Follonica's heart beats again at the MAGMA. Housed in the restored St Ferdinand Furnace, the city's most historic building, the museum is a treasure trove of wonder, where age-old walls stand side-by-side modern multimedia technology. A virtual journey of discovery across time and space, back to the cradle of the Italian iron industry, against an extraordinary backdrop of industrial archaeology.
Impressive: a multimedial and edgy set-up to tell the history of Follonica and its cast iron foundries through the eyes of the people who lived and worked here for the last two centuries and beyond. I was very moved, it was really like meeting all those people, or like going back to those times. Kids of all ages will love all the special light effects: for this reason, it is better to visit it after the sunset or on a clouded day.

Try to avoid peak season and Week ends in June/September and you'll enjoy a little paradise. Please consider that this is not a location with plenty of facilities but a pretty natural spot with the plus of a truck-restaurant during Summer Season.
Try to go there when the place is empty.
The beach is perfectly exposed to the South and therefore full of Sun all across the day.
There is a fee for leaving the car parked the whole day as the parking lot is private.
Please note that a nice walking path is linking the beach with Puntone (Marina di Scarlino)

Small pebbled cove. Lovely. It can be reached through a small and steep pathway amongst the underwood. I found the steps a real challenge. No bars. No parking. No one around in fact. Just two stark-naked chaps. It must be amazing during the spring. Mind your own stool or other Seating.

Firstly, it is important to mention that there are not many sandy Beaches on Isola Di Giglio. It’s a piece of rock sticking out of the sea. This small beach is a gem on the island. It is accessible from the main port by boat, kayak etc. However, I have also seen people walking to the beach so there must be an access from the land as well. Definitely, worth a visit if you are on the island.

Not too impressed by this place, went with my son for a few hours one afternoon during our holiday in Tuscany and had to endure a lot of queuing with plenty of loud Italian teenagers. The wave machine only worked sporadically as well. Stick to the beach, cheaper and more fun.

The wetland of the Padule di Scarlino is a mix of salt water and fresh water, a relict of what was once a typical landscape of the Maremma. Today this type of landscape has almost disappeared due to the reclamation of the marshland.
Per gli amanti della natura è sicuramente un posto da visitare, uno dei tanti "padule" rimasti in Maremma; Molto consigliato anche agli amanti della fotografia naturale, è infatti possibile fotografare in questa zona molti uccelli che vengono a nidificare o nutrirsi nel padule

I have stumbled on this gate by pure chance, missing a turn on my way to our host. It surprised me by its size and apparent lack of purpose: a huge, quite elaborate gate on a very anonymous street, with nothing special in the back. There is no sign to explain you what it is, only some boards written only in Italian about some very grim and unimpressive buildings in the area behind the gate. I almost forgot about it, until I have been asked by tripadvisor.com if I can review it. Only then I realized it was something of some importance and checked on internet. This is how I found about the history of Follonica and the significance of the gate. Too bad that the city of Follonica does not make this accessible at least for the people that, completely innocent, happen to see the gate by chance!
