Notes: The itinerary can be completed in a single stage by cyclists in good physical condition, with the return journey by train on the Piombino – Campiglia - Livorno line. cycling tourists can complete the route in 2 or 3 stages. Much of the second part of the itinerary passes inland and offers possible detours towards Marina di Bibbona, Marina di Donoratico and San Vincenzo.
1) As there is very heavy traffic on first stage from Livorno to Quercianella, it can be done by train. Alternatively, you can go inland through the Livorno hills via Gabbro, Castelnuovo Misericordia and Rosignano Marittimo and rejoin the itinerary at Vada.
2) The last part of the itinerary, between Baratti and Piombino, goes through an industrial area on the outskirts of Piombino. if you are using a hybrid bike or an mtb, we recommend taking the dirt road that runs from Reciso (Populonia) across the Piombino headland to Salivoli (7km) in a series of rises and descents and uphill spurts, then downhill.
