Study abroad programs in Orbetello, Italy:

Orbetello lies in the Maremma, one of the wildest and most beautiful regions of Tuscany. It's a region of valleys covered with olive and Mediterranean maquis (evergreens), where horses and wild boar roam. On the hill summits, tiny villages bear witness to the legacy of ancient Etruscan centers. The most striking feature of the region is the sea - particularly Costa d'Argento - 50 kilometers of coast between Talamone and Capalbio.

Inside the triangle is a lagoon, and in the center of the lake is Orbetello. Orbetello is a departure point for all excursions to the inland parks and beaches, offering all the amenities of a popular tourist destination. The city walls even include portions of the original Etruscan wall.
