Fall in Follonica: sport, nature and flavours

Ecco cosa non perdere durante la tua visita autunnale a Follonica.

Fall in Follonica offers new opportunities to discover this fascinating destination on the Tuscan coast: the colours of the pine woods, the cooler climate, the beauty of the landscape. Be surrounded by its enchanting history, explore its uncontaminated nature and savour the authentic flavours of local cuisine.

Discover Follonica's industrial archaeology. Explore the area of the former Ilva, a steel complex that represents one of the most important industrial archaeological sites in Tuscany. The monumental 19th-century cast iron gate is the access point to visit the disued Ilva plants, now transformed into a theatre, museum and other activities. Learn more about this important place. Don't miss the opportunity to visit MAGMA, the Maremma Museum of Cast Iron Arts, where you can learn about the history and admire artifacts related to iron processing through interactive exhibitions and engaging video projections.

Autumnal colours, nature and sports. Don't miss the autumn colours in the Montioni Park, which stretches between the provinces of Livorno and Grosseto. You can discover the typical flora and fauna of the Mediterranean scrub along paths surrounded by nature. Don't forget to visit the Torre della Pievaccia, an ancient fortified ecclesiastical complex that adds a touch of history to the landscape. Follonica also offers a wide range of outdoor activities for sports enthusiasts. Rent a bike and cycle along the paths in the park, play football or tennis in the local sports facilities or relax in the municipal swimming pool, which has three pools of different sizes.

Taste the flavours of Maremma. The MeQ in Follonica is the quality indoor market where to enjoy the seasonality of local products and experience authentic cuisine. Here you can buy fresh fish, meat, fresh pasta, and other typical products, breathing in the lively and sustainable atmosphere of this market. Also, in autumn, take advantage of wine and extra virgin olive oil tastings in the many bars and accommodation facilities in the area.

Events and activities. Follonica offers a wide range of events and activities, even in fall days. Enjoy an evening at the Alegria Locale, where to dance to the rhythm of live music, or attend a theatrical performance at one of the local theaters. For cinema lovers, do not miss the shows at Cinema Astra, where a new Dolby Surround 7 audio system provides a modern cinema experience.
