The seaside resorts along the coast line are full of beach establishments, good restaurants, stylish bars and clubs, fashionable and exclusive shops and many sport activities.
Tuscany holds many of artistic and historical centers such as Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca. These medieval and artistic centers are full of masterpieces by many famous Tuscan artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.

The area between Florence and Siena is famous for its Chianti wines and extra Virgin Olive Oil, The marble quarries of Carrara export pure white marble all over the world and hold breathtaking views and natural wildlife protected parks.
The hills of Tuscany are populated by scattered medieval centers all with a story to tell, Pietrasanta is one of these and is also known as little Athens.
The sport activities range from sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, fishing, tennis, horse riding, cycling, mountain biking, paragliding and an 18 hole golf course.

Pietrasanta is a small city in the north of Tuscany with Roman origins and part of a Roman wall still can be seen. It is part of the Versilia area and is located at 3 km from the coast. It holds a historical centre and central square with a Roman/Gothic Cathedral and sits at the foot of the Alpuan Alps, famous for their marble quarries.
The area, like most of Tuscany, has long enjoyed the patronage of artists. Pietrasanta grew to importance during the 15th century, mainly due to its connection with marble. Michelangelo was the first sculptor to recognize the beauty of the local stone.
The town hosts many artist studios that work marble and brass, it also hosts many art galleries and is known as the centre of modern art in Italy. Many artists and sculptors have worked and reside here.
Pietrasanta has many fashionable, excellent restaurants and bars which populate the streets around the central large square. Boutiques, shoes and leather goods stores fill the local streets and make it perfect for shopping. A bohemian town where an “aperitivo” in the bars facing the square offer a delightful, unique atmosphere.
The Marina of Pietrasanta is its seaside resort with golden sands, beach establishments, a pier, shopping centre and vast pine woods is considered one of the most beautiful beach areas in Italy. The liberty style buildings and marble clad squares with sculptures and art works together with tall palm trees and local vegetation give a fairy tale touch to the resort.

The Marble quarries of Carrara and the Alpuan Alps with their wildlife parks and retreats add to the fascination of this resort.
