Etruscan Coast

Etruscan Coast

From the Etruscans to the finest wines

The Etruscan Coast is a long stretch of coast that goes from Livorno to the promontory of Piombino and includes numerous municipalities in the province of Livorno. On the coast there are some of the most famous seaside resorts in Tuscany such as Castiglioncello, San Vincenzo and Marina di Bibbona, while in the hinterland we find delightful historic villages such as Suvereto, Campiglia Marittima, Sassetta and Castagneto Carducci.

The name Costa degli Etruschi is linked to the presence of numerous Etruscan finds that lived here in remote times, especially in the area of ​​Populonia, founded by them, and in the area of ​​the Gulf of Baratti where today the Parco archeologico di Baratti e Populonia is located. The history of this area is also linked to the exploitation of the mines; in this regard, there is the Parco Archeominerario di San Silvestro which is dedicated precisely to this production activity.

The Etruscan Coast is also rich in naturalistic areas, such as that of the Parco costiero di Rimigliano and that of the Sterpaia, ideal for hiking, cycling or horse riding. The sea here is among the most beautiful in all of Tuscany, there are many perfect beaches for a holiday with children and also some stretches where dogs can be brought.

This is also a land of great wines, along the long avenue of cypresses that branches off from the small oratory of San Guido on the Via Aurelia, you reach Bolgheri where some of the greatest wines of Tuscany are produced such as Sassicaia and Ornellaia .

A holiday on the Etruscan Coast is a holiday dedicated to the sea, nature, good wine and also culture.
