we are staying one week at the Maremma coast in July and would like to find the good beaches (with two kids age 5 and 8), nice villages, places to eat - and the best way to visit the Island of Giannutri. We stay about 20 km inland from Grossetto.
I understand we can not go to Giannutri by car. There are restrictions to the number of tourists, but emailing various park-addresses and tourist informations to make a reservation /apply for entrance has not been fruitful. So if someone could help me:
- how do we apply for entrance /make a reservation if we decide going by the ferry on our own?
- recommendations on full-day boat trips that will allow easy snorkeling with the kids and some time on the island (several stops?). I guess then that tour companies will arrange with needed permissions.
- general tips on good places to visit, coastal or inland, in Maremma are appreciated. With the kids in mind:)
