Populonia – a long history, peaceful, and cliff top vistas over the sea: a corner of paradise in the heart of the Maremma.
You are bound to be captivated by the charm and tranquil air that Populonia exudes from the moment you arrive.
An amazing panoramic road, with views over the Gulf of Baratti and the village itself, links Populonia to the sea, whilst the village’s main road is lined with small, artisan’s shops selling typical products, a restaurant and of course a bar with outside seating where you can relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
The castle’s tower affords a 360° view over the whole headland, and the islands of Elba, Corsica, Capraia and Gorgona put in a magical appearance above the blue waters of the sea.
A visit to the Etruscan museum, home to one of the most important private collections in existence, offers the opportunity to appreciate many of the artefacts found in the archaeological park nearby.
The simplicity of the little church of Santa Croce in the square is also quite captivating.
