A peculiar coast, touched by crystal clear water and crossed by itineraries immersed in nature, but also the warm hospitality of the maritime villages make people love Tuscany more, turning its seaside into the queen of the Italian coast. A 500 km-long coastline that alternates rocks and sand, with beach facilities and seaside resorts famous all over the world, can make your holidays truly remarkable.
Fun, nature and history are all available here, combined with high-quality accommodation, good food and some of the best spa centres in Italy. The gems of the Tuscan coast are a stone’s throw from sensational towns and cities of artistic heritage (like Pisa) and lovely historic villages.
The Etruscan Coast was the Etruscans’ access to the sea and today we can still see in the Acropolis, Necropolis and museums the copious traces that this ancient civilization left behind, especially in places like Populonia, which was their only seaside town in the entire territory.
Along the stretches of coastline between the sea and the mountains, along the Apuan Riviera and in Versilia, you can match a glamorous nightlife with a trip into the Apuan Alps. Further south, in the Maremma, the beaches are largely untouched thanks to the nature park that extends from the hills to the coast and to places far away from mass tourism. Between your swims in the sea, enjoy some sport activities: along the coast and on the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, go diving, horse riding and cycling along the countless trails.
