Never heard of my favorite bar in the beautiful Tuscan coastal town Castiglione della Pescaia? Understandably. Even though the bar is in prime position in front of the small harbor, there's not much else to be seen than the odd Fishermen having a quick drink before unloading his boat and a few holiday-makers strolling up and down the harbor front. And that's exactly where the charm of this bar lies.

Why bother with crowded bars in Portofino or Capri if you can sit in front of the much more authentic Circolo Marinai? With the elderly couple who runs the bar service can a bit slow and the interior design hasn't been changed for ages. So what?
Sit down, have your Campari (or an alcohol free Crodino) and you'll finally understand what the concept of Dolce Vita is all about.

Where: Castiglione della Pescaia, in my opinion the most beautiful town on the Tuscan shore. 
When: The bar is normally open daily during high season (April to October). 
What else: Weather allowing have a swim or a stroll at the beach. Castiglione della Pescaia has one of Tuscany's best coastline.
