City
“Suvereto, considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, is located between the hills and the shining sea on the Etruscan Coast. Immersed in the green Val di Cornia, the town is a treasure chest of wonders: its walls are home to characteristic medieval alleys, stone houses, historic palaces and evocative churches. All around are endless forests and chestnut, oak and, of course, cork trees, the latter being where the town gets its name from. Infused with the aromas of the Mediterranean scrub, Suvereto is a village rich in art and history, and stands out for its pleasant views and for being a place of tranquillity and relaxation.Thanks to the luxuriant countryside surrounding the town, agricultural companies produce incredible oil and wine so characteristic that they’ve been classified as DOCG. The Wine Trail passes through these trails, a route that allows visitors to learn, one stop after another, about the places where this drink draws all its impressive traits. Suvereto is so tied to the land and tradition that it’s become a town of crafts that are today rare pearls: blacksmiths, cork workers, carpenters, coalmen and chair menders all do their work here. These skilled artisans fortunately conduct their work with pride, dotting the village with their characteristic workshops. Dominating this little gem from the hilltop above, outside the town walls, is the Rocca Aldobrandesca, reminding us of the historic medieval settlement. The defense walls enclose interesting sites, like the Romanesque Church of San Giusto, the first thing that captures the visitor’s attention upon arriving in the town and flanked by a museum that conserves paintings, vestments and statues. An important painting can be found inside the Church of the Madonna di Sopra la Porta, a 18th-century building founded by a few very devoted locals. Having survived a strong storm, they wanted to thank the Virgin Mary with a church. Amongst the other religious buildings in the village, the Convent of San Francesco and its cloister stand out high up on a hill, built in the 1200s and which today hosts concerts and performances. Another interesting thing to see in the town is the Doll Museum, dedicated to the history of play and home to a large collection of pieces that span decades. Nature also dominates in this area, as can be seen in the Montioni Nature Park, nearly 7,000 hectares in size, where the Mediterranean scrub and dense oak forests are inhabited by wild boars, deer and porcupines. The ruins of alum quarries attest to the fact that even Elisa Bonaparte, sister of Napoleon, understood the potential of such a rich territory. ”

“Populonia is an ancient and extremely important Etruscan city; it is one of the 12 cities which make up the so-called Dodecapoli, the city-states which were part of Etruria, governed by a lucumone (similar to a king). The legacy of its illustrious past is still seen today in its small centre, filled with endless charm thanks to its location and spectacular ruins. Found at the top of a hill surrounded by the sea, the ancient town is located in a great position on one of the promontories that form the Gulf of Baratti and shows beautiful 15th-century walls constructed on the order of the Lords of Piombino.Previously known as Fufluna (from Fufluns, the Etruscan god of drunkenness) or Pupluna, it was the only Etruscan city found on the coastline. The ancient acropolis was located in the place where today you can admire the Poggio del Castello and Poggio del Telegrafo, towards the extreme south-west of the Gulf of Baratti. In the modern town, traces of the ancient city are visible, such as the Estruscan walls and ruins of Roman buildings. The medieval walls are also beautiful, put up to defend the town from pirates, as is the Fortress, built in the first half of the 15th century. Inside there are paved alleys, little shops and the private Gasparri Collection, which conserves the Etruscan and Roman ruins found in the city, under the sea and in the area in front of the sea. One street, which looks out onto some incredible views, connects Populonia to the Gulf of Baratti, where there are also some very important Etruscan sites. Here, you can visit the necropolis linked to the city in the Baratti and Populonia Archaeological Park, along with the ruins of the industrial quarter by the port; while in the neighbouring Piombino, there is the Populonia Archaeological Museum. ”

“La Rocca di Pietracassia è un castello medievale diroccato, posta a 532 metri di altitudine, tra i boschi della Valdera. Venne innalzata intorno a un grosso masso calcareo la cui caratteristica fenditura sembra abbia dato origine al nome della struttura: pietra cassa significa infatti "pietra spaccata".”
