Etruscan Coast

Territory overlooking the Tyrrhenian coast, once the land of the Etruscan people, traces of which are still scattered. This part of Tuscany, rich in beaches, hills and medieval villages is a destination for discreet, quality tourism, seeking immersive sensations and experiences in genuine Tuscany.

The splendid islands of the Archipelago; sailing cruises to get in touch with turtles, cetaceans, dolphins or swim in one of the many coves; the pine forests by the sea that blend with the green of the Mediterranean maquis, in a path made of cultivated fields, rows of vines, centuries-old olive trees and rows of cypresses. All this and much more is what is most intense in an area still largely unspoiled and far from large-scale mass tourism.

#To be seen 

Borghi medievali
(Massa Marittima, Campiglia, Suvereto)

The beautiful medieval village of Suvereto, named one of the Most Beautiful Villages in Italy, is definitely worth a visit. Characteristic alleys, romantic views and picture-postcard corners, the Borgo stands out on the slopes of the hills overlooking the sea and the Etruscan Coast and is a true jewel of Tuscany.

Campiglia Marittima, of very ancient origin, houses in and around the village suggestive evidence of Etruscan, Roman and medieval civilization.

World-famous for its wineries and characteristic Cypress Avenue, Bolgheri is a gem of the area rediscovered and loved by locals and tourists alike. The village developed around the medieval castle and today offers many alternatives to tourists. 

Strada del Vino e dell’Olio

The Strada dell’Olio e del Vino on the Etruscan Coast, the area once the cradle of this ancient civilization, is the birthplace of Sassicaia, one of the most prestigious wines in the world. Opportunity to be able to learn about local traditions, discover the artistic beauty of the most beautiful villages in Italy that are hidden among so many natural beauties. 

Spiagge e Pinete

The beaches on the Etruscan Coast stretching from Piombino to Follonica are known as the East Coast beaches. They are all similar in characteristics, with clear sand, shallow waters and crystal clear water. Behind the beach a beautiful pine forest provides shelter for tourists during the hottest hours, with wooden tables and benches for picnics and afternoon rests. 

#Funfacts e curiosities

The ancient and cultured Etruscan civilization chose me in the ninth century B.C. to found Populonia, its only coastal town, and I jealously preserve its traces still alive in an open-air museum: from the acropolis, to the temples, to the lower town to the harbor, every step is a journey into the memory of this great people.
