Castiglione della Pescaia – Beaches of Italy – Grosseto -Tuscany

Castiglione della Pescaia is an ancient seaside town in the province of Grosseto. The modern city grew around a medieval fortress and a large fishery, from which it got its designation. Today Castiglione della Pescaia is known for its beaches and is popular with residents from Grosseto and southern Tuscany.
