The Tuscan coastline can be roughly divided into three areas. Versilia ,with its golden sand beaches stretching from the border with Liguria for about 20km. Fashionable resorts such as Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio belong to it. The region from Livorno to Piombino is called “Costa degli Etruschi”, named after the Etruscans, an ancient population who lived there before Roman times. The beaches are whiter here and hide some special places such as the Gulf of Baratti towered over by the Etruscan town Populonia, or the tiny beach of “Buca delle Fate” . No less appealing is the inland wine region where world famous wines such as Ornellaia and Sassicaia are produced.South of Piombino marks the beginning of the Maremma region, the least travelled and wildest area of Tuscany. White beaches alternate with cliffs and small bays. whilst further inland are scattered villages, farmland and endless sunflower fields. Whichever part of the Tuscany seaside you choose, perfectly clean waters and a gorgeous landscape await you.
