These spectacular kite aerial photography (KAP) images of Maremma - and those used throughout this Maremma Travel Guide have been taken by the very talented Opaxir, who is a professional Kite Archaeology Aerial Photographer.
Explore from this unique perspective, an undiscovered paradise of prestine beaches and hidden white sand coves, a stunning coastline with the turquoise and emerald green waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, protected wildernesses, and medieval hilltop towns where time has nearly all but stood still... Maremma.
The above KAP image is of the Canonica of San Bruzio near Magliano in Toscana, Maremma.

|Populonia and Etruscan Acropolis along the beautiful Costa degli Etruschi in Maremma Livornese.
A very special place indeed... where the Etruscans chose to build their only city by the sea.
|The Ombrone River Delta located along the coast of Maremma Grossetana, where it flows into the Tyrrhenian Sea.|
|Casa Rossa and Diaccia Botrona Marshland. The last relic of a once large Etruscan and Roman lake - "lago Prile" - that lay between Castiglione della Pescaia and Grosseto.
Long coastal dunes, the "tombolo" separate the marshland from the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The marshland is a site of great environmental importance.
There is a visitors centre within the Riserva Naturale Provinciale Diaccia Botrona and guided boat tours are available through the marshes.
|Laguna di Orbetello - East side.
Joined to Monte Argentario, the Laguna di Orbetello is a man-made lagoon divided in two: Laguna di Levante and Laguna di Ponente. An internationally important nature reserve.
