Charming hilltop fortress town with spectacular views. The walk around the fortress wall was pretty spectacular. The Tuscan landscape and the sea beyond it was so unbelievably beautiful. The town itself was pretty quiet since it’s off season but still was worth the visit.

You definitely should take a walk through old Cabalbio. It’s super cute with its narrow corners and the wall around.

Well worth a detour if in the area, Capalbio is an unspoilt hilltop village with stunning views across the rolling hills of olive groves down to the nearby coast. There is a maze of tightly packed winding lanes, a surprising choice of places to eat...More
