What to do


Baratti Bay


Canessa Camere are located at the end of the beautiful Baratti Bay, a hidden jewel between Piombino and Livorno.   


Hundreds and hundreds of years ago, this part of the Tuscan coastline was one of the most important Etruscan settlements; Populonia, an ancient Etruscan town especially noteworthy for its archaeological remains, is located just over top of the the Baratti bay.


Nowadays there’s a little tourist harbor on the far left end of the bay, which adds a further timeless atmosphere to this place.


Nature and art


Just behind the wonderful beach there’s a thick pine forest with beautiful paths for walking and cycling.


If you’re fond of diving and snorkeling, moreover, you’ll certainly meet your match here! 


A few minutes' drive away, you can also visit the medieval villages of Castagneto Carducci, Campiglia and Bolgheri, famous for their Tuscan cuisine and wine, as well as the Venturina Spas.


Pisa and Florence are, respectively, at one and two hours' drive away.
