In contrast with the
destinations overrun with tourists all-year-round this magical part of Tuscany
is more modest and far less crowded and is definitely worth a visit. Travelling by car will help
you make the most of the ravishing medieval villages and find sandy beaches linked by winding roads.
For those interested in history the Archaeological Park of Baratti and Populonia still has various original Etruscan sites. Livorno and Piombino are the gateways to the captivating islands of the Tuscan archipelago, like Sardinia and Corsica. Elba Island has all the allure of a Mediterranean island: sun drenched sandy beaches, good cuisine, boat trips, and outdoor activities.
Not to be missed
Combine relaxation on one of Elba´s islands beaches with a glass-bottomed boat trip to observe the fantastic marine life.
