There is an extraordinary place in Tuscany, fashioned from sea and sand and stone.
Thanks to its long history, resources and the beauty of its territory that have always encouraged human settlement and attendance as a tourism destination, Rosignano boasts a tangible and intangible cultural heritage, which is rich and diversified, ranging from archaeological remains to the Macchiaioli art, from medieval castles perched on the hillsides to the garden-city of Solvay, and the Art Nouveau architecture of the villas in Castiglioncello. Museums, the theater and the many activities organized by the Municipal Administration in the field of art history, performing arts, cinema, and literature focused on Castello Pasquini contribute to enrich and diversify the cultural offer of the area.
The accommodation capacity of Rosignano Marittimo is wide and diversified, as it adapts to a territory that boasts ancient tourist traditions. This town is able to meet the different needs of those who are looking for a holiday of ‘pleasant slowness’, but also of people who would like to spend an ‘active vacation.’ From elegant hotels to cozy pensions in the seaside locations, from lively holiday farmhouses to comfortable campsites on the sea and on the hills, from B&Bs to holiday apartments, our facilities combine the beauty of our places with the most cordial reception in order to give our guests a customized holiday based on relaxation, wellness, and fun.
The variety of our territory is translated into a treasure of tastes and flavors, where tradition meets innovation thanks to the excellent raw materials our chefs use wisely. Both on the coast and in the hilly areas, traditional and gourmet restaurants develop a high-quality culinary journey cooperating with local farms and fisheries. The presence of a hotel management school allows us to enhance our accommodation capacity and gastronomic offer and to increase our operators’ professionalism. The annual festival MangiainGiro is one of the most important events taking place from late April to late May for 5 weekends. It involves all the hamlets in the municipality, highlighting the history, and the typical gastronomic traditions and products of each territory. Foodies Festival in Castiglioncello, Il Principe Ranocchio in Vada, Cacciucco senza Trucco in Rosignano Solvay, Non si frigge mica con l'acqua in Rosignano Marittimo, and Maggio Formaggio in Gabbro, Castelnuovo, and Nibbiaia, are successful events with a format that ranges from Show Cooking to food markets, thematic forums, environmental and historical itineraries whose goal is to enhance local food and products. Rosignano Marittimo is the City of Oil and has been committed to spread and enhance the local EVO oil as indispensable food for good and healthy cooking, as well as distinctive element of our recipes, from the cacciucco (fish soup seasoned with onions, garlic, pepper and white or red wine) to the fritturina di paranza (fried fish), and vegetable soups.
The variety of landscapes and the mild climate for most of the year make our area an inexhaustible resource of sports activities outdoors. Coasts, which are high and jagged in the north, and low and sandy in the south, represent the perfect destination for sea enthusiasts: diving, snorkeling, sport fishing, surfing - in all its disciplines from wave surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing – along with swimming and sailing, with regard to which our Municipality boasts national and international important events (and champions). Equipped facilities and a close organized network of pathways consisting of trails, tracks and bridle-ways allow visitors to carry out archery, paragliding, cycling, hiking, and horse-riding in the Mediterranean greenery, discovering the rich environmental and historical heritage of our region. Finally, there are many gyms and facilities for team sports (basketball, rugby, soccer) and individual ones (tennis, judo, athletics, etc.), also suitable for athletes with different abilities.
Free time and entertainment in Rosignano among typical markets, nightclubs, and entertainment venues in order to spend a few hours relaxing and having fun.
