Two forts, Filippo and Stella, dating back to the Spanish period of power flank Porto Ercole. It still has its charming fishing village feel and a slower pace of life than in the northern part of the island.
Stroll around the historic centre and check out the Chiesa di Sant’Erasmo where Caravaggio’s tomb is. Continue your walk by visiting the fortress located up a steep climb.
There is a very popular beach too.
