Forte dei Marmi is known for its sandy beaches - some of the best in Italy! Recline and dine at one of the beach clubs, celebrated for their freshly caught fish and local produce, stroll around the local market, bike around town and take in striking views of the Apuan Alps.
Foodies will be delighted by Forte's vibrant shoreside dining scene that springs to life by night. Be sure to sample the local speciality, Tordelli, fresh-filled pasta seasoned with rich Versilian sauce.
In Forte dei Marmi, the past and present unite in symphony. It's a site that has inspired numerous artists and poets thanks to its natural beauty and legacy as a centre for marble. Forte was a fishing village that came to life thanks to Michelangelo's penchant for the marble that he discovered in the nearby Medici quarry.
Forte is close to Carrara, which is known for some of the best marble in the world. Take a road trip and explore the marble quarries to discover this elegant, historic material. A visit to the neighbouring Pietrasanta is also worthwhile. The village is a cultural hub brimming with galleries and authentic eateries.
