Marina di Pietrasanta

Marina di Pietrasanta is located within the municipality of Pietrasanta, in Versilia, in the province of Lucca.
This town, a seaside resort, runs for about 4km on the coast between Forte dei Marmi and Lido di Camaiore.
This area is divided into 4 fractions: Fiumetto, Tonfano, Motrone and Le Focette.

Marina di Pietrasanta is one of the most important and historical sea-resort and tourist areas, not only in Versilia but all over Italy.
Already back in the ‘30s, although counting a population of as little as 2000 souls, it could already accommodate 900 tourists, thanks to its good number of hotels, inns and rooms for rent.
At that time, Marina di Pietrasanta was scarcely urbanized. Bathing establishments only counted a few beach huts. Buildings were few and mostly on the seafront road.

As mentioned, Marina di Pietrasanta is one of the most important and popular resorts in Italy.
Especially appreciated are its large, clean and very well equipped sandy beaches and its many historical restaurants and social areas most of which directly facing the sea.
Among the most famous Discos, you may find ‘Bussola’ and ‘Twiga’, owned by Flavio Briatore.

This historical place is today theater of several cultural events, thanks to the Versilia Café where several cultural and current affair debates take place in summer.
