“Walking with the naturalist” Sounds, colors and scents of one of the most evocative routes of the Maremma Park that winds through garigues and spots to reach one of the most scenic stretches of coast in Tuscany. The guide will illustrate the geology of the area, the vegetation composition and the animal species that frequent the different habitats found along the itinerary. The meeting is at 9.00 am in front of the entrance of the Camping Village of Talamone (the Camping Village in this period is closed).
