Maremma, the surprising and little known-area in southern Tuscany, offers a variety of options for corporate events involving team building activities. Here are some examples:
Wineries – guided visits and wine tasting: Participants can discover the most characteristic aspects of Maremma Tuscany by understanding the processes behind wine production and the secrets of a sommelier. A unique experience during which you can admire the beauty of the vineyards, visit the wineries of the best local labels, and learn about the production and appreciation of wine.
Cooking classes: Discover a world made of genuine flavors and typical dishes of the Tuscan and Mediterranean cuisine in the kitchens of local restaurants. Cooking classes are usually carried out under the expert guidance of the executive chef and end with a delicious dinner during which the participants are able to taste their culinary creations. MaremmaBlog recommends the Dama Dama Restaurant in Porto Ercole for this kind of experience with a gourmet twist! Chocolate, cigar and rum tastings can also be organized here.
Cycling: Some areas of the Maremma offer particularly breathtaking paths along the rugged coast and in the Mediterranean vegetation, for example the Argentario Promontory – ideal for excursions in mountain bike. For those seeking a less adventurous experience, the rolling hills around Saturnia and the panoramic cycling path along the Orbetello Lagoon are just what you need.
Corporate golf clinics: There are some beautiful golf courses in southern Tuscany, and some are particularly equipped for corporate clinics. One of them is Argentario Golf Club, where Head Pro Emanuele Canonica (winner of the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in 2005) coaches in the academy using not only his expertise but also modern tools like Trackman IIIe for swing analysis.
Horse riding… and Butteri cowboys: Maremma is a corner of paradise in southern Tuscany, where you can enjoy unforgettable rides between nature, culture and gastronomy. Stables are open all year round allowing for on-site training and organizing rides in the countryside. During some times of the year it is possible to go horse-back riding on the sandy beaches. And you can watch the local Maremma cowboys, called Butteri, perform their tricks with wild horses and cattle.
Sailing: The boat is ideal for creating cohesiveness and a sense of belonging. The participants of the team building activities can enjoy a fun challenge on a sailing regatta on the magnificent waters of Monte Argentario, near the Islands of Giglio and Giannutri.
Nordic walking: The nature paths up and down the hills are great for Nordic walking, and there are also dedicated trails in some nature reserves and historic hamlets, which allow visitors to admire the most different and beautiful landscapes of the Maremma.
Other sports: Some resorts offer the opportunity to find more than one sports option on site, maximizing the amount of activities that team building participants can carry out. One such example is the Argentario Resort Golf & Spa near Porto Ercole, which features the above-mentioned 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, five-a-side football/soccer pitch, modern gym with fitness courses, indoor and outdoor pools, and even paths for jogging and Nordic walking.
