Its modern, well equipped marina attracts tourists from all over the world, looking for relaxing holidays with plenty of opportunities for sport and fun.
At Marina di Bibbona, the dense pinedwood stretching down to the beach and the clear sea is an inviting sport for walking, cycling and horse riding at any time of the year.
Al kinds of Mediterranean vegetation, as well as biogenetic oasis, are to be found in the “Macchia della Magona”, a splendid protected area that can be explored by following a network of marked paths and trails.
Many holiday farms in the countryside full of olive trees, vineyards and fruit trees offer hospitality and comfortable accommodation.
The fruits of nature and advanced agricultural practices provide the ingredients for the flavourful cooking of this area. Following the Etruscan Coast Wine Route, which passes through Bibbona, is a delightful way to discover the fine DOC wines of the area.
Bibbona, was built on a low hill and was already known in ancient times before it became an Etruscan settlement.
It still preserves the typical layout of an old inhabited fortress. In the old town, where characteristic narrow alleys run into little medieval squares, the lovely 11th century church of San Ilario is of particular interest. Santa Maria della Pietà, a renaissance church built in the shape of a Greek cross at the end of the 15th century, is situated right at the entrance to the town.
The medieval Old Town Hall symbolises the town’s rich civic history, which is preserved in the Council’s historical archives. Emotional events such as the Procession and the Cask “Palio”, which hearken back to folklore and historical traditions, are provided a truly striking setting in the village.
