Florence has its Renaissance charm, Siena has its narrow streets with red-brick medieval palaces, and Lucca has its historic city wall and its air of elegance. These are the landmark locations that come to mind in Tuscany. Livorno, however, is a city rarely visited by tourists, so it has a straightforward, honest appeal, with a lot to offer for food lovers!
Along with Livorno, visitors can add the Etruscan Coast to their travel plans. The coast gets its name from the Etruscans who chose this area, with Populonia, as ideal places to build their communities. Populonia was, in fact, the only Etruscan city on that coast.
Cuisine, postcard-perfect scenery, history, and archaeology: The Etruscan Coast has a lot to offer for a long-weekend trip.
