It's summer so let's start with the Versilia and more specifically with Pietrasanta!

Usually those who think to Versilia the first image that comes to mind is the sea with its promenade rich in elegant establishments equipped to the nines and its nightlife, but Pietrasanta is a village full of charm that deserves to be visited.

Pietrasanta, an ancient Center of processing and marketing for the marble coming from the quarries of the Alpi Apuane, today is an important landmark art and wine in Tuscany.

Just arrived we recommend that you do the walk and get lost in the narrow streets of the old town, which will lead you easily in piazza del Duomo, to admire the beautiful Collegiata di San Martino in Roman style.

Also in the square is the Chiesa di San't Agostino, a former Church, very impressive, where inside each month is an exhibition of art. Currently are works of the Spanish artist Manolo Valdes.

Pietrasanta, as an important point of reference in the panorama of contemporary Italian artcistico, has numerous art galleries dotted around the city; worth a visit the Parker Gallery which houses works of great artists like Fabio Viale, Jockeys, Pignatelli and Babes.

Fun stop is Valdicastello, to pay tribute to one of the most famous Italian poets, Giosuè Carducci, visiting its historic residence (by reservation only).

Pietrasanta occurs in an atmosphere always lively and bubbly that knows how to keep the link with the local culinary tradition and craft, opening themselves to stimuli of an increasingly international.

Among the most typical products of the area include lardo di Colonnata, protagonist of the processes that tell a story of peasant tables and meals with ingredients today. In Versilia there is a strong connection between the cuisine of the land and the sea which offers tasty and rich in tradition.

If you stop to eat at one of the eateries, choose a nice taglere attempt to cured meats to start, you will be satisfied!

Summer in fact also means al fresco aperitifs with friends and dinners full of good food and lots of laughter and at Pietrasanta there are many cafes and restaurants that deserve a break, such as:

  • Coffee "il Duomo" in the town's main square where to enjoy a good cup of coffee. Rich and especially also the selection of bitters and liqueurs;
  • The Enoteca Marcucci, where it is common to meet vip while enjoying fine wines;
  • "Filippo Mud", excellent for its experimental cocktail list and for its creative cuisine and gourmet;
  • "Filippo brigata" (same ownership of Filippo "Mud") offers a more "rustic" with tasty dishes that highlight the most excellent raw materials. Don't miss the ravioli with meat sauce or stuffed mussels. Finally be tempted by delicious peach cake with vanilla ice cream.

Pietrasanta in short, always a good excuse to come back to visit Versilia!
