Castle Mago is the former residence of Leopold II, Grand Duke of Tuscany. It is situated between the renowned cities of Siena and Lucca, in a triangle of high quality wine production. Notable are Sassicaia and Ornellaia. Today this magnificent "Historical Residence", offers the chance to experience history with all the modern comforts of the 21st century. The castle is open during the summer months and is rented weekly as an exclusive, private villa.
As this is a land famous for the production of DOC and DOCG wines known all over the world, one of the recommended activities is a tour of local producers, such as Sassicaia and Ornellaia. Tours should be booked in advance directly from the castle. Visits can be personalized according to taste and expertise. Wine experts will guide and assist you throughout the itinerary.
Castle Mago is located on the Etruscan Coast in an area with many tourist attractions, including historical sights, art, culture and cuisine. With its splendid medieval towns and landscape, the Etruscan Riviera has many interesting things to discover.
Some places and events worth mentioning are:
- Campiglia Marittima with its festival "Apriti Borgo" (medieval festival, August).
- Suvereto with "Calici Sotto le Stelle" (wine festival, August).
- Bolgheri and its renowned wines, such as Sassicaia and Ornellaia.
- Populonia and Baratti's Etruscan tombs.
- The beautiful Elba Island.
- San Vincenzo and its "Palio della Costa Etrusca" (horse race on the beach, Easter Monday).
- Massa Marittima with "Balestro del Girifalco" (May & August).
A visit to the outstanding Castle Mago will make any holiday an unforgettable experience.
Castle Mago was built during the first decade of the 16th century and became the residence of Leopold II, Grand Duke of Tuscany, during the reclamation of the Maremma land.
Leopold II was born on 3 October, 1797 in Florence and died in Rome on 29 January, 1870. He was the last Grand Duke of Tuscany, reigning from 1824 and abdicating in 1859.
Castle Mago was been the residence of many Grand Dukes of Tuscany, but Leopold II lived there the longest. Documents dating back to 1529 demonstrate the existence of a former palace that was renovated to become the administrative headquarters of the Campiglia Marittima Railways.
In 1860, the Castle passed into the hands of the Merciai family, who transformed it into a "Historical House" open to all those who wished to enjoy an unforgettable holiday while discovering this beautiful land rich in history and art.
Subsequent works carried out since 1900 have been supervised by the Italian Institute of Fine Arts. Today, the castle represents one of the most important monuments of the Tuscan Maremma.

Olive Oil Tours
Another very important production in this area is olive oil. We suggest a visit to a local olive mill, "Fonte di Foiano" which is located in the characteristic medieval town of Bolgheri. Here, guests can discover the fascinating process of oil production and savor it directly from the source. This tour is often combined with wine tours for a day filled with good food and natural products. Tuscany exports these products worldwide, enriching the cuisines of diverse cultures.
Dive into the past when the Etruscans treated themselves to a bath and massage in this unique and fascinating atmosphere where today guests can experience harmony and relaxation. Discover the reinvigorating effects of the natural hot springs (36°C) at “Il Calidario,” just a short distance from the Castle. The "Thermarium" facilities offer relaxing massages such as Ayurvada, Shiatsu and foot and palm reflex treatments.
Boat trips are a perfect way to discover the beautiful Tuscan islands of Elba, Giglio and Giannutri. The stunning coastline and crystal clear sea provided for a day of total relaxation.
Cooking demonstrations are recommended for groups. Typical Tuscan dishes are prepared for the experience of the flavor and aroma of high quality ingredients. The lessons are held in the kitchen of the castle.
Town & City Tours
For those who are passionate about culture, art, and history, guided visits to the famous cities of Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Firenze, Volterra and San Gimignano are excellent. Also recommended are visits to the surrounding medieval towns of Massa Marittima, Populonia and Baratti, Suvereto, Campiglia Marittima, Castagneto Carducci and Bolgheri. Rich in history and traditions, guests can still feel the magic of the past that has made Tuscany the "Pearl of Italy".
Golf & Tennis
For those who enjoy tennis, there is a sports center with tennis courts near the castle. For golf lovers, just 30 minutes away is "Il Pelagone" golf club, surrounded by olive trees and rows of cypresses. It has the international standard 18 hole course, golf school, large driving range and two putting greens. It is perfect for professionals and beginners alike. Another nearby renowned golf club is the "Punta Ala" club.
Palio di Siena
Siena's "Palio delle Contrade" is among the most heartfelt festivals in Italy. Here religious and social elements are fused together in a fascinating spectacle of historical and cultural traditions, culminating in a final horse race in "Piazza del Campo", where pride and competitive spirit between the "Contrade" are exalted. This tradition goes back to the 11th century, and today "Il Palio" is held twice a year on July 2 and on August 16.
For nature lovers, a 3 to 6 hour horseback ride is an memorable way to discover hidden treasures. This tour can be arranged inside one of the most important fauna centers of the Maremma, the "Parco dell' Uccellina". This is the perfect choice for appreciating the landscape and culture of Italy, while enjoying a good ride over the characteristic cypress-lined hills, which are landmarks the "Butteri Maremmani" (Tuscan cowboys) used as reference points on their journeys.
