Sport and nature
Ours land is full of greenery and natural environments, with flora and fauna of merit, where nature lovers can discover funny trekking, go horse riding or cycling along the scenic roads that wind through the farms.
Apart from spend days of intense relax by the pool or exploring cultural destinations, our region has a particular vocation for the sport that gives pleasure to those who want to tone up even during the summer holidays.
Bicycle touring is a fun sport that will allow you to take a holiday in close contact with nature, with our territory and with its particular characteristics.
Our area (the Etruscan Coast and Val di Cecina) are particularly suitable for cycling because full of plains and gentle ups and downs, of paved roads not too beaten by the traffic that transport visitors to breathtaking panoramic views. Do not miss unsurfaced trails for mountain bikers, on which you can cycle through the woods and the Mediterranean exploring archaeological sites or have other adventures.
All these qualities, added to a temperate climate and few rain, make terrain ideal for training of professional and non professional teams throughout the year.
If you pass by us in April, May or September you may encounter teams taking part in their training. In May, 14 years from now, the Etruscan Coast Marathon organized by the MTB Club Cecina takes place and attracts many sportsmen.
Among our hills cycling experts and less experienced cyclists can tackle the slopes and plains with their own mountain bikes or racing bikes.
