Piombino is a seaside town that, from the promontory in front of the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, stretches out over the waves, from the Etruscan Coast towards the horizon. Its is a territory of great beauty, which still tells its most ancient history linked to the Etruscans thanks to the finds preserved in the Baratti-Populonia Archaeological Park, while the traces of the medieval era can be glimpsed in the architecture of the historic village, such as the massive city walls and the Torrione, elements of defence and protection from external attacks, and the Fonti di Marina, where ships were once supplied. The soul linked to the sea, on the other hand, let itself be narrated by the beauty of the coast: the Gulf of Baratti, the Buca delle Fate, the Spiaggia Lunga and those of Cala Moresca, Perelli and Torre Mozza are just some of the enchanting places this area offers, amidst sand and rocks, pine forests and Mediterranean scrub. And finally, the sea in Piombino is what gives the sense of the journey: its port teems with life at every hour of the day and night; ships, boats and ferries leave and arrive from the nearby islands. Again, as in the past, one scans the sky to guess whether the weather will be clement. Again, it is the sea that decides - as yesterday, as always.
