If you are attracted by the atmosphere of the sea in winter, just like me, this is the idea. Crowded and lively in the summer, Orbetello in Italy is appreciated even during the winter. The town is located on the lagoon on one of the three tomboli, the languages ​​of land separating the Monte Argentario and the Tyrrhenian coast bordering the sea, but unlike other seaside resorts only Orbetello is a city that you will never find it deserted.

Take advantage of the beautiful days of winter light to walk along the lagoon or press forward in the city center which has important evidence of the past. Particularly during the period in which this city was the capital of the State Presidium, the Spanish domination that garrisoned throughout the Maremma coast and the Argentario.

But then you have to eat the fish which they really know how to cook here. Before the doors from which you enter the town, on the right coming from the Aurelia is the point of sale as well as restaurants of all fish in the lagoon. The restaurant is managed by the cooperative of fishermen in Orbetello and is open for dinner only in winter and in summer. With a first, second dish and wine you will spend around € 20.
