The province of Livorno

The province of Livorno  narrowly stretches along the coastline of the Ligurian Sea. So it’s no wonder that above all the area is famous for its magnificent beaches. You can choose between wide sandy, narrow pebble and rocky beaches among them. The small town of Castiglioncello hides in a charming bay among rocky banks. Its pebble beaches are not large, but the water is amazingly crystal and blue. Once M. Mastroianni  was fascinated by the beauty and elegance of this place, and bought a villa here. The National park borders the beaches between San Vincenzo and the Bay of Baratti. Wonderful pine air and designated paths attract those who like walking and cycling.

The towns of Livorno are resorts with well developed infrastructure. Cafes and restaurants, discos and clubs, facilities for doing various sports, such as tennis, riding, mini golf, mountain biking, riding, sailing, surfing and water skiing are at your service. Marina di Cecina, Marina di Bibbona, Marina di Castagneto Carducci, Piombino and many other small towns follow each other on the coastline. Many towns of  the Elba Island are also popular resort and active recreation destinations. Not only you can admire the charming nature of Livorno, but also you can enjoy the accomplishments of present-day medicine. Spa, thalassotherapy and other treatment are here for you to enjoy your vacation in full.

If you should get  bored with spending time on beaches you can easily switch to sightseeing. The area between Livorno and Piombino is often called the “Etruscan Coast”. Here you can visit archaeological sites and museums which keep the results of ancient studies. For example, the Archaeological park of San Vincenzo connects two periods of the ancient Etruscan settlement. The shift of civilizations is demonstrated by the Etruscan necropolis and the Roman curtain wall. The ancient Etruscan mounds have  been well preserved near Populonia.

The Elba is the most famous island of this region which presents a unique combination of relaxing and cognitive tourism.
