San Vincenzo

This is a coastal resort in the centre of the Etruscan Coast which has boasted a Blue Flag beach for a number of years. San Vincenzo is south of Pisa and Livorno and about one hour from Pisa airport. This area sees few British tourists, the Italians tending to keep this to themselves.

Apart from the beautiful soft sandy beaches there is a harbour where a number of boats are moored as well as several tourist boats taking customers to nearby islands. There is a railway station here where trains run south to Rome or north to Pisa.

This is a very authentic area of Tuscany offering very good value for money. There are a number of interesting places to visit nearby including Suvereto, which was once famous for cork production as well as the nearby thermal baths.

Livorno is also nearby.  This city hosts a castle and is known for its waterways. Piombino is also close and from there you can take the ferry to the island of Elba, a mere one hour trip.
