Areas to visit in the surroundings of Forte dei Marmi

We list the best-known areas in the surroundings of Forte dei Marmi, in case you would like to visit them.

Pietrasanta
And its historic centre of international importance as crossroads of sculptors from every corner of the world has become a real city of art over the years. Every year, indeed, from May to September, in the central Piazza del Duomo and in the nearby Cloister of Sant'Agostino, the most important international artists exhibit their works of art. Several bars, crowded with people at cocktail hour, overlook the same square. End your visit with pleasant moments in one of the many restaurants nearby.

Apuan Alps
Every year, a large number of tourists visit our mountains, thanks to their several paths (suitable for hiking and mountain-biking). One of these paths crosses the heart of the mountain and leads to one of the most famous mountain huts: the Forte dei Marmi hut where - besides tasting the excellent local cuisine - you can enjoy a breathtaking view.

Antro del Corchia
The 'Montagna Vuota' (Empty Mountain), nestled among the spectacular sceneries of the Apuan Park, holds the secrets of millions of years of geological history. The many tunnels inside are easily accessible by the whole family, thanks to the presence of safe paths and expert guides, who will lead you throughout the excursion. All these make the Antro del Corchia unique.

Cinque Terre
In this territory, where the sea and the earth merge to create a unique and picturesque area, rich in coves and small beaches, you will have the opportunity to hike or mountain-bike surrounded by a breathtaking scenery. During the summer season, the Cinque Terre are easily reachable thanks to a ferry, that departs directly from the pier of Forte dei Marmi in the morning, coming back in the evening. These, in a few words, are the Cinque Terre, which have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1997.
