Pontile Medaglie d'Oro

Reviewed By BAF_52 - London, United Kingdom

By day you get a view of the coast and the Mountains behind: by night you can enjoy a cooling breeze and the lights of coast and Mountains as well as the occasional entertainment of a fisherman actually catching a fish.
I won't pretend that this is an earth shattering cultural experience but it is a very pleasant thing to do as you are strolling around town.

Piazza Duomo

Reviewed By Bart C - Foster City, California

We loved little Pietrasanta, and the center of the village is the Piazza Duomo. Lovely structures from a variety of ages. Not crowded. Surrounded by good restaurants, shopping streets, walks, and even a castle above. Short walk from the train station, for those on a quick stop tour. While it would be hard to classify any of the Tuscan/Ligurian coastal towns as not touristy, this one has more of a local feel than most. It's also an art town and the Piazza had some lovely sculpture on view. Great place to sit, paint, relax.

Walked along the beach and sat in here for a quick bite to eat, very reasonable and quick service. The drinks were sensibly priced also, you will not go wrong in here and lots of Italians in there also ;)

Sant'Anna di Stazzema

Reviewed By Chester_UKCitykid - Chester, UK

Stumbled upon the story of Sant'anna di Stazzema whilst on holiday in Northern Tuscany. It's a tiny village,high in the Mountains at the edge of the Alpi Apuane just 20-30 minutes away from the Tuscan coastal resorts of Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi and a little bit further north of Lucca. On 12 August 1944 German troop trying to prevent the Allies advance through Italy and trying to hamper local partisan activity rounded up and massacred 560 inhabitants (mainly women, children and the elderly) from Sant'Anna and nearby hamlets. The story is told in a series of panels in the village, in the village church, the Museum of the Resistance (at the time of the massacre the village school), and most poignantly the Via Crucis which leads up to a monument bearing the names of all the victims, underneath which is an ossuary containg the remains which were found in mass graves. The mounment is high up above the village, presenting stunning views of the surrounding Mountains and the nearby coastline. There are numerous waymarked walking routes a number of which follow the routes the soldiers took to attack the villages, also with signposts telling the stories of the families who lived in the hamlets at the time.
It is so peaceful and beautiful now it is hard to imagine that such events could take place here. What is also surprising is that it is not really signposted or indicated in local tourist centres or guides, perhaps to ensure that an air of peacefulness allowing for respectful reflection is maintained. Really moving, but to repeat, a stunning location. Really worth making a detour to visit of you are in the area, but be warned you will need a car capable of manoeuvring up the twisty mountain roads.

Duomo di Pietrasanta

http://duomodipietrasanta.org/http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duomo_di_Pietrasanta

Reviewed By Bryan H - Portland, Oregon

Part of the amazing piazza, but not the oldest building here, either. A local mentioned to us that the coat of arms on the Duomo (the six balls arranged in a pyramid like structure) indicates the Medici family (that had marble and other trading interests in the area) was involved in the funding of the Church. Also, she pointed the "Pope's hat" on the front -- an indication or reference of the popes that the Medici family provided to the Vatican. I have no idea if any of this is true, but found it interesting. When we went the church was opened, and there was a sign indicating that during service, people should keep "touristic activities" (such as taking photographs, I assume) to an absolute minimum. When you're in the square, it is easy to check out!

Forte dei Marmi

Reviewed By Francesco c

After 2 weeks i am thinking where is the beautiness of this city. Very blasones, researched by lot of rich people, but simply a city with expensive shops, expensive beach, expensive restaurants...
Some not small problem with all the bikes along the street and the bikes lane, they are the king of the lanes, even on the pedestrian lane they are running with the bikes, and nobody from the local police are checking.
The sea is not the pearl of Italy, just long beach and enjoyable sunset.
For sure this will be the first and the last time we'll come here.

Sketches Museum Pierluigi Gherardi

Reviewed By trufflecat - Boston, MA

Lots of them, from abstract modern to realistic portraits, these are all models of larger sculptures. Somehow having them all together in a few connecting rooms, all of an approachable size, almost all pure white, makes the sculptures come to life more than they would in full size and spaced apart in a sculpture garden. It's hard to explain why these "bozzetti", if that's how you spell it, are so interesting, but they are. When we visited, there was also an exhibition mostly around the main square of the town, called Lapidarium, of a large collection of gigantic stone and metallic sculptures of horses where part of the body was just bones. Some of the sculptures are horses heads only, displayed suspended inside the darkened church...a bit eerie. All fascinating.

I come here every year and Bagno Angelo never fails to impress. Kind staff and in a great central location there's nothing not to like! Walking distance to the pier and a great restaurant/bar.

Bagno Nettuno Alba

Reviewed By 1594OliverRR - Lexington, Massachusetts

...because there is various interesting things there! The fee is not that high-just 50 euros per person. Wow, how many interesting things are there! I'll tell you all. First of all, a wonderful family was owning Bagno Nettuno Alba. Next, you can swim in a pedal boat and look for jellyfish. If you dive or swim from the shore 4-5 minutes, be careful! Those jellyfish may sting! There is also a restaurant. It opens in the morning (I don't know what time). Pizza is available until 14:30 (2:30 P.M) and I think that the restaurant closes at 19:00 (7:00 P.M). There is a lot of space in Nettuno Alba. There is a pool with seawater,too. You have to wear special hats to be in there. You get them when you register into Nettuno Alba. There is also a ping-pong table, a soccer table and another game called Mini Ball driver. Good luck in Bagno Nettuno Alba!
