Porto Ercole is one of Tuscany’s hidden gems and one of the two major towns forming Mont Argentario’s township. Monte Argentario is a peninsula rich in photogenic coves and beaches, full of untouched land and natural beauty. The landscape is fantastic, from the lagoon’s calm to the serenity of the encompassing mountains.
The old town or “Paese Vecchio” is worth a visit when you’re on holiday at Porto Ercole. In ancient times, this little town was protected by its fortresses, Forte Filippo, Forte Stella, Forte Santa Catherina and La Rocca. You’ll have an unbelievable view of the yachts, and bay from the Paese Vecchio. The Strada Panorámica has breathtaking views, and small beaches are also worth visiting.
Behind Porto Ercole and a stretch of beautiful panoramic cliffs is Forte Stella. This watchtower is a 16th-century military engineering masterpiece named for its 6-pointed star shape. From here, you have a view from the southern shore of the Argentario to Civitavecchia in Lazio.
Another must-see is Forte Filippo, which dates back to the 16th century and retains its grandeur intact with its four bastions set in a moat carved into the rock.
The artist Caravaggio, famous for his Baroque paintings, was exiled by the Pope and died in Porto Ercole in 1610 on his way back to Rome. His remains were buried in the church, and here you can also see one of the artist’s best works.
For lovers of fine white sand, there is the Feniglia beach which stretches for 12km. Hungry for something to eat? Come to the Michelin-starred II Pellicano Restaurant, where you can taste the delicious local dishes of the Chef with the local organic products of the season.
