Visitors approach Bolgheri from the end of the famous Viale dei Cipressi, mentioned by the poet Carducci in his "Before San Guido" ("The tall straight cypresses in double row / Troop from San Guido down to Bolgheri"). The town greets guests within the city walls with their guard towers. You can lose yourself in characteristic vistas while walking along the narrow lanes, where you'll find ancient buildings, artisan workshops, wine bars and typical taverns. Bolgheri's wines have a global reputation and draw tourists from all parts of the world. So don't miss this opportunity to visit this splendid medieval town!
Set on a hill at the foot of the Castello Della Gherardesca, Castagneto Carducci can best be taken in by admiring the hundreds of sun-soaked windows that look out onto the sea. The Castle, whose tower still today cheerfully looks over the town from the top of the hill, once defended a fief of endless wooded and coastal lands. It was built around the year 1000 and represented the center of local economic power. Today the Castle still belongs to the Della Gherardesca family. Giosuè Carducci, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1906, grew up in Castegneto.
Canado Club is located near the town of Donoratico. While its modern buildings give it a young look, it's a town of ancient traditions, as it's always been linked to the Della Gherardesca name: the Counts of Donoratico are indeed one of the oldest noble houses in Europe; the family includes, among others, the famous Conte Ugolino, mentioned by the Great Poet of the Divine Comedy.
The Bolgheri Festival began as an initiative of a group of people based in Tuscany who for years have been promoting artistic events and ideas with attention, care and professionalism. Last year, this dedicated team developed and realized the latest edition of the Festival, which was greeted with great acclaim and gained notice that went far beyond expectations. Past and future guests include Ermal Meta, Francesco Gabbani, Afterhours and Max Gazzè
Baratti and Populonia
The park and museum of Baratti and Populonia exhibit important artifacts of the ancient civilization of the Etruscans, long extinct. The area is also famous for its crystalline waters and its seabeds, an ideal place for divers.
This modern seaside town is about 5 km south of Club Canado. It's known for its modern port and its fashionable shopping center.
Val di Cecina
Val di Cecina is characterized by its mostly flat lands that run up to the Tyrrhenian Sea and by the picturesque hills from which to admire it. Val di Cecina contains modern towns like Cecina as well as the older villages of Bibbona, Casale Marittimo, Guardistallo and Montescudaio. It offers the possibility of pleasant bike rides as well as more demanding hiking excursions in the Macchia della Magona.
Val di Cornia
In the Val di Cornia, the plain gives way to panoramic shrub-covered mountains typical of the Mediterranean: here visitors will find the "stone villages" of Suvereto and Campiglia Marittima, where the fortress of Rocca di San Silvestro dominates the valley below. This is where the Maremma begins...
The "Wine and Oil Way" of the Etruscan Coast crosses both valleys. Here visitors have the opportunity to admire a number of landscapes and to sample the tastes of this land.
If you're passionate about adventures on the sea, you might decide to take a tour of our islands. The waters of the Tuscan Archipelago make up Europe's largest marine park.

From Canado Club you already get a glimpse of its majestic profile: it's almost like being able to reach out and touch it. From our beach you can also admire the contours of the islands of Gorgona and Capraia.
A 45-minute car ride from Canado Club will take you to Volterra, a city with over three thousand years of history that has witnessed all the eras of Italy's past.
