Cecina is one of the best locations for family holidays on the Tuscan coast. The city is full of attractions for adults and children both on the beach and in the historic center. The coastal pinewood of the Tombolo di Cecina Nature Reserve and the city water park are two very popular and appreciated places for families wishing to stay in Cecina.
Those who choose to explore the surroundings of the country and the hilly area a few miles from the sea are spoiled for choice.
Ideal for family excursions are the small villages of the Val di Cecina area such as Riparbella, Montegemoli, Montecatini, Miemo. These are villages of medieval, Etruscan or Roman origins that have preserved intact in their historic center the magical atmosphere of those times.
Walking along the city streets you will find churches and medieval public buildings, but also high defensive walls of even more ancient origin.
One of the favorite destinations for family excursions around Cecina is the historic village of Volterra, just 40 km away. Immersed in the Tuscan countryside, the historic center of the city hides medieval and Renaissance treasures of incredible artistic and architectural value including the Jewish ghetto, Palazzo dei Priori, the Medici Fortress.
