Grosseto City Center
The historical city center of Grosseto is at a short distance both by car and by bicycle. One can stroll through the ancient roads and alleyways of the old part of the city going from piazza Rosselmini, known to the locals as piazza della Vasca, to Piazza Santa Maria. A must-see in the city center is the renaissance era Duomo, the church of St. Francis, the cloister with a Boninsegna cross, the Archaeological museum and the medicean walls. The ancient fortress along the walls hosts live concerts and an open-air cinema during the summer months.
A short distance from Grosseto is the archaeological site of Roselle, where during the high season there are theatre shows at night.
At 47 km from Grosseto lies Massa Marittima, a town of medieval origin with its cathedral of San Cerbone, the Palazzo dell’Abbondanza, the loggias of the Comune
