The name of this coastal area is linked to the presence of the Etruscan people, who lived here from the 9th century BC.

In the area of the Gulf of Baratti, between San Vincenzo and Piombino, we find the most significant evidence of the colonization of these lands by the Etruscans.

The Etruscan Coast includes the areas of the Val di Cornia Parks, which include the Baratti and Populonia Archaeological Park and the Rimigliano and Sterpaia Coastal Parks.

The Baratti and Populonia Archaeological Park jealously preserves the vestiges of its glory in an open-air museum: from the acropolis, to the temples, to the lower town, to the port, every step is a journey into the memory of this great people.

The Necropolis
Necropolis of San Cerbone
In the Gulf of Baratti, these are princely tumulus and aedicule tombs from the Archaic age
Necropolis of the Caves
In the upper part of the Park are Etruscan calcarenite quarries, which alternate with chamber tombs from the Hellenistic period.
Monastery of San Quirico a.k.a. Benedictine Monastery of the 11th century, is located in a wooded area and can be reached by a well-marked path from the Reciso parking lot and towards the area of the Necropolis of Caves.

  • Acropolis of Populonia

    From the Etruscan Coast it is easy to travel to one of the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, five of the seven sisters that form it are part of the province of Livorno, Gorgona, Capraia, Elba, Pianosa and Montecristo
  • There are numerous destinations that we can easily reach from San Vincenzo whether by day or fraction.

    Or more simply, those who wish can stroll along the wide sandy shoreline that stretches from the Conchiglia northward to Marina di Castagneto, an uninterrupted stretch of marine coastline. Virtually unspoiled, dominated by Mediterranean scrub and dune systems, it offers its best in the early morning hours and at sunset when we can enjoy even more fascinating scenery.
