Necropoli Puntone, Manciano
Exploring hidden archaeological sites in the Maremma’s forests
Get up close and personal with the province’s prehistoric roots

The Maremma has been inhabited since prehistory and while many of its treasures have been carted off to museums, there are some incredible sites still hidden in its forests. This itinerary highlights the best examples of ancient architecture from prehistory to the Middle Ages.

We start in Saturnia, best known for its hot springs, but less appreciated for its ancient history. Leave the town via Porta Fiorentina. After about 100 metres, we arrive at Pian di Cataverna. Follow the signs for the Puntone necropolis. After 1km, a dirt road will open on the right.
