Maremma, Tuscany Beaches Among the Best in Italy

On my very recent trip to Tuscany I was in the Maremma area (Southwest Tuscany) famous for its wines, Italian cowboys, Etruscan ruins and beaches.  As I visited the Necropolis (burial ground) of Etruscans in Populonia.

While there, I was captivated by the beautiful colors of the sea and the seashore. So now I learn that some Maremma beaches are among Italy’s 15 best as chosen by the Italian Touring Club’s top 15 list for 2013.
