Follonica is certainly among the most favourite places on the Maremma coast, thanks to its mild climate and its shady areas which have made it an ideal destination for enjoying a summer relax with the whole family.
A particularly popular beach in the area is Carbonifera, immersed in the Sterpaia coastal park. Here, you can find fine sand dunes, a centuries-old lush pine forest, and a shallow seabed.
The hinterland is the perfect backdrop to this crystal-clear sea, with typical Tuscan villages including Montieri and Gavorrano. The latter lies on the side of Monte Calvo, preserving the typical architectural structures of the Middle Ages: the castle, arches, doors, walls and large turreted buildings allow you to walk in the timeless place, as if in another era.
Finally, the village of Massa Marittima is particularly charming with the magnificent Cathedral of San Cerbone and the Public Fountain, known as Fonte dell’Abbondanza.
