Tuscany's scenic drives: The picturesque Etruscan Coast


   
 
Itinerary: Livorno, Castiglioncello, San Vincenzo, Baratti, Piombino
 
The Costa degli Etruschi is one of the most coveted Tuscany scenic drives for the beaches and the archaeological sites:

The Costa degli Etruschi (Etruscan Coast), one of the most coveted and picturesque Tuscany scenic drives, stretches for 90 kilometers along the coast, that overlooking the Mediterranean sea, from Livorno to Piombino. Many white sand beaches characterize almost all the area, except for some few locations, such as Baratti (pic n3) and Castiglioncello, where the red granite cliffs predominate.

The "Costa degli Etruschi", with bathing establishments, free beaches, tourist resorts where you can find hotels and campgrounds, waits thousands of tourists every year not only for their holidays, but also for the many archaeological sites (pic n2)(pic n4) (pic n6) and museums to visit.

The name given to this coastline is not fortuitous. In this territory, once inhabited by the Etruscans, were discovered many archaeological sites. Go visit the Necropolis of Baratti (pic n2), near the village of Populonia (pic n6), or the etruscan museums of Piombino, Rosignano and Cecina. You will have the opportunity to get in touch with the history and customs of an ancient people.
