DISCOVER THE NATURAL BEAUTY THAT SURROUNDS GLI ETRUSCHI
The Gli Etruschi agritourism is the perfect base from which to visit and discover the many beautiful nature parks and reserves in the area. It takes no time at all to reach the Etruscan Coast or the Val di Cornia and the trails and signed routes waiting to be explored alone or with a guide, some of which are perfect for trekking.
The many nature parks and reserves in the general Piombino area include:
The Sterpaia Coastal Park
The Montioni Nature Park
The Baratti & Populonia Park
The Rimigliano Coastal Park
The Poggio Neri Forest Park
The San Silvestro Archeo-mineral Park
The Monti Livornesi Park
There are also interesting trekking trails in the following areas:
The Calafuria Nature Reserve
The Chioma Valley
The Macchia (scrubland) della Magona
The Castagneto Carducci
The Promontorio (headland) di Piombino
We can help you organise and book a day out in the fresh air, exploring different trails and taking in the uncontaminated beauty of the nature and animals that characterise life in this area. Back at the agritourism at the end of your day, there is still plenty of opportunity to relax in the green, peaceful countryside that surrounds us and simply wrap yourselves in the welcoming atmosphere, whilst curious animal lovers can also explore the farm.

AMAZING AND CAPTIVATING WALKS
The best way to make the most of your stay with us is to allow us to suggest the best walks to do based on the time you have available and the opening hours of the various parks nearby.
Meantime, let us give you a brief glimpse of some of the walks past guests have enjoyed the most and that have allowed them to get to know the magnificent countryside within striking distance of the Gli Etruschi agritourism.
The Sterpaia Coastal Park boasts a trail that is almost poetical, combining beach and woodland, revealing aspects of the area’s history amidst its trees, flowers and other plants, all explained by the various informative and illustrated boards scattered throughout the park.
The Baratti & Populonia Archaeological Park is home to the Via del Ferro, Via del Monastero, Via della Romanella and the Via delle Cave trails that take from between one and a half and two and a half hours to walk, offering amazing views and yet more history.
The San Silvestro Archeo-mineral Park is the ideal choice for anyone interested in archaeology and mineralogy with easy, intermediate and advanced walks that take between one and one and a quarter hours to complete.
The Poggio Neri Forest Park is known for two walks – La via del Carbone & the Museo del Bosco – (the Charcoal Trail and the Woodland Museum), both of which allow you to get close to nature and get a glimpse of the world of charcoal burners and chestnut gatherers.
