A suggestive and fascinating itinerary between flavors and odors of Mediterranean forest and saltiness could be this.
Early in the morning, you can take your car to discover Baratti, Populonia and if you like trekking you can also reach that heaven called “Buca delle fate”, among wood, vegetation, Etruscan pieces of evidence and sea, a sea which spreads in front of you suddenly and it will leave you breathless. At this point, I would say that diving into the water is almost a duty, especially after the long walk. So you can eat a sandwich on a rock or more comfortably on the beach, then around 15:00 you can go back on the path and on the way to Pappasole why don’t make a stop at Poggio Rosso to taste its fantastic wines? If you picked up the coupon at the reception and you made a reservation, you can visit the vineyards and cellars at a 5% discount. You will have the possibility to enjoy them in the quietness of the location and you can allow yourself a wine tasting which you will not easily forget.
For those who like archaeology, history and nature, in our surroundings, there is a world to discover. We suggest reaching Piombino where there is the Archaeological Museum of Populonia’s area. Here you can admire the pieces of evidence from the prehistoric times to Late Antiquity. Don’t forget to visit the amphora of Baratti, a silver masterpiece, the symbol of the museum and of the entire area. The multi-sensory trail also permits a different and pleasant visit for both children and adults.
After the visit you can keep your eyes on the horizon, maybe going to Piazza Bovio. From that terrace on the sea it is possible to admire Elba Island and if the weather is good you can also glimpse the other islands: Corsica, Giannutri, Giglio, Montecristo and Capraia.
If you are tired of admiring the enchanting landscape in front of you, you can go toward the Castle where you can visit the Museum of the Castle and medieval pottery. (For discounts to visit Val di Cornia parks, ask at the reception).
Coming back to the car you can also get across the old town. You will have the possibility to wander in the alleys which will show you corners to discover and to photograph in order to keep a memory of a magical and fascinating city.
Our area offers different and wonderful landscapes… For those who like nature and thermal baths, why don’t take advantage of an afternoon at Calidario Terme Etrusche? Here you can immerse yourself in the historical natural source forgetting all in the name of relaxing and wellness. If you like you can also take advantage of the services offered by the SPA and allow yourself a massage, a sensory shower or Turkish bath.
If you are relaxed enough and not too tired you can carry on and discover Campiglia Marittima or Suvereto, two fascinating medieval villages which will give you wonderful landscapes, good wine and good food… so why don’t take advantage of an excellent dinner at sunset before going back to Pappasole?
