Do you know the little cute town of Pietrasanta?
It’s a little medieval jewel 10 km from Forte dei Marmi and from Lucca, an example of fine tuscan Architecture, it has a beautiful Cathedral, a wide square with a lot of little cafés and art galleries. Everywhere small cozy boutiques, new designers places, little gourmet restaurant. in two word, it’s Instagram paradise!
Unlike many popular Tuscan towns, Pietrasanta isn’t a hill town and its historic center is a pleasant place for strolling. It’s an important center for working marble and was used as a marble source by Michelangelo. Several international artists live or work here and there often are art galleries and exhibits. The Bozzetti Museum is a very important museum of sculpture and sketches!
