Day trip to the coast?

Staying in Barberino Val Delsa for a couple weeks. Would like to see the coast while there. We have a car. Any recommendations on where to go? Just looking for a place to sip a cocktail and enjoy the views. Thanks!

For views, we'd have to suggest that marvelous coastal road that heads south from Livorno. There are quite a few bars, perched high on cliffs, where you can watch the waves roll (or crash, depending upon the weather) in while sipping a Negroni.

Gratzie Artviva. Looks like about a 90 minute trip to Loverno, then down the SS1. Would you recommend making a big loop down to Cecina and back through Volterra or simply turn around and head back the way we came ( SS 439 it looks like).

We'd suggest you vary the scenery, Inghabo. You might also want to consider stopping in Cecina. It has sandy beaches and some surf (we love it). It offers marvelous views, but they're mostly horizontal.

Of course to see more would be better!
