Hang around glittery Forte dei Marmi for a second day rooted in R&R. Indulge in a beach day on the free sands along viale Italico, or, if you’re after something more secluded and comfortable, try any of the numerous, classed-up bagni (bathing establishments) along the beach. Many are equipped with elegant restaurants or casual eateries and lounges, and some with pool and Jacuzzi areas.
Spas are a solid and equally relaxing alternative if you’re visiting during cold weather: take the short three kilometer journey to Cinquale di Montignoso for a day of pure pampering at the Terme della Versilia spa and wellness center, which occasionally hosts special openings during the low season.
Round out the day with a sunset stroll along the Pontile, Forte dei Marmi’s iconic bridge and a remnant of the city’s role in the marble trade—this was the loading dock for marble transported to the city from the nearby Apuan Alps for shipment elsewhere. These days, it’s the place to see and be seen on the ritual evening “passeggiata” (stroll), and offers one of the town’s most striking views—in short, the perfect spot to take a photograph or steal a kiss with someone who makes your heart flutter.
