TUSCANY'S SCENIC DRIVES: THE PICTURESQUE ETRUSCAN COAST
Nevertheless, one of the main reasons why people love visiting this area is the presence of the many archeological sites (pic n°2)(pic n°4) (pic n°6) and museums of great interest. In fact, the name given to this coastline is not accidental: this area used to be inhabited by the Etruscan people (starting from the ninth century B.C.), and many archeological remains have been found here.
A not-to-be-missed destination is the Necropolis of Baratti (pic n°2), featuring lots of Etruscan-time tombs and built right in front of the sea, near the village of Populonia (pic n°6). Also, you should visit the Etruscan museums in Piombino, Rosignano, and Cecina, where you will have the opportunity to go in-depth into the history, habits, and lifestyle of these ancient people.
