Uncontaminated nature dominates the long coastline of the Etruscan Coast. The lush wind from the Tyrrhenian Sea brings with it the ancestral history of these places and an energetic salt breeze. The White Beaches between Rosignano Solvay and Vada emerge as a candid oasis in the green of the wild Macchia Mediterranea. The Val di Cornia Park, an extensive area of rare beauty, hosts various places of archaeological and naturalistic interest. Populonia, one of the most important Etruscan-Roman cities and the magnificent Gulf of Baratti, tells the story of the people who settled there. Going inland, the medieval villages perched on the gentle hills, dominate this area from above. Suvereto, core of Maremma Livornese, is known as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Sassetta is a small wooded village with a great treasure: thermal and beneficial waters flow at 50°, rich in trace elements and minerals. The famous Bolgheri cypress trees inspired the words of Giosuè Carducci in the poem “Davanti a San Guido”. It is in the areas surrounding this village, thanks to the cool and sunny microclimate, that some of the most famous and prized wines in the world are produced, which can be accompanied with the best of Tuscan food and wine.
