Pietrasanta, Tuscany, Italy
Additional Location Information
Pietrasanta is a special small town, rich in culture and with a tourism of elite. Thanks to the high concentration of artists that decided to live here, Pietrasanta is known as the “little Athens” of the Versilia area; in fact, the town has a long tradition of expert marble workers, and the surrounding Apuan Alps remind us of this tradition. Visitors can breathe the Michelangelo-esque air in the workshops of the town, where you will likely encounter artists like Botero, Mitoraj and Gina Lollobrigida. The historic center is very elegant and visitors find art galleries, fashionable boutiques and prestigious enotecas. Located just a few kilometres away is the Marina di Pietrasanta on the Versilia coastline.
In the area you should also visit Colonnata where you can taste the local lardo delicacy and the marbel quarrels around like at Campo Cecina. Also go to Lucca with its elegant center and its still intact medieval walls; but it’s advised not to miss the villas in the surrounding countryside: such as Villa Torrigiani, Villa Mansi, Villa Reale.
Cinque Terre: Even in Italy, Cinque Terre National Park is unique. The park includes a group of five picturesque seaside villages perched high atop the rocky Mediterranean coastline. Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore, the towering hills behind them, and the breathtaking Ligurian coastline itself are all included in this special national park.
Timeless Attractions: History is alive in the villages, which are replete with ancient churches, castles, and homes that line narrow streets and squares. Roman villas, Benedictine monasteries, and Romanesque architecture bear witness to the steady march of time here.
Pedestrian Paradise: The rocky, rugged coastal cliffs keep Cinque Terre in scenic isolation. Most visitors arrive by train or boat, or even on foot, because it’s extremely difficult to reach the villages by road. That makes the park, villages and all, a pedestrian paradise linked by footpaths that traverse seaside promontories, terraced vineyards, and olive groves.
Water Park: While most visitors focus on the charming villages and breathtaking views found on terra firma, Cinque Terre is a seaside park and its bays, coves, and offshore waters are part of a protected marine area.
• Local Tastes: Like most places in Italy, Cinque Terre boasts local specialties of fine food and drink. A crisp white wine called Sciacchetrà is the prized product of local vineyards and good for washing down pesto made with locally grown basil. Freshly caught fish, garnished with local lemons, is another must-have.
How to Get There: The park is designed as a pedestrian space and the best ways to arrive are by rail or by boat. Trains arrive from La Spezia, which is serviced by all long-distance routes on the Pisa-Genoa line. Ferries embark from La Spezia, Lerici, and Porto Venere; connecting boats serve each of the five villages with the exception of Corniglia.
When to Visit: During the summer season, villages are packed to the point that some are suggesting a daily limit on the number of visitors from June to August. Off season is far more relaxed, though many restaurants and most of the few hotels may close from November until March or April.
How to Visit: Consider the purchase of a Cinque Terre tourist card, for one to seven days, which allows an unlimited number of rides along the La Spezia-Levanto rail line, access to all trails (some charge fees) and centers managed by the park, and use of available public transport, such as ecologically friendly minibuses.
