Tuscany is the ideal destination for sea lovers! You can take your pick from a lot of different beaches.
Marina di Pisa and Tirrenia are great for families who need a break but still want to ensure they get top-quality service. There are lovely pine groves and bikes that can be used on the beach.
Liberty-style Viareggio is an excellent option if you're looking for an attractive town nearby. Plus, Forte dei Marmi is worth checking out. In the nearby interior, Pietrasanta is also a gem that has authentic charm.
The drive from Livorno to Castiglioncello is scenic for all of its 18.5 kilometers (about 11 miles). The panorama is excellent, with deep blue on one side and lush green hills on the other.
To the south is a stretch of long golden beaches perfect for families. The best can be found in Vada, Cecina, Marina di Bibbona and Marina di Castagneto Carducci.
The hills and valleys of Tuscany are full of charming small towns like Bolgheri, Castagneto Carducci, Suvereto, and Campiglia Marittima.
The Etruscan Coast is the stretch of coast between Livorno and Piombino, in northern Tuscany. Its name derives from its Etruscan past, which includes Populonia, the only settlement built on the coast. The necropolis in Populonia offers a great view of the Gulf of Baratti.
One of the most famous parts of Tuscany is the "Costa d'Argento," or Argentario Coast. You can find some of the best beaches in Tuscany along this coast. It's less built up than other areas of Tuscany, and it's known for its clarity and vast, accessible beaches. This area generally feels 'wilder' than other parts of Tuscany.
Along this stretch of coast, you'll also see old fishing villages, such as Porto Ercole and Talamone. The area has lovely sandy beaches, safe waters, and many different places to explore.
