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 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,
Siena, San Gimignano and other well-known places of interest in and
close to Tuscany including Portofino and the Cinque Terre.
