## About Gavorrano and surroundings
Situated on the northern slope of Poggio Ballone, east of Scarlino in the province of Grosseto, the village of Gavorrano has ancient origins: traces of the Etruscan civilization can be found. Gavorrano is part of the “Colline Metallifere”, an area rich in traditions.
Monuments and places of interest within the town limits include the Palazzo Comunale, the Teatro delle Rocce (an impressive outdoor concert theater created from a former quarry), the Rocca di Frassinello, a winery designed by the internationally famous architect Renzo Piano, and the Pieve di San Giuliano, the main church.
Gavorrano, the Castel di Pietra, was mentioned as early as the 13th century by Dante Alighieri in his Divine Comedy.
In addition to wine, olive oil is also produced in the town.
Nearby areas of interest include Vetulonia and Roselle (archaeological) and Massa Marittima (medieval town). Thermal spas can be found in Venturina Terme, Petriolo and Saturnia. A bit further afield are the important cities of Siena, Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Rome. Elba Island and Sardinia are reachable from the port of Piombino. Beach lovers have a plethora of choices nearby.
Nearby services include the Coop supermarket, a post office, two bars and restaurants, a pastry shop, a pharmacy and police station. Further services are found in the village of Bagno di Gavorrano.
The Gavorrano train station provides direct regional service to towns including Pisa, Florence and Grosseto. Longer distance service is available by going to (or changing in) Grosseto, Follonica or Campiglia Marittima.
