A seaside resort overlooking the gulf of the same name, saw its first building when Leopold II decided to build foundries near Valpiana.
To reduce the costs of transporting ore from Elbe to the coast he created a large modern steel plant. Architecturally, this industrial culture can still be found within the beautiful access gate to the former iron factory and in the church of St. Leopold.
In recent years, thanks to consolidation and targeted interventions for more environmental friendly policies, Follonica won the Blue Flag Award as well as the Five Sails Award that attest to the general environmental cleanliness.
In Follonica you will have the possibility to rent soccer fields at sports clubs, to organize retreats and / or events.
