Overlooking the southern coast of Monte Argentario, the town of Porto Ercole is located about 15 km from Casa Ficulle. It is an ancient village still completely enclosed in the medieval walls built by Siena. You can access the old town only through a door under the Clock Tower. Once inside the town is possible to explore the alleys up to the most ancient part of the town. the Church of Sant’Erasmo. According to someone is it here that are placed the spoils of Caravaggio, that arrived in Porto Ercole already seriously ill while trying to escape from Rome.
