A Seaside Adventure in Castiglione della Pescaia

Last night I came back from a 5 day-vacation at a magical seaside place in Southern Tuscany called Castiglione della Pescaia. I've been there a few times in the past and every time I just love it. While most seaside places in Tuscany tend to offer the beach and a promenade along it with shops (ice cream shops, clothes shops, cafes, etc.), Castiglione also offers a small medieval fortress, making it unique and different from the other seaside towns.
I took these pictures on a morning on which I felt very brave (it was around 35 degrees and 10 am!) and decided to hike up to the top of the fortress.

I loved this Bouganville! The flowers blend so well with their environment and the colour's amazing.

I also took some pictures of the cute little doors of some houses on the way to the top. 

And here are the long waited for pictures when I got to the top!

And here's me all sweaty (but happy) at the end of the hike.

And here are some pictures of the harbourside and the sea on our morning walks.

There are some local shops in the area :) The first one is my favourite of the town as its pottery is unique. Honestly, I haven't found it anywhere else in Tuscany or Italy.

So this is it for my Castiglione blog. I hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures and let me know if you've been to Castiglione!

  3. Do not be talked into putting it off, if you do that it just might not happen. You should be careful if this is your first one. These adventure vacation cruises can quickly get to where they are so complicated so easily. Continued
