Castagneto Carducci, poetry is at home

Il piccolo centro di Castagneto è circondato da campi coltivati, lunghi viali su cui si susseguono, altissimi, i famosi cipressi protagonisti di tante foto.

Leaving Castiglione, head back on the E80 towards Donoratico, then, when the road leads to the hinterland, you will reach Castagneto CarducciA small village with ancient traditions, Castagneto is among the most popular places of the Etruscan Coast.

Perched on a hill a few miles from the sea, the town of Castagneto was built around the imposing medieval castle standing on the highest point of the village. The nearby Bolgheri, with the cypress trees protagonists of Carducci’s famous poem, is a truly iconic symbol of the Tuscan countryside.
