Fodor's Review

The largest town in southern Tuscany, Grosseto is the capital of the Maremma. First recorded in the 9th century as a castellum (castle) built to defend a bridge and a port on the nearby River Ombrone, the town is now a thriving agricultural center. Badly damaged during World War II, it has been largely rebuilt since the 1950s, but a small centro storico (historic center), protected by defensive walls that follow a hexagonal plan, is worth a short visit on your way to the coast.
