Livorno / Leghorn - This corner of Tuscany, between
Livorno and Piombino, is called the Etruscan Coast.
The beautiful beaches and the green Mediterranean ma-quis,
south of Livorno, are landscapes which have only been partially
tampered with by man, but which retain that peace and that
beauty which also stimulate the pleasure of knowledge. There
are protected habitats in oases, wildlife refuges, parks and
reserves which give shelter to roe and fallow deer, badgers
and porcupines, falcons and flamingos.
There are hills covered in woods and punctuated by medieval
citadels, tempting gulfs overlooked by fishing villages. This
is a land which never ceases to surprise. And which offers
ideas for alternative holidays in the open air, on the seafloors
populated by a great variety of fish, in the seas ploughed
by dolphins and striped dolphins, in the old town centres
abounding with monuments and in places which have marked important
chapters of our history and poetry: the avenue of cypresses
that inspired Giosue Carducci, winner of the Nobel prize in
1906 and the greatest Italian poet of the turn of the century,
forms the approach to Bolgheri.
