We found this place as we were passing through And the whole town come down to the Piazza late in the afternoon to watch the sun set. There's a little pizza restaurant and there was an art exhibit on display whilst we were there. Public toilets are a struggle to find but the view is sensational, especially at and just... More

A great piazza which extends into the sea with views of Elba Island and the backdrop of the town, very romantic.

Certainly an unique balcony with a view (on a windy day) to almost all isles of the Tuscan archipelago, do not miss if you are in the neighborhood and have spare time. Must trade off for lack of time? Then you'd rather go to the close enough Baratti promontory and Populonia castle, and won't miss any view experiences. Unfortunately Bovio's... More

I spent 3 days in Piombino with my 14 yr old daughter. We were here in the evening and strolled with the locals. Did not feel touristy at all, groups of kids playing or eating gelato, friends chatting and well behaved dogs. We loved it. Then headed to Gattarossa Art Gallery Kafe at Piazza G Verdi 7.

Piazza Bovio is really unique. Try to go there in a windy (especially if the libeccio is blowing) day and you will never forget it.

Piazza Bovio is the place to be after a walk in Piombino. You have a great view over the sea to Elba but without clouds you can even see Corsica. It is a nice place to stay a moment.

The view from this terrace is astonishing. You can see the island of Elba and two smaller islands. The place is very clean, and it's relaxing to just be there.

From this piazza, we can see ferry who took passengers to Elba Island. We also can see Elba Island closer than other town. We are amazed by its very clean beach (or sea). We also enjoy hearing the sound of birds. Quite nice.
