Over 20% of the Costa degli Etruschi comprises Parks, protected areas, nature oases, and fauna reserves.
Nature is not just a setting, but the very essence of this land with its dense stands of pine trees, woods and countryside rich with colours and scents.
Of particular note are the Bolgheri WWF Oasis, a wet zone of international importance, the Magona Park and its biogenetic oasis, the Livorno Hills Park, which is of considerable historical-naturalistic interest, the Rimigliano Park flora and fauna oasis, the Orti-Bottagone oasis and the Sterpaia and Montioni parks.
The oases of Bolgheri, Bottagone and Magona, the Val di Cornia and Livorno Hills Parks, protected areas, botanical oases, reserves populated by rare and valued species, dense stands of pine trees and deep woods, countryside rich with colours and scents - safeguarded and protected, nature on the Etruscan Coast is not just a setting, but the essence itself of this land.
The smell of pines, lime-trees and tamarinds scent the air and blend with the briny smell of the sea. Mediterranean scrub and characteristic tomboli stretch down to the beach, almost reaching the crystalline sea.
A network of paths winds through woods of olive trees, holm oaks, cork trees and chestnuts to ancient villages and monuments.
The Wine Route is a journey for the senses and the spirit through fertile countryside stretching from the sea to the hillsides, where sunlight filters through the trees and sparkles on the vines.
The ancient thermal baths at Venturina, dating from Etruscan and Roman times, are a source of energy and coolness.
At Etruscan Coast, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
