Relax by the sea, walks in the hills covered by a dense Mediterranean bush, visit to the most important art cities of Italy, boat trips of the wonderful Tuscan Archipelago ... this and much more awaits you in the enchanting setting of the Etruscan coast.
A stretch of about 5 km between Livorno and Quercianella is characterized by a particularly evocative coast overhanging the sea, known as Il Romito, where the signs of the ancient sighting posts (the Torre di Calafuria and the Sonnino Castle) emerge.
Along the cliff, an integral part of the system of the Livorno Hills, the gorges of Calafuria and Calignaia open, separated by the promontory of the Sassoscritto, from which it is possible to see the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago on the horizon.
Going further, just after the Cala del Leone is the small town of Quercianella (four kilometers from us), surrounded by the green of the Mediterranean Macchia, where you will find comfortable bathing establishments.

Livorno is the ideal destination, also as a reference point, to plan the departure by ferry to Corsica and Sardinia.
This is the ideal starting point for those who love Trekking and Mountain Bike.
In the area there are a myriad of routes and thanks to the "Sentieristica Nel Parco" project, it is possible to take a variety of paths from the simplest to the most demanding on the basis of athletic training.
Famous is "The Pilgrim Path": in this territory over the centuries there has been the passage of many travelers who along the Via Francigena (Canterbury - Rome - Jerusalem), used as an alternative route this part of the hills of Livorno, finding welcome, already in 1100 BC, in the Eremo della Sambuca alla Valle Benedetta.
Of the "System of Protected Areas of the Leghorn Mountains", besides the Monte Nero Forest (Omonimo is the Santuario Di Montenero), they also include: Chioma Park (Grotta dei Briganti), Foresta Valle Benedetta, Colognole and Parrana S. Martino.
In the general imaginary, when we talk about Tuscany we immediately think of Florence and Siena, wonderful cities to get lost, but there is also much more: Livorno has a special charm thanks to its unique history that makes it a city open to any culture and religion.
Stroll along the seafront, contemplate the way and go for waves from Terrazza Mascagni, take a look at the wonderful structure of the Central Station, built at the beginning of the '900 in Art Nouveau style, stroll in the most authentic area of ??the city or the covered Central Market and the Mercato di piazza Cavallotti where you will see a slice of Livornese life that will captivate you ... and then again, the Old Fortress and the New Fortress, the imposing Monument "I Quattro Mori", the Municipal Aquarium, the Ancient Cemetery of the English, take a "Ponce" in a local "La Venezia" district ... and much more awaits you !!
Livorno has given the Natali to various Artists such as: Amedeo Modigliani, Pietro Mascagni and Giovanni Fattori to whom the "Civic Museum" has been dedicated, where, inside the wonderful Villa Mimbelli, the works of the great artist and other "Macchiaioli" are exhibited .
