Campiglia Marittima: In this historical and traditional rich town with medieval castle you will find all the streets with its houses and picturesque alleys arranged in circles. This creates an impressive town picture. The old part of town is located on the inside of the ring walls and includes the church San Giovanni (build in the Tuscany romantic style), the church San Lorenzo, craft shops, restaurants, wine bars and the city hall with museum.
(Campiglia Marittima) Venturina: One of the most beautiful historical villages of the Costa degli Etruschi is this community located on a hill site. The hill dominates the ocean and the surrounding landscape. Here, in the heart of the Val di Cornia you will be able to witness the conservation of the Etruscan roman and medieval culture. You can see the early medieval melting ovens in Val Fucinaia originating in the 7th and 8th century and the archeological mining park of San Silvesto now a majestic open air museum and the famous thermal springs of Caldena that were known already during the antique and still can be used today (perfect for rheumatism, inhalation, fango and for allergy suffering patients).
Costa degli Etruschi:
The Etruscan coast is located in the middle of Tuscany and presents a lively Mediterranean alcove where the ocean found an unity with nature, art and history. The coast stretches over more than 90 km and hosts hills, huge olive groves and various extremely rich vegetation. The wide and white sandy beaches of San Vincenzo, Vada and Baratti alternate with the deep beaches with dark sand of Cecina, Bibbona and Castagneto. Everything around breathes the happy and magical sense of Tuscany: here the guests can choose between recuperation, culture, natural adventure or favorite sporting opportunities. All of these aspects are present and ready to enjoy: exhibitions, ballet with international standards, folklore plays, concerts, horse races, discotheques and walks by the ocean offer the chance for an unforgettable adventure and the opportunity to get to know the country and the people.
The Etruscan did value very much the area where she lived, worked and traded. The death sites of Baratti and Populonia testify in an outstanding way the melting of nature, culture and death traditions. Important witnesses of their lives, their culture and their art are also in Vada, Cecina and in the museum of Rosignano and Cecina. Very descriptive are the explanations of the working phases and techniques for the mining of iron ore and other metals in the archeological park of San Silvestro by Campiglia.
The ocean is the soul of the Costa degli Etruschi.
It lives in history, in the landscape and provides the sunset with light, and its scent glides into the mildness of the air. You can see the ocean from all the medieval towns and the hills. It offers the center and the middle point and borders on deep pine forests as well as the green landscape full of Macchia.
You will find the alternation of white and dark sandy beaches and cliffs that were created by the wind. There will be a variety of bays, old towers that were used to protect the area from pirates and they now rise like broken teeth out of the hills.
This is the ocean where the Etruscan traded their goods, where they settled and where they created the unique necropolis at the coast in Baratti. Today the depth of the ocean still hides treasures of nations and cultures that frequently used the trading street of the Etruscan coast.
At the end of the 19th century the first public Italian swimming pools were build in Livorno as the people discovered the beauty of a beach vacation for tourism.
The EU awarded Castiglioncello and Marina di Castagneto with the environmental sign of the blue flag for the outstanding quality of the ocean water that indicates the quality of the towns San Vincenzo, Baratti, Vada, Bibbona, Donoratico, Rosognano, Cecina, Quercianella. Those towns are harmonically embedded in the green of nature, shady pine forests and are not too far to the old communities at the hills that create the culture-historical core of the area. This landscape is fascinating in every season.
The nature park of Colline Livornesi is important and touching with its history as well as its untouched nature and it spreads from Livorno to Collesalvetti and Rosignano. Their ways curves through endless forests of moor herbs, evergreen cross thorns, flowers, stone oaks, cork oaks and pine trees. In the park Magona by Bibbona you will find ways and roads that stretch more than 50 km through the forest, which is a biogenetic oasis of the C.N.R.. Here you can view a variety of vegetation: the deer, big horns and squirrels in their natural habitat.
Over 20 percent of the territory consists out of parks and nature conservations. For example, directly by the ocean is the oasis of Bolgheri, which is the first animal protection area of Italy. In the botanical oasis of Orti-Bottagone, 12 km from Piombino, where you will view the sweet and salt-water swamps one can find flamingos, ibises and cranes. The Magona park by Bibbona hosts in the incredible forest a biological zone. This zone is the home of deers and big horns. The Rimigliano Park besides San Vincenzo, is a lavish oasis that hosts one of the most beautiful beaches of the Costa degli Etruschi.
