Reviewed 25 April 2017

Two girls on the road trip in Toscana wanted to have fish and some special adventure to go with it. Our local friends had a quick suggestion - you gotta drive to Talamone and see Paolo! And we did!!
Talamone is a very charming little city on the coast.. We were lucky to enjoy a lunch at Paolo's home along with few other external guests. Every dish wowed us of our feet - fresher than what was cought this morning and cooked just in front of us is not possible!! Food was seasoned to perfection and accomodating wines were just perfect!!

We have learned a lot about Paolo's involvement in the sustainable fishing - his energy and personality is worth admiration!

I would definitely love to come back for a boat tour adventure!

Many thanks to Paolo and the family! We will never forget our Easter Trip to Tuscany :)

Thank I B

Eight of us went out on the trip . We had a fantastic time . The trip started with Paolo pulling in the nets . Folks were in listed to help getting the fish out of the nets. Although Paolo couldn't speak English he could communicate with us anyway and was so friendly. We then went to a lovely beach. On the way back we had a lovely lunch with wine . We also visited the cave . The scenery was so special. We totally enjoyed this day and would fully recommend

I found this tour because of the site listed below. It was one of the best tours I've run across. A hidden secret! Paolo is one of the most passionate people I've ever met. While he doesn't speak English he does his best to communicate with his guest who don't speak Italian. He's very well published in National Geographic, Food & Wine, and more. The trip costs about 100 euro for the whole day and this includes breakfast, lunch, cave tours, private beach, and more! This area is truly the heart of Tuscany! A must see and do.

Take a trip out for the day with a Maremma fisherman by Donna Stiles- See more at: http://www.maremmaguide.com/things-to-do-in-maremma.html#sthash.0XOJqiJF.dpuf
In the small port of Talamone you will find the fishing boat of a Maremmano fisherman and environmental guide by the name of Paolo Fanciulli. Featured in many of the official Tuscany tourism videos for Maremma, Poalo offers visitors the possibility of a whole day out at sea fishing with him whilst he tells you about the sea creatures and plant life that you will see and the environmental issues that face these coastal waters. You get to eat some of the catch in the nets as he and his assistant grill the fish and serve it along with other local speciality foods for lunch. Depending on which trip you take, you can also get to see the spectacular coast of the protected Parco Regionale della Maremma from the sea. With a stop-off on the beautiful, did I say beautiful, white sand cove of Cala di Forno, to which access is restricted from land (the footpaths are closed throughout the summer) and requires a difficult six hour and 12.8 km trek when they are open! You get to get there by boat. Contact Poalo via www.paoloilpescatore.it
