Last summer we spent an unforgettable week in Tuscany, in the little town, Castiglione della Pescaia.
It's the typical coastal, small Italian town, buzzing with life, people on scooters everywhere, terraces full of people enjoying cappuccinos, fishermen, going out to sea early in the morning, being awaited in the evening by loads of customers looking for the freshest fish and seafood.
It's location is perfect if you want to visit Rome, Pisa, Florence and Cinqueterre as it's within 2-3 hours drive from all of them.
Holiday rentals are not as expensive as in other parts of Tuscany and the town is very close to a few beautiful vineyards.
A visit to the church in the hill, in the center of town will give you some spectacular views at sunset.
Castiglione della Pescaia is known for its beaches and has become a center of European tourism.
