Porto Ercole, a suburb of Monte Argentario in the area of Grosseto, is a small village of about 3000 inhabitants, located on the Eastern side of the Argentario promontory, along the Tuscan coast that flows through the Giglio Island to the East.

Included in 2014 among the most beautiful villages of the Italian peninsula thanks to its brilliant beaches, its crystal clear waters and the mild climate, Porto Ercole offers visitors an unmissable view on its bay from the top.

Distant 40 km South-East of Grosseto and only 12 km from Porto Santo Stefano, the second most populated village of the Argentario after Porto Ercole, the natural paradise of this ancient Etruscan center is today one of the popular tourist destinations in Tuscany.

In Porto Ercole you can enjoy a stroll along the narrow streets of its charming old town, which is not accessible by car, and visit the Church of St. Erasmus, the Convent of the Passionist Father or its imposing fortresses.

Forte Stella, one of the unique constructions among the sighting towers of the place, was designed by the namesake architect and is now one of the best examples of Spanish military architecture.

Forte Santa Caterina, that recently became privately owned, is another fortification of Spanish origin from the early eighteenth century that overlooks the East Porto Vecchio.

If you pass by Porto Ercole in the spring season (March and April), there are two events you can not miss out: the Night of the Pirates, a nice treasure hunt that invites anyone who wants to dress up as a pirate to follow their crew in the race, and the Palio Marinaro, a rowing challenge between

four districts of the territory.
