Located just south of Livorno lies the Tuscan seaport of Piombino, where lovely beaches and a laid-back style mix with a history that goes back to almost 700 BC. Walk through the gate of St. Antonino, which dates back to 1200 and is the oldest monument of Piombino, then make your way to Corso Vittorio Emanuele for Italian restaurants, trattorias, and taverns. For panoramic views of the city and islands like Montecristo and Corisca, head to Piazza Bovio, where you can also find a castle opposite it as well as a fortress built by the Medici family in the 1500s. And if you want to do a little island hopping yourself (or walk along the same streets as the exiled Napoleon did 200 years ago), the city’s marina links Piombino to Elba Island with up to 30 ferry crossings each day.
