Forte dei Marmi

If you are looking for a seaside resort in Tuscany that have a lively nightlife but also a beautiful and long beach perfect to sunbathe, Forte dei Marmi is perfect place for you.

Since the post-war period, this seaside town has been a meeting place for celebrities and aristocrats who came here for the spacious beaches, the exclusive services, activities, events.
Here the disco concept was born with the famous Capannina in Forte dei Marmi which still attracts fans of all ages.

Nowadays Forte dei Marmi is the destination of a elite tourism, especially of Russian tycoons who have chosen this district as their meeting point.
However there are numerous accommodation options that allow you to find a cheaper hotel or private apartment close to the beach.

Shopping is certainly the strenghts of this location. The city center of Forte dei Marmi is a succession of luxury boutiques and trendy restaurants. It is an ideal destination for group of friends because there is always something to do, both during the day and the evening and it also ideal for couples who like to spend time in a lively place.

Lido di Camaiore


Lido di Camaiore is a quiet but at the same time lively resort, full of clubs, restaurants and close to Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio and finally with very beautiful equipped beaches.

Near the promenade there is also the cycle path suitable for people who love walking, cycling and also skating.
On the waterfront there are many restaurants, clubs and every type of water activity for adults and children.

There is a beautiful pier on the sea, called Bellavista Vittoria, where you can walk or sunbathe and in the summer season many cultural events and shows are scheduled.
Closer to the most important Tuscany touristic places, Lido di Camaiore is also a perfect starting point to visit the region.

Marina di Pietrasanta


Ideal beach holiday destination for people looking for equipped and modern bathing establishments.
Marina di Pietrasanta is one of the most beautiful naturalistic locations in the whole region.
It has more then five kilometers of beaches and a beautiful crystal sea, fragrant pine forests around the beach where you can take a refreshment in the hottest hours. Tuscany is also an ideal destination for those who love trekking. In fact, besides beautiful beaches there are also the mountains from which numerous paths start.

In the city center there are several kinds of restaurants and taverns as well as a wide range of accommodations from luxury hotels to informal b&b.

One of the symbols of this place is the Pontile di Tonfano, a structure on the sea where you can sunbathe or dive directly into the water.

Elba island


The last resort that I recommend for a beach holiday in Tuscany can only be the Island of Elba.
A vacation on an island is always something special but Elba offers a luxuriant vegetation, with gentle hills and luxuriant vineyards overlooking the sea.
Small hidden beaches with many coves and bays can only be reached by sea, for total privacy.

Elba is also rich in history. Here Napoleon Bonaparte was exiled and signs of his presence are still visible throughout the island.
In addition, the island is part of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park which protects almost 50% of the entire territory of Elba and, for this reason, diving into its waters is a natural spectacle.
The snoorkeling lovers can admire varieties of fish, corals in a really unique marine fauna.

The Island of Elba is perfect for your holidays with children or your pet, in fact all the accommodations and beaches are pet friendly.

That's all for today, these places in Tuscany are close to each other and absolutely suitable for a summer holiday. Whatever destination you choose, I'm sure you will enjoy your time (tip: every morning take a long healthy walks on the shoreline, you will stock up on healthy air, rich in iodine).
