Hotel Castagneto Carducci

Perched on top of a hill, dominating the surrounding countryside and the sea, this charming medieval village developed around the Castle of Della Gherardesca nobles, built around the year 1000.

The village has cobbled streets, natural terraces overlooking the sea and the countryside, squares, ancient craft shops, typical restaurants.

There are important historical sites, example of which are the Praetorian Palace, the City Hall and the churches of San Lorenzo and SS. Crucifix (for the wooden crucifix of the XV century in the church).

The district, which was originally called Castagneto Marittimo, has changed its name in the beginning of the twentieth century, in honor of the great poet Giosuè Carducci, who spent here most of his life. The house where he lived is now a museum of his life and poetry.
