Lovely little town with beautiful views of the sea. On a clear day, you can see the island of Elba. Nice little cafes in town with plenty of locals.

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...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....More
