The town is so small that it can be covered by foot, which is the desired mode of transport considering the sleepy nature.
Steep hills encompass the rocky beaches, ancient castles populate the centre and high quality restaurants serve enticing sea food – Piombino is the quintessential relaxing holiday destination. The appeal of the historical centre lies in its size; the entirety of it can be covered easily by foot and the quaint streets are decorated in colourful buildings and rustic architectural designs. The castle is possibly the standout attraction of the town, supplying unique aesthetics due to the previous employment as a prison.
To continue the cultural and historical education, the Museum of the Castle and the City provides a fascinating insight into the history of Piombino and is generally fairly affordable. For anyone who prefers sun and sea over museums and castles, there are a few beaches that are perfect for whiling away a few hours under the Mediterranean sun. The port is also ideal for a relaxing afternoon, with cafes offering postcard picture views of the harbour.
