Page - Free time San Vincenzo
San Vincenzo offers together with its natural beauties the comforts of a pleasant and friendly place. It is the ideal destination of international tourism, where it is possible to spend relaxing and quiet holidays. It was already populated in ancient time, and later settled by Etruscans and Romans. Today San Vincenzo is a modern and lively town, full of sports facilities and accommodations and provided with an equipped harbour.
San Vincenzo is world-famous for the excellent wines of the region and for its restaurants, which offer a typical local cuisine.
San Vincenzo is the ideal starting point for interesting visits and excursions on the Etruscan Coast, because it is situated near the park of Rimigliano, a rich and conservation area, some medieval villages, the Etruscan ruins of Baratti and Campiglia and the thermal baths of Venturina. San Vincenzo beaches are washed by a clear sea and surrounded by a thick pinewood and a lush maquis. The beautiful golden sandy beach stretches for many kilometres and has bathing areas and “Blue Points”, where assistance is available.
On the coast there is the 14th century Tower of San Vincenzo, which the town was named after. Together with other fortifications and look-out towers, it was once used to defend the coast from pirate attacks. With its clear air and sunlight, it is a great place for many water sports. The fully-equipped marina of San Vincenzo was an important commercial port and today has hundreds of docks.
