THE VALDICORNIA PARKS
Archaeological Park of Baratti and Populonia
The promontory dressed in green and the curved line of the bay frame the remains of an Etruscan city. The monumental Necropolis lapped by the sea, the Etruscan tombs cut into the rock of a former quarry which opens to the scenery of the forest that speak to us of the splendor of a civilization flourished on the manufacture of iron from Elba.
Natural Park of Montioni
Following the traces left by shepherds and hunters, loggers and charcoal burners, you enter in a natural environment populated by a large and varied fauna . In the heart of the park the signs of man emerge from the remains of the alum quarries and the mining village of the Napoleonic era wanted by Elisa Bonaparte Baiocchi.
A precious and rare humid forest, typical for the ancient coastal landscape of the Maremma, which has miraculously survived deforestation . An enchanted environment where getting lost among ancient oaks in the company of small fauna of the forest, and discovering, beyond the sandy dunes, the sea.
