Cecina is one of the most appreciated tourists resort of the Tuscan coast, both for the beautiful sea and sandy beaches, and for the pine forests that, while protecting the coast, give fresh air and offer ideal spaces for walks and bike tours. Founded by the ancient people of the Etruscans, in recent times Cecina pioneered its economy on tourism, becoming in the time a traditional destination for relaxing holidays, suitable for children as well. The city, especially in the summer months, enjoys a dynamic and sparkling atmosphere thanks to the presence of numerous venues, seaside resorts, water sports centers such as surfing, sailing or diving. The fact that Cecina rises between the sea and the Maremma makes it possible for restaurants and shops to taste typical dishes of both sea and land: fresh fish, Chianina meat, salami, cheeses, wines from the Bolgheri consortium and many others. For those who would like to explore the surrounding area and make a day trip this town is definitely a strategic choice: heading towards the hinterland you will find several municipalities such as Castelnuovo Val di Cecina, Pomarance, Monteverdi Marittimo and Volterra impervious. Or, following the coast, you can visit other seaside resorts with beautiful beaches such as Bibbona, San Vincenzo and Populonia with its Etruscan excavations.
