Forte dei Marmi is one of the most coveted and exclusive tourist destinations in Italy, a town with 500 years of history located with its beach of fine golden sand in a privileged position, nestled between the sea and the mountains in a region rich in natural beauty and artistic treasures.
Since the early twentieth century, the Forte, because of its geographical attractions and high quality of life, has become the "good retreat" par excellence of artists and writers, nobles and intellectuals, representatives of the Milan and Florence well-to-do, well-known soccer players, politicians, industrialists and international VIPs.
It is the Forte dei Marmi of Gabriele D'Annunzio and Enrico Pea, of Carlo Carrà and Henry Moore, of Thomas Mann and Luchino Visconti, of the Agnelli family and the Moratti family.
It is the Forte dei Marmi that imposes fashions, the cultured and refined Forte dei Marmi of the Versiliana and of a rich program of exhibitions and cultural events, but also the dream destination of the gilded youth of the 1960s, that of the Capannina di Franceschi where big stars of music and exclusive shopping in high-fashion boutiques performed.
From the central Fortino you can reach the end of the pier to enjoy the intense salty smell of the sea, and then turn to admire the view of the stunning peaks of the Apuan Alps.
Forte dei Marmi remains a point of reference for those who want to spend a relaxing and restful vacation, without giving up the many entertainments of the nightlife, animated year-round by upscale restaurants, discos, and trendy cafes.
