Marina di Pisa, also simply called “Marina” is a seaside town just 12km from Pisa. With both sandy and pebble beaches, it is a popular summer destination, loved for strolls along the promenade, a picturesque bike path, and delightful restaurants. Particularly noteworthy is the "Bocca d'Arno", the area at the mouth of the Arno river, characterized by the use of fishing nets called "Retoni". Villas dating back to the late nineteenth century are also worth a visit. From sunny beaches to green mountains, Viareggio has it all. The Alberto Gianni Maritime was founded to showcase the history of seamanship in Viareggio and in Tuscany in general. Along with relaxing on the seaside and hiking excursions through natural oases like Lake Massaciuccoli and the Antro del Corchia grottos, there are also perfect spots for shopping enthusiasts and an impressive Gallery of Modern and Contemporary art nestled in this dramatic landscape. Cinquale is another seaside spot with a defensive past. Built to defend against raids by the Sarcen pirates, a fortified tower was built in 1565. Beyond this impressive site, Cinquale is synonymous with rest and relaxation with many spas just waiting for you.
