The summer season if full of spectacular and interesting events in southern Tuscany (Maremma), and there really are events of all kinds and for all tastes. Some of the most exciting events to take place in July and August are the prestigious polo competitions that take place at the Argentario Polo Club, located between Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano.
The Argentario Polo Club features 2 polo fields, a sand track, the stables and the Club House with its own restaurant. It borders with the 18-hole Argentario Golf Club, and overlooks the lush Mediterranean vegetation and the Lagoon of Orbetello.
Some history about the club: the idea of a polo club sprang in the 1980s from a group of players coming from Rome, Milan and South America. They wanted to enjoy playing polo in the beautiful seaside setting of the Argentario Promontory, conveniently located near Rome.
If you are traveling around the Argentario or the Maremma these days, do not miss the Coppa Italia FISE, which is taking place from the 31st of July to the 10th of August, starting at 5PM from Wednesday to Sunday. Entrance is free!
