In the Province of Livorno in Tuscany, the town of Piombino faces the Island of Elba and is the ideal starting point for exploring this island via its port in Piombino Marina. The Tuscan coastline includes a variety of landscapes, from beautiful beaches in the North to the rocky headlines towards Castiglioncello in the South. This is where the famous Etruscan Coast begins, offering a succession of beautiful beaches up to the promontory of Piombino. Close to Populonia, the superb Gulf of Baratti is a very popular holiday destination during the summer months. Sand dunes, maquis and vast pine forests alternate along the Tuscan coastline and you can discover the many Etruscan necropolis too.
