  • The distinctive feature of this place is its microclimate. In fact it is a small peninsula surrounded on three sides by the Tyrrhenian and Ligurian Sea. This Cape already Principality of Piombino, was fortified with 400 works of Leonardo da Vici, which remain part of mighty turreted walls that surrounded the Citadel. From the sea we arrive at porto mediceo, well preserved where you can visit the "sources" by the look, with features animal heads and low relief of "snakes in love" for the same period. At the top of the Citadel, just above the poticciolo there is a museum with exhibits that represent the Etruscan origin of the city built on the headland. Here arose the iron age which the Foundry activity of the ancient Etruscan testimonies exist in the coast towards Populonia "Buca delle fate". of iron smelting there about this the remains of primeval wood ovens. Even in the years of autarchy gathered this slag melting process, the ore-rich due to the low temperatures of a merger with the wood. Industrial archaeology and burial chamber which characterizes the area where the promontory ends with the beautiful Gulf of Baratti. A green hilly area crowns down the promontory extending into the sea between the Gulf of baratti and the Gulf of Follonica. This geographical location gives them a very special microclimate, very mild even in winter. Really cold days in February, can be counted on the fingers. Here do not sell coats, they boast the PARAMESWARAN. For those who love the Tracking, the headland has a equipped paths appropriately reported in several trails that cross it. Calamoresca starting point, a charming Pebble Beach cala equipped, an excellent restaurant and a typical road surface level in wood with unforgettable panoramic views of the channel of Piombino. Here you can do with sandwiches, get a drink, relax before starting one of several paths to this Green promontory. A tip try hidden in the Mediterranean the ancient chapel of San Cerbone.

  • For tourists who know little about these places must remain a few days and just start from Calamoresca promontory. From here there are two routes (marked) that truly are unique of its kind. Going along the Sea you can drive right to Ditch the reeds along the cliff where you see the channel of Piombino, Elba and Corsica. Taking the path inside a ring that co door towards Populonia and back. When you arrive at Populonia there is the possibility to go down to the cliff of Buca delle Fate that is a real show. More don't say, you must try it.
