A stay in a 4 star hotel in Forte dei Marmi near Viareggio is the perfect occasion for discovering one of Tuscany’s most famous seaside resorts and its wonderful surroundings.
Forte dei Marmi’s name comes from the 18th century fort (a twenty minute walk from Hotel Logos) which is now home to the Museo della Satira, and was originally built to defend the long 300 meter pier used for shipping marble. It was commissioned by Michelangelo for shipping enormous blocks of the extremely white Carrara marble to Rome, where they would become the most beautiful sculptures of all time.
The pier has become one of the most popular walks in Forte dei Marmi and the entire Tuscan Riviera, where it is possible to enjoy the scenery of Versilia’s coastline, flanked by the Apuan Alps. The historical center is a kaleidoscope of shops, boutiques and elegant watering holes, which make Forte dei Marmi one of the spots on the Tuscan Coast most frequently chosen by VIP’s and famous entertainment and cultural figures.
