Tuscany beaches and Lazio beaches

Maremma is situated in the most south-western part of Tuscany, along the Italian coast with the Ligurian sea (the "Mar Ligure") and the Tyrrhenian Sea (the "Mar Tirenno"). Her land also extends along the "Alto Lazio" coast into both the provinces of Viterbo and Rome in Lazio. In total, over 250 kilometres of stunning coastline in Tuscany and Lazio.

And then there are the tiny, tucked-away coves on her Tuscan archipelago islands.
