Wherever one goes in Tuscan it is possible to come across
ancient remains that pre-date Roman times. Typical of
these are the Etruscan necropoli that can be found throughout
There are even Etruscan remains in
the archipelago’s islands of Gorgona, Capraia and Isola d’Elba,
the so called “Tyrrehnian Pearls” that are rich in archaeological
artefacts and tourist facilities. Antique civilisations
have left their legacy in the Province of Livorno in the form
of crafts, arts, food and wine.
What to visit, typicall and cultural destinations
Other sites not to be missed are: Montenero with its splendid
Sanctuary overlooking the sea, Castagneto Carducci approached
by an avenue lined by century-old cypress trees,
from San Guido, Bolgheri the characteristic Tuscan village
that is the centre for world-renowned Supertuscan wines
and Castiglioncello the exclusive holiday destination frequented
by many Italian stars.
For somewhere quieter there
is the unspoilt bay of Populonia in the Gulf of Baratti. Populonia
is also an archaeological site with a number of Etruscan
necropoli. All these places are within easy reach of the
Port of Livorno.
[Castiglioncello] Castiglioncello, the “Pearl of the Tyrrhenian,” is a place where artists come to stay. It is renowned for its sea and its refined, relaxing atmosphere.
The Etruscan Coast Wine Route offers the opportunity to taste some of the most prestigious wines in the world and admire the area’s natural and artistic wonders. Carducci sang the praises of Bolgheri and its famous avenues of cypress trees. Etruscan ruins can found at Populonia and the Gulf of Baratti offers a breathtaking panoramic view.
