Pitigliano is a very beautiful town of the Area del Tufo, situated on the road which links Grosseto and Viterbo, close to the Bolsena Lake and the Saturnia Thermal Springs. Pitigliano is one of the most important towns of the Città del Tufo, including Sovana and Sorano.
It is easy to reach by car from Vacanzemaremma campings and hotels (40 minutes) surrounded by nature in the Maremma countryside.
Acknowledged among the most beautiful towns of Italy, Pitigliano’s nickname is The Little Jerusalem because, from the 16th century, it was the refuge for a lot of Jews. The village is on the top of a hill, on tuff stone; while arriving you are going to be stunned seeing how rocks melt with the walls of the houses. People who choose to visit Pitigliano at sunset will benefit from an unforgettable view, in fact, with the light of the moon, the town seems suspended in space.
Pitigliano’s history begins centuries ago, its legend tells the village was founded by two young guys who fled from Rome, but the town has surely a more ancient origin. We know in fact that in this area, the Etruscans created their Vie Cave, handmade roads built in the rocks to link and protect their communities or the fascinating necropolis for the deceased.
Today Pitigliano is a jewel of a town thanks to its art, culture and history. Every street of its historic centre is full of elements from the past, narrow alleys, small squares, panoramic views, in Pitigliano everything is magic and will give you an unforgettable feeling.
