Porto Ercole

painting-in-italyThis pretty seaside resort is one of the most famous in Tuscany. The fortresses of La Rocca, Filippo, Santa Carolina and Stella dominate the hillside above the natural harbor. Everywhere you look there are reminders of a time when the town was controlled by the Spanish in the 16th century.

During their affair in 1962, Liz Burton and Richard Taylor left the set of Cleopatra and fled to this beautiful area of Tuscany. They managed to dodge the paparazzi and their spouses!

Porto Ercole is a beautiful place to enjoy the seaside, good seafood and to relax in the salty Tuscan air. This is a picturesque little port that is worthy of your time in Tuscany.

  • Our stay at Le Casacce will always be a glorious memory. By the time the trip was over, we already missed our new friend, Linda. We came home filled with tales of the sights we had seen, the excellent food we had eaten and the good times made possible by Tuscan Muse
