Superb cuisine, fabulous scenery, the finest wines, elegance and style, medieval cities, magnificent architecture and birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Puccini and Verdi – the very essence of Italy is here in Tuscany to be savoured and enjoyed. You’ll be staying in the very Italian coastal resort of Marina di Pietrasanta (just half an hour from Pisa and 5 miles from Viareggio), with its long sandy beach and backdrop of impressive mountains. The resort itself has a genuine Italian feel to it – the main street, which runs parallel to the beach, is full of shops, restaurants, cafes, pizzerias and boutiques and each Saturday there’s a lively open air market in the main square. It’s a delightful resort and the perfect base from which to explore Pisa, Lucca, Florence and other well-known places of interest in Tuscany.
Hotel Apuana ★★★
The family-run Apuana offers guests comfortable accommodation, friendly service and is attractively laid out alongside a swimming pool
and a spacious sunbathing area with sunbeds and parasols.
It’s just 400m from the seafront and Marina di Pietrasanta’s long sandy beach and is a short stroll from the main square and all the resort’s amenities. All the hotel’s air-conditioned bedrooms, varying in shape and size, have private sh/wc (with hairdryer), satellite TV, direct dial telephone and safe. There’s a cosy bar, a small lounge area, a covered patio terrace and wifi availability.
Meals are taken in the restaurant (buffet breakfast, waiter service at dinner) and Nora and Andrea, the owners, ensure that there’s a good mix of Italian and international dishes.
