Why visit Suvereto
Suvereto is an Orange Flag town, an award given by the Italian Touring Club. This small village is an open-air work of art, because the buildings that make it up date back to 1200 and are beautifully maintained. In addition to the architectural beauties, don’t miss the view from the fortress: from the top you will enjoy hills that will bring your gaze down to the sea, in a whirlwind of shapes and colours.
Suvereto, one of the most beautiful villages in Tuscany
There are many beautiful villages in Tuscany, from Anghiari to Capalbio, but also Giglio Castello and Lucignano, and of course Suvereto. Together with Massa Marittima and Campiglia Marittima, Suvereto is one of the villages near Follonica that offers a breathtaking panorama stretching from the hills to the sea in a whirlwind of colours that leaves even the coldest person on earth spellbound. Here we want to tell you about Suvereto, just a few kilometres from Pappasole, the ideal place to retrace the less recent history of this region. After all, you can find as many medieval villages in Tuscany as you like, but Suvereto is well worth a visit because it is perfectly preserved and walking through its cobbled streets really does take you back to a distant era, perfect for unplugging and living a few hours in total relaxation. This town was first mentioned in a document in 937, which attests to its existence and life since the early Middle Ages. It is precisely this era that is imprinted in the walls and architecture of this village. Here you find stone houses, arches, the Palazzo Comunale dating back to 1200, the Rocca Aldobrandesca, the convent of San Francesco, everything speaks to you of the dark ages of human history. It is no coincidence, therefore, that Suvereto has been included among the most beautiful villages in Italy.
Suvereto and the area’s wine and food tradition
In addition to the historical fascination it arouses in every traveller, Suvereto is highly appreciated for its culinary tradition and passion for wine. Since far-off 1968, this village has celebrated the Sagra del cinghiale (wild boar festival) every December, attracting many people to the area from towns near and far. During these festive days in the village you will taste the typical products that local companies provide for this occasion. You will taste oil, wine, wild boar dishes of course, but also dishes based on other game available in the area.
All this is available throughout the year, so even in summer, with the difference that you do not breathe in the festive air, but it is still worth a try. To experience the festive and folkloristic atmosphere, just participate in the Palio di Suvereto, also known as the Palio delle Botti, held in May and August. Or you can take part in one of the mediaeval evenings held in July and experience the town populated by people dressed in period costumes, attend performances by musicians and jugglers, and why not stop for an excellent typical dinner in one of the town’s many restaurants. If you are looking for a hotel in Suvereto, you will not find many, as it is easier to find agriturismi or similar things, but our advice is still to sleep with us and still enjoy a visit to the town.
