Apart from the fantastic view from the top of the tower this area is worth a visit if you have an interest in the history of the Etruscan people that first inhabited this area a couple of thousand years ago. There is a small museum...More

Very nice place to go with an amazing view. The castello is located in a small village with very nice handcraft shops. It really worth for a morning or afternoon.

Located in the small village (really super small) of Populonia this castle was not open when we visited but it is very beautiful to walk around there and enjoy the stunning sights of the Mediterranean sea and picturesque character of Populonia.

One of the most beautiful and breathtaking places that I have ever seen. There are some walks through the mountains that bring you to nice hidden beaches

Tremendous views from the tower. A pleasant short trip from San Vincenzo along a beautiful bay. Parking by the hour but cheap enough. Worth the detour if on the way to Piombino.

We stopped at the Castello di Populonia while spending the day driving the Tuscany Coast, the Castle itself is not that big but the sceneries are just absolutely gorgeous. The Castle has the towers patios and village around it is worth to spend some time...More

If you are at Baratti beach (or just passing that way) you should definitely head up towards the little village, castello and tower. It is pretty enough in itself but the main reason to go is the stunning views to be had across the Golfo...More
