A car rental in Piombino, Italy is a superb way to explore the coastal regions of Tuscany along both the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Sea. Located a beautiful 2 hour ride from Florence by car, Piombino is an incredibly ancient city, having been founded by the Etruscans over 2,500 years ago. In the Middle Ages, the city was an important port of the Republic of Pisa, and still remains an important port for both industrial and tourist traffic. Travelers who find themselves in Piombino today should make it a point to explore the ancient historic center and consider a ferry ride to Elba Island, where Napoleon was imprisoned. Today visitors can enjoy miles of picturesque sandy beaches here.
Piombino's historic sights all lie within the old city center, where dozens of ancient churches, fortifications, and residences can be found. Most intriguing of the historic sights is the Chapel of St. Anne, a noteworthy Renaissance church designed by the local architect Guardi. Due to the city's many winding streets pairing your Piombino rental car with a GPS rental or hiring a private chauffeur will make finding the church easy. If you're looking to spend time on the beach, head west to the Follonica gulf, where there are several private beach clubs where one can relax and unwind on the white sand beaches of the Mediterranean.
