"MY HOME TOWN" Rosignano Solvay by Azhut

Rosignano Solvay Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 41 photos

A NICE TOWN CLOSE TO THE SEA

These are the "famous" White beaches. In summer they are full of tourists!


A view of my home town took from the sea. You can see the white beaches and the factory called "Solvay" that gave its name to the town where I live.

An advice all those meaning to go to the white beaches might want to heed is that of being very careful of where they mean to park, particularly during the summer months, on Sundays, when the beach becomes the sun tanning destination young people from the provinces around it prefer (Livorno, Florence, Prato and Pisa). Because apart from the payment parking, which is all full after a very short while, any other space to park on the provincial road that goes from Vada to Rosignano, is full of permanent parking restrictions, so watch out for the signs, or after a nice tan you'll find an ugly surprise!


After the drainage of the land in 1914, in Rosignano people built a factory which sonn became the most important industrial centre. Here sodium, hydroxide, sodium bicarbonate and carbonate were produced. Since Rosignano is a quite modern city, it has not a particular historical importance.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful beaches and sea
