With its beauty and fame, Massa Marittima eclipses almost every other town in the Maremma area of Tuscany. Massa Marittima is known as the ‘figlia nobilissima’ (noble daughter) of Pisa and Siena. Its origins lie somewhere in the High Middle Ages, when the hills around the city were mined for minerals. Despite its splendor, Massa Marittima remains a highly-under-visited town, overlooked by Italians and foreigners alike. On the bright side, this allows students taking this Filed Learning activity to enjoy a day out in a beautiful destination free from mass tourism and experience Italian culture at its best.
