Italy, Tuscany, Rosignano beach, white sand
Rosignano - beach in Italy with almost Caribbean white sand. The reason for this is soda factory, working since 1914. The only harm from the factory is that water is a little white muddy. This is unique place in Europe with perfect beach and we highly recommended to visit it. Also you can quickly reach (by the regionale trains) beautiful Tuscan towns of Pisa, Lucca and Florence. / read more » /

As for me Tuscany is not good for beaches, as it is overcrowded and overpriced. You'd better think about south Italy - less crowded, warm water cheap.

As for Tuscany, I would prefer Rosignano. But it has no sunbeds rental.


[2017-08-07] Adelaida

Please, advise a beach in Tuscany. I thought about Viareggio, but after reading reviews, I understand that I want something less touristic. Rosignano - white sand? Castiglione della Pescaia - good reviews, but it seems that there's no good beach. Any ideas?


[2015-03-05] Stella

Monteriggione - with its classical towers on a hill.

+ Montepulciano, Pienza, San Gimignano!


[2015-03-05] Zanoza

Arezzo is another good town in Tuscany.

Val d'Orcia - is a famous valley with classical Tuscanian landscapes!


[2015-03-05] polizei

Florence, Lukka, Siena, Pisa are the best towns in Tuscany
