What to do at Capo d’Uomo
Capo d’Uomo’s most obvious attraction is of course the beautiful sea that surrounds it, though both on the Argentario and immediately on the mainland there are many sites to visit or activities to do.
On the Agentario, the small port of Porto Ercole is surrounded by huge fortresses, where Caravaggio ended his days, and is lovely to visit, while Santo Stefano and Orbetello also have their own charm.
The Argentario, aside from many lovely beaches and water activities such as sailing and scuba diving, offers great restaurants, golf, polo, shopping, spas, tennis, walks and much more.
Santo Stefano also offers a ferry service to the Island of Giglio, which has its own splendid coastline, while both port towns offer boat charter, which is a great way of seeing the Argenatario.
Just over on the mainland, the typical Tuscan villages of Capalbio and Magliano are interesting to visit, not least for their excellent restaurants, while close by is the Parco della Maremma: a national park that offers riding with the butteri (Italy’s version of the gaucho) and long walks, as well as miles of unspoilt beaches. Saturnia is natural hot sulphur spring, used since Roman times, is worth a visit to sit in its hot cascading waterfall. A little further but still within an easy day trip are Tarquinia, famous for its Etruscan tombs and Archaeological Museum, Rome, and Siena.
The local village of Santo Stefano offers all the basic amenities, including banks, a chemist, a doctor, a post office, a supermarket and all the typical shops one might need. Full information is provided to guests on arrival.
