So, while you are enjoying La Cerreta, you may find it nice to visit…
A few minutes by car from La Cerreta and you can reach splendid villages of historical importance, where charming views and the narrow streets and steps winding around the houses pulse with the rhythms and culture of living “alla Tuscana”, in the understanding of time, the pleasure of good food and wine, and conversation that is genuine and witty. Sassetta, Suvereto, Campiglia Marittima, Bolgheri, Massa Marittima and Populonia are the places closest to us, but we cannot exclude Monteriggioni, Volterra, Montalcino and Certaldo.
Stretching for more than 150 kilometers between Livorno and Monte Argentario, the coast offers everything from fully equipped beaches and hidden sandy strips to rocky coastline accessilble only to hiking enthusiasts. It is right for anyone wanting to plunge into the sea and sunbathe during spring and summer, but also for anyone wanting to enjoy the sunsets and breathtaking views between sky and sea and to breathe in the sea air from off the waves.
Islands of the Tuscan Archipelago
Tuscany’s sea gems are scattered between the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Seas: the islands of Elba Gorgona, Capraia, Giglio, Giannutri, Pianosa and Montecristo, the latter having received the Council of Europe’s Diploma of Protected Areas and visited only with special authorization. It takes between 40 minutes and 2 hours by ferry from the harbors of Livorno, Piombino, Porto Santo Stefano and Rosignano to discover true corners of paradise, natural parks, marinas, coves and beaches nestled into the rocky coastline.
Once ancient Etrucscan and Roman settlements, Tuscany has a high concentration of cities and art centers that boast an outstanding cultural wealth due to its museums, castles, old buildings, city walls, historical residences and gardens, and finally churches and cathedrals that bear testimony to the most flourishing periods of monumental Italian architecture. A regional and national heritage to preserve, discover and learn more about with every visit.
