The wonderful region of Tuscany is well known for its amazing artistical treasures that you can find by visiting nearly every city in the country. However, don’t underestimate the beauty that lies upon its shores, as you might find an opportunity for having a cultural holiday while relaxing on the beach.
Just a hint, remember that not all the beaches in Italy are free, so ask the hotel staff if there are discounts for their private ones or which are the nearest free beaches.
Nightlife is the main aim of your holiday? Even if nearly every city in Tuscany has plenty of pubs and discotheques, Versilia’s coast, surely holds some of the most beautiful beaches near them. Forte dei Marmi is by far one of the most well equipped litoral zones for clubbing, and its coast is renowned for the amazing and sometimes secluded beauties that need only to be uncovered. Mostly, you’ll find huge golden sanded beaches, equipped with every comfort where to relax and enjoy the mild climate, but, you could discover many different and astonishing places that can be reached within.
If you’re in love with archaeological sites but wouldn’t ever lose the opportunity of having a bath in the Mediterranean sea, the Etruscan coast is, by far, the best place where you will love to spend your days.
Prevalently with sandy beaches, from the golden Baratti to the darker one of Piombino, it’s called the Etruscan Coast for his numerous necropolises that have been there for nearly 2,000 years. Here you will find the secluded CalaViolina, which is reachable only with a 20 minute walk from the city of Scarlino.
If instead history doesn’t suit you, take a look at the strange and wonderful beaches of Rosignano. Here you will find an artificial white sand and transparent water, thanks to the near Solvay industrial plant.
If you prefer rocky seaside, then you’ll have to visit the coast near Livorno, where you will find the splendid natural pools of Castiglioncello.
