"I cipressi che a Bólgheri alti e schietti,
Van da San Guido in duplice filar..."
Capital of the municipality, this small village stands on a hill from which you can see the Tyrrhenian Sea and, on the clearest days, some islands of the Tuscan Archipelago. From our farm it can also be reached in about 30 minutes with a pleasant walk through the countryside.
You can visit the Castle area, around which the town was built in the Middle Ages. It is a pleasure to get lost in the alleys, the ancient narrow streets and the squares, including the one where once was located the pillory, an instrument to tortured the condemned. The fifteenth century Churches of S. Lorenzo and S.S. Crucifix are worth a visit, as well as the House where Giosuè Carducci lived in his childhood and the Archive Museum dedicated to his life and works.
From the Town Hall, going down through the Borgo, you arrive at Piazzale Belvedere, from which you can enjoy the fantastic view of the stretch of sea overlooked by the entire Municipality of Castagneto Carducci.
Interesting to combine with a visit to the Archaeological Park is a visit to the Archaeological Museum of the Territory of Populonia, which is located in Piombino and houses important Etruscan finds unique in the world. In Piombino there is also the Castle Museum, located right in the historic center of the city, from which you can get to the famous Piazza Bovio, directly overlooking the sea.
