A beautiful town in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, Pitigliano is one of the Most Beautiful Villages in Italy and Orange Flag.
Also nicknamed The Little Jerusalem, because starting from the sixteenth century it hosted a large Jewish community within its walls, Pitigliano is now one of the most fascinating historic villages in Italy and an unmissable stop on a trip to Tuscany.
Perched on a tuff cliff, the town rises imposingly on the valleys of the Lente, Meleta and Prochio streams, offering a wonderful view of the wild and unspoiled nature of this area of the Tuscan Maremma.
The imposing castle, which belonged first to the Aldobradeschi and then to the Orsini, dominates the village of Pitigliano which was built on the edge of a tufa cliff on the river Lente.
A network of alleys that descend to overlook the valley, the extraordinary ancient Jewish quarter, the Ghetto (closed on Saturdays), the deep cellars dug under the streets, the Etruscan gate, the hidden corners of the Fratta district, welcome the visitor fascinated by the incredible beauty of the landscape of Pitigliano.
We will also visit the extraordinary vie cave dug by the Etruscans around Pitigliano, ancient sacred roads even 10 meters deep and we will try to discover the secret of their origin. These ancient roads, along which the Etruscan necropolis are found, were also used as refuges during the war
