Located in the middle of the Maremma Nature Reserve, Alberese is a frazione (suburb) of Grosseto. The village itself has only just over a thousand inhabitants. Its main attraction is the Villa Granducale.
Alberese (suburb of Grosseto)
Near the suburb, and especially in that part known as Area dei Templi dello Scoglietto, remains of various civilisations, starting in prehistoric times, have been found. Etruscan and Roman ruins have also been found.
However, the region is best known for its untouched nature, where herds of horses and the typical oxen of Maremma roam.
