Etruscan Coast

The coastline, and the immediate hinterland, between Livorno and Piombino is known as “Etruscan Coast”. It is one of the most suggestive areas of Tuscany where there is a unique harmony between art, history and landscape.
The territory is famous for the presence of numerous archaeological sites dating back to Etruscan and Roman times. Today, much of this historical heritage is accessible to the public and can be visited all year round in museums and protected areas. The most visited archaeological park is that of Baratti and Populonia, located just a few kilometers from Fattoria Palazzeta.
The Etruscan Coast is also characterized by wonderful sandy beaches, clear sea and cool pinewoods of the coast. These Mediterranean forests separate the beach from the inhabited centers located along the coast and create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere.
They are the green lung of the territory, crossed by a dense network of paths ideal for hiking and walking, mountain biking or horseback riding.
Inland there are some of the most characteristic medieval villages of Tuscany. Riparbella, Rosignano Marittimo, Bibbona, Castellina Marittima, Montescudaio, Gaurdistallo are just some of the best known and most visited countries. These are ancient villages that have remained almost unchanged in their medieval or renaissance appearance. Over time they have not undergone drastic transformations, so they are still today gathered around their original nucleus, often perched on the top of low hills. They enjoy an extraordinary panoramic view that reaches the sea.
