When people think about summertime beach going in Italy, the famous Amalfi coast in Campania (southern Italy) is the first place that comes to mind.
Few realize that Tuscany has some of the most beautiful beaches in all of Europe.
When the staff at the Tenuta Il Poggione (where the Mazzoni wines are made) takes its summer vacation (the last two weeks in August), most go to Castiglione della Pescaia, about an hour’s drive from the winery.
