door’, it’s really a round arch, is a large Stato dei Presidi coat of arms and some faded red detail work. The arch would have been sealed by a wooden drawbridge, but that, unsurprisingly didn’t last the centuries. This fort can be admired from the outside only.
