Homes for sale in Versilia



Ever heard of Forte dei Marmi? Certainly I have. This was the place that, in 1980, became the famous location for many films that went down in history. Films that showed an Italy that was changing. Today we see that you are talking about one of the most beautiful places in Versilia, Tuscany.

But Forte dei Marmi is not just entertainment, although there are many recreational activities. We are talking about an area that is rich in history. During the Roman expansion, when the Roman Empire conquered Europe, the town of: marble quarries, known today as Forte di Marmi, was crucial. An important strategic military hub. In the 1500s it became very important for the Medici family. A noble family that played an important political and economic role. Even the artist Michelangelo decided to come to Forte dei Marmi to choose some blocks for his works.


Today, we know it best for the beauty of the beach, but it is possible to get to know it in many ways. In fact, there are many women to visit, perhaps even in the evening or on a weekend.

Fun in Forte dei Marmi

In the list of main attractions in Forte dei Marmi in Versilia, there are actually stops that combine fun shopping. Some travel agencies even make sure to visit the town's liveliest areas.

These include Piazza Marconi and the weekly Forte market. We must emphasise that this is a market not suitable for all budgets. In fact, it is the only one in Italy to be called: the luxury market. Here you will absolutely not find goods that are imported. On the contrary, there are totally Italian clothing, accessories, handicrafts and even food and wine products. If we then go to bags and clothing, there are stands belonging to really expensive and famous boutiques.

In addition to this there is the antiques market that takes place every second weekend of every month. Of course in this case we are talking about a luxury market that attracts many VIPs.

Remaining on the subject of entertainment and visits, you must then pass through Piazza Garibaldi, with Via Roma, Via Mazzini and Piazza Dante. This is the historic centre of Forte dei Marmi, where there are many boutiques, shops, restaurants and famous shops, including Gucci and Prada.

In addition to entertainment, there is the beauty of some places such as the historic villas of the vittoria apuana and Roma imperiale districts. Sant'Ermete church and the Forte dei Marmi promenade and wharf. During the summer, street performers and stalls selling various products can be found both during the day and at night.


The green face of Forte dei Marmi

Forte dei Marmi in Versilia is very attractive due to its beautiful seafront, beaches and other natural areas. For nature lovers who also want to take long walks in the Tuscan Mediterranean maquis, we recommend the famous: WWF oasis Dune di Forte dei Marmi. Protected by the WWF, this area preserves an ancient part of Versilia as well as local fauna and vegetation.


Then there is the Versiliana Park, which is one of Versilia's green lungs with an area of 800,000 square metres. A forest heritage that hosts various shows and music festivals.

We conclude with the Alpi Apuane park where there are adventure trails for children and families, but also natural attractions among which we find:

- Antro del Corchia

- Wind Cave

- Candalla waterfalls

So, a country that awaits you in summer to experience both beaches and nature, but which is also an attraction in winter as it is possible, in the Alpi Apuane, to play winter sports and ski on its ski slopes.
