: Piombino Marittima
Piombino is a town at the Tuscan coast, opposite the island of Elba. Piombino itself has a lovely beach bay called Calamoresca. Surrounding Piombino there are several sandy beaches, two of them stretching for miles. To the north there is the Etruscan Populonia with Etruscan museum and tombs to visit and the famous bay of Baratti. To the south of Piombino there is the Parco Costiero della Sterpaia, a coastal nature reserve, which is great for walking or cycling. Behind that stretches the Maremma, a rural area that has preserved its rough and rustic character. Piombino has a picturesque historic town centre with little shops, restaurants and wine bars. Here you can sit outside, dine well, relax and enjoy the Mediterranean atmosphere. Passing by the renaissance town hall you soon find yourself on a town square built on top of the cliffs high above the old fishing harbour. Here people take a stroll and look at the great expanse of the sea. The view of the island of Elba is spectacular.
