Begin your cultural excursion, by hopping on a free shuttle bus from your port and heading to the rendezvous point of Largo della Pace SNC, where your transfer vehicle awaits you. You'll board the comfortable vehicle and head to Capalbio to explore the iconic Tarot Garden. French artist Niki de Saint Phalle purchased land atop old Etruscan ruins in the late 1970s and created this iconic sculpture garden based its architecture and design off of the mysterious tarot. Saint Phalle's design also draws inspiration from the likes of iconic sites like the Watts Towers and Parco dei Mostri and features a garden of 22 monumental sculptures.

Stroll through the Tarot Garden and witness the inspiration Saint Phalle drew from first hand as you observe the intricate details of the 22 monumental sculptures of the Tarot Garden. You'll catch visions of mosaic works of art in vivid primary colors as well as a play on contrasting shades of human and beast like figures, and mosaic glass structures. Conclude your tour by heading to Capalbio downtown district to a traditional restaurant to enjoy a delicious Tuscan meal on your own before heading back to your port.
