Forte Dei Marmi

Forte Dei Marmi

At the foot of the Apuan Alps, lies Tuscany’s most famous beach town. Its stellar visitors go back to Thomas Mann, Henry Moore, and Visconti. Its villas and hotels are immersed in palms and pines; its current visitors are mostly immersed in watching each other, shopping at ultra boutiques, and drinking expensive wine. If you want the pampered Mediterranean experience with cabanas, umbrellas, and lounge chairs this is for you. Don’t forget your sunglasses or you’ll go blind from the sparkling of gold and diamonds dangling from the Russian necks and limbs.
