Keen golfers will be delighted to know that there are no less than a dozen 18-hole courses in the region from Castelfalfi near San Gimignano, up in the hills to Argenterio and out on the Argenterio peninsula. Golf widows and widowers may be less delighted with this knowledge.

Sports and Activities
Why not spend a day in the saddle and explore the lovely hills of Tuscany? Great fun for all the family.
The clear waters of the Mediterranean are ideal for diving – and with all that rich history of wars and trading, who knows what you’ll find hidden in the deep? There are plenty of diving centres between Livorno and Argentario offering equipment and courses.
Pop on a mask and explore the undersea world around the island – the crystal clear waters are ideal for snorkelers and divers. If you prefer to be on top of the water, why not take a trip around the island by kayak or test the waves on a windsurfing board.
The best way to explore this region and get up close to nature is walking! So grab a map, pull your boots on and load up your rucksack for a great day out filled with sunshine and fresh air. There are plenty of villages to stop off in along the way.
