Only seven kilometres of Maremma plain and lush crops separate the historic centre of Tarquinia from the Lido di Tarquinia, where a tourist promenade welcomes the visitor, who can stroll among restaurants, bars and establishments.
it is by proceeding from the mouth of the river Marta towards the south that the points of greatest interest of this coastal area are revealed. Massive stone walls shine on the seashore near what in ancient times was the commercial port of Gravisca, renovated and expanded on the order of Pope Clement XII in 1738 and for this reason today called Porto Clementino.
A few kilometres further south is the picturesque, flat and brackish landscape of the Tarquinia salt flats. Already known in antiquity, they were used until 1997, when it was decided to transform the high humidity area into a reserve that welcomes an interesting variety of flora and fauna, a birdwatching paradise.
On the other hand, those
who prefer to spend a day among the dunes and waves will appreciate the natural environment of the beach of San Giorgio and the Baths of San Agostino, not far from the mouth of the river Mignone.
