Would you like to know which champions train in Tuscany Maremma?

The popular Italian pop singer Jovanotti is a passionate biker. Few days ago, he travelled for 175 km throughout Tuscany, from his home in Cortona to the Amiata Mountain. Once arrived, he shared its wonder with his fans: “crossing the woods to reach the top, you understand why Etruscans considered it a magical place inhabited by gods. Go for a ride once, on foot or by mountain bike. It's a great place”.


Among the VIPs who have chosen to train in the province of Grosseto, there are also several national champions and Olympians.


Gregorio Paltrinieri, Olympic swimming champion, has chosen to train in Marina di Grosseto for the next open water races. Giorgio Chellini - Juventus and National team defender - decided to train in Castiglione della Pescaia during a holiday in the nearby Punta Ala.
