Introducing Forte dei Marmi

Forte dei Marmi rose to fame at the turn of the century as a glamorous getaway for the Italian elite – a reputation kept alive to this day. Set off from your luxury hotel and saunter along a wide seafront lined with elegant art nouveau hotels. Bask in the sun on the endless beaches, or seek out a chic restaurant and dine on Tuscan cuisine. 

Things to do

Forte dei Marmi is famed for its long, pristine beaches, which can be accessed right from the seafront. Pull up a sun lounger and relax. Or take a swim in the warm, azure waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Those in search of a more active holiday will have plenty of options in Forte dei Marmi. Hone your swing at one of the town’s golf courses, or play a game of tennis. Or try your hand at sailing or windsurfing from the surrounding beaches.

Your luxury hotel in Forte dei Marmi makes a wonderful base for exploring more of Tuscany. A short drive will take you to Lucca, a Renaissance masterpiece in miniature. Saunter through cobbled streets and explore historic palaces and towering churches. Or walk around the impressive, largely intact city walls and gaze out across the red-tiled rooftops. 

Top Tip from SLH

Dig into the history of Tuscany. Take a private tour of the nearby Cararra quarries – the source of fine Italian marble since Roman times.
