In Tuscany, the Etruscan Coast (Costa degli Etruschi) extends over 90 km, from Livorno to Piombino, and has a succession of rocky outcrops and sandy beaches lined with small pebbles. The beaches on this coast have kept all their charm; they are open to all and have basic services. You can relax here with confidence in the shade of the pine forests, and taste of iodine from the Mediterranean Sea. The waters of the beaches of the Etruscan coast are ideal for scuba diving, sailing or windsurfing. Trattorias and restaurants are strung along the coast where you can sample the delights of fish and seafood, not to mention regional wines. The Etruscan sites you'll find along the coastline testify to the history of the region.
