Natural beaches and nightlife
Castiglioncello is a hamlet of Rosignano Marittimo, in the province of Livorno, a seaside destination known and preferred for the quality of its beaches and also for its nightlife.
It is located on the Etruscan Coast, against the backdrop of the green hills of the Maremma that reach the sea with the fresh pine forests and the lush Mediterranean scrub, right next to the coast.
In the 1960s, the film Il sorpasso by Dino Risi was filmed here and, in a short time, Castiglioncello became a well-known tourist destination for film stars. As early as the1800s, the Macchiaioli gathered here to paint the Tuscan landscape. They were hosted in his estate by the patron Diego Martelli. Today, it is frequented by tourists and residents in the area who love the tranquillity of the hidden coves by day and the lively nightlife at night.
The most famous beach is the Bay of Quercetano, but it's also worth discovering the lesser-known corners of the coast, such as the cliff of Fortullino, the Bay of Orange or Le Forbici beach, which can be reached via a little path. For those who love the roughest sea, the right place is Punta Righini. This is where the Alberto Sordi promenade that reaches the Nautical Club of Castiglioncello starts.
