Situated on a hill overlooking the sea and the surrounding countryside, Campiglia Marittima is one of the loveliest old hill towns on the Costa degli Etruschi. Here in heart of the Val di Cornia where ancient traditions live on, remains bearing witness to the Etruscan, Roman and Medieval civilisations can be found. The Val Fucinaia furnaces and the San Silvestro Archaeological-Mineral Park (a splendid open-air museum) tell the fascinating story of how metal was worked from Etruscan times on. The Caldana Hot Springs at Venturina, already known in Etruscan and Roman times, are today a well equipped spa facility for mental and physical well being - The Costa degli Etruschi Wine Route – home of the prestigious Val di Cornia DOC wines - winds through olive groves, vineyards and Mediterranean scrub, where farms and producers of the excellent local extra-virgin olive oil and other delicious specialities can be found. History and folklore come alive during the fests and events held every year to celebrate feast days and the changing seasons.
