  We live history in the MEDIEVAL VILLAGES
True architectural treasures, rich with history, come to life in the evening among the characteristic trattorie which offer tasty and traditional dishes, accompanied by splendid wines, fruit of a rich and diverse land.
bibbona e marina di bibbona Bibbona (1km) Nestling in the hills, Bibbona still maintains the appearance of a medieval village, with a plan formed of a series of concentric circles joined by narrow alleys and steep stairways..
Bolgheri Bolgheri (7 km) Bolgheri has always been linked to the memory of the celebrated poet Giosuè Carducci, who moved here in 1839 at the age of four. In actual fact its history stretches back much farther, as its origins lie in the medieval period. The village formed around the castle of Gherardo della Gherardesca, who ruled the Maremma region.
castagneto carducci Castagneto Carducci (24 km) Almost by chance, in recent years the countryside around Castagneto has become the capital of nature tourism. In the list of environmentally-friendly resorts drawn up by Legambiente, Castagneto Carducci comes top in Tuscany and third in the world; it has also been awarded the Blue Flag - given by the EU to coastal destinations which have achieved the highest quality in water, facilities, safety, environmental education and management - six times in the last ten years.
campiglia marittima Campiglia Marittima (34 km) The territory of Campiglia Marittima stretches along the Val di Cornia, facing the Gulf of Follonica and San Vincenzo. From the hills, which follow the path of the wine road – the Strada del Vino Costa degli Etruschi – there are wonderful views of the Tuscan Archipelago and the northern coast of Corsica. 
Populonia Populonia (44 km) 10 km from Piombino, on the road to San Vincenzo, is the turn-off for Baratti. A picturesque natural harbour close to a fascinating Etruscan necropolis.
borghi medievali suvereto Suvereto (47 km) Suvereto, which stands on a hill not far from the sea, is one of the oldest towns in the Val di Cornia. Its origins date back to the collapse of the Roman empire, when for reasons of military security the coastal populations moved inland to the hills. The town’s political history is inextricably linked to the strong character of the inhabitants, who have always been noted for their great originality.
massa marittima Massa Marittima (72 km) lies in the area known as the "colline metallifere" (metal-bearing hills), known since antiquity for the abundance of metals. The town is famous for its beautiful main square, Piazza Garibaldi, overlooked by the Duomo, the Palazzo dei Priori, and the Palazzo del Comune. The Duomo, built in Pisan Romanesque-Gothic style, is particularly fine. The Palazzo del Comune is also in Romanesque style.
