Days Out


Aqua Village, Cecina

Or if you are looking for thrills and spills then Aqua Village in Cecina itself has lots of toe-curling slides, such as the Kamikaze and the Twister. The park also has lazy rivers and waterfalls and play areas for smaller children.


Parco Preistorico

Parco Preistorico has lots of amazing finds. It has loads of fossils and reproductions of prehistoric animals including dinosaurs and mammoths.



You are close to the Etruscan coast here which has amazing coves to explore and fragrant pine forests. You will find the town of Volterra here which makes for a memorable day trip: it has lots of historical and archaeological places of interest like the acropolis 552 metres above sea level where you can get stunning panoramic views.
