One of Italy’s first fashionable seaside resorts, with one of the Mediterranean’s clearest blue seas lapping against its shores, the Tuscan coastline offers an extraordinary variety of environmental conditions, particularly insofar as concerns the forms of the coastline.
Along the coast of Tuscany one can find the resort town of Forte dei Marmi with its prime shopping areas and restaurants, immense pine-woods, the peaceful mouths of Apuane, and the colours and fragrances of the Mediterranean brush. These unique landscapes have been one of the attractions of the coast since the end of the 19th century, when the first holidaymakers discovered the healthy properties of sea-bathing and walks in the pine-woods.
Forte dei Marmi is a sea town in the Lucca province, in northern part of Tuscany. It is the birthplace of the Queen of the Belgians. Forte dei Marmi is one of Italy’s first fashionable seaside resorts: many famous faces have been drawn to the area, enticed by the far reaching golden sands and the marble mountain backdrop.
Not to mention the top-notch restaurants and exclusive boutiques. Stroll through the streets leading off from the main square and you’ll soon discover the various shops and cafes on offer. Leave it later still and you’ll get a chance to experience the lively nightlife too, as the beach bars spring to life.
