Pietrasanta is one of those places which is truly blessed in terms of both its location and aesthetics. Situated between the glorious Apuan Alps (home to the famed Carrara marble) and the warm waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, it is a perfect example of an Italian “noble town” with its charming buildings and breathtaking central square, the perfect spot for people watching as you sit outside one of the many bars and cafés.
Despite its compact layout and intimate village feeling, however, it has a great cosmopolitan vibe thanks to its many independent boutiques, restaurants and art galleries. In fact, it is affectionately nicknamed Little Athens because for decades it has attracted artists and sculptors from all over the world who come to learn, study and work, particularly with bronze and marble. Sitting at a café you may find yourself sitting next to renowned artists or figures from the world of music and film, many of whom have chosen Pietrasanta as their adopted home.
With the train station handily located just a five-minute stroll from the centre and safe, flat cycle lanes leading to the beach four kilometres away, the town is strategically located. And. with a host of cultural events throughout the year, Pietrasanta is a wonderful place not only to visit during summer, but to live in whatever the season.
