The town of Baratti is a wonderful natural port where your vacation rental accommodation will have you close to many of the amenities associated with this area referred to as the Etruscan Riviera.
The Baratti beach with its warm waters and marine pine grove which offers shade during the summer months is steps away from many fine lodgings. Baratti is not only a beautiful beach with transparent water; it is the location of the important Etruscan necropolis of San Cerbone and il Casone. The archaeological Park of Baratti and Populonia
is one of the most important testimonials of the Etruscan culture that flourished and prospered in central Italy
before the arrival of the Romans. Within this 80 hectare park you will find the Via del Ferro (Metal Path) and the Via della Cave (Quarry Path)
that takes visitors along nature and cultural itineraries with the park. After a full day at the Archaeological Park you will be a short stroll away from your apartment or villa rental.
A winding road, which crosses thick vegetation, leads from the seaside town of Baratti to its hillside neighbour Populonia, an ancient Etruscan town that specialized in the smelting of iron. Populonia is situated on the summit of a hill and it is surrounded by the sea. Vacation rentals including villas and apartment rentals overlooking Baratti can be found here. The ancient town of Populonia still shows the old Medieval walls which had to preserve the town from pirates’ attacks. Inside the walls you can admire a small 14th century village with its two main lanes and its museum, rich with Etruscan and Roman archaeological remains.
On your drive down the hill to your accommodations in Baratti if you look very closely you may be able to see the face that has been carved into the rock. This may be the face of Fufluns the Etruscan god of wine
and the namesake of Populonia.
If you prefer you lodging (whether it is a condo or villa rental) close to restaurants, Baratti is the place to be. Local restaurant Cassena is literally located on the beach. Try the house special Cacciucco alla Livornese which is a rich fish stew with tomatoes and bread.
Also from the sea a paranza plate of freshly caught fried fish
. No matter what you decide your vacation villa or apartment rental will be a short stroll away.
