Baratti

18Feb

The stretch of coast near the Gulf of Baratti will surprise you with the richness of its waters. After 4 years of trips and explorations into the depths of Baratti yet we are amazed of the beauty of the dive sites that we continue to visit and discover.

Bibbona

18Feb

Set in an environment of rare beauty, Bibbona retains the fascination of an ancient medieval village surrounded by green woods and countryside. Bibbona was built on a low hill and was already known in ancient times before it became an Etruscan settlement. It still preserves the typical layout of an old inhabited fortress. In the old town, where characteristic narrow alleys run into little medieval squares, the lovely 11th century church of San Ilario with its unusual trapezium shape is of particular interest.

Bolgheri

18Feb

Immortalized in the verses of Giosuè Carducci’s poem Davanti a San Guido: “I cipressi che a Bolgheri alti e schietti van da San Guido in duplice filar.”, this ancient village emanates a unique charm. A short distance from the sea, surrounded by countryside rich with vineyards and olive trees, the village is entered through a red brick castle, and is characterized by paved alleys and ancient stone palazzos adorned with geraniums.
