The village, situated on top of a hill and surrounded by the sea, has a fascination all its own. Inside medieval walls built to defend against pirate attacks, and a fortress which dates to the beginning of the XV century, are paved streets, little shops and a private museum of Etruscan and Roman artefacts found in the surrounding area and the sea.
baratti e populonia
A panoramic road offering wonderful views connects Populonia with the Gulf of Baratti where there are numerous reminders of Etruscan times. The 80 hectare archaeological park, which can be visited along organised routes, combines history and archaeology in a beautiful, unspoilt natural setting. The San Cerbone monumental necropolis, the only one built near the sea, the remains of metalworking sites, the Cave necropolis and ancient stone quarries are of great interest.
