The sea, we just need the sea to complete our love journey in Tuscany. It doesn’t matter if it’s already winter, we know that by the sea the sun will be a bit brighter, the air a bit warmer.
We leave for Versilia, inspired by its melodious name we always connected to elegant atmospheres. Versilia actually became an elite destination by the end of XIX century, when the wealthy Tuscan families began to visit it to avoid the summer heath of the hinterland. The sand baths and the healthy sea air lifted their spirits, attracting more and more noble families, who arrived from all Northern Italy and the rest of Europe later. During XX century, Versilia transformed into what we all know: a destination chosen by public figures, the queen of summer mundane life.
We arrive at Forte dei Marmi and we take a stroll through the pine grove, studded with the majestic villas, hidden by the trees. We feel like two vips while we head towards the sea, that saw so many stars bathing in its waters. The fresh breeze of winter brings the strong perfume of maritime pines to the shore, where it blends with the unmistakable one of the sea. The Apuan Alps stands out against the background impressively. We finally understand why this is considered a paradise. Like two children, we run after one another, barefoot on the sand, we take funny pictures and then we kiss with the relaxing sound of the waves as the only perfect music background.
The famous eighteenth-century fortress and the pier built again after Second World War, symbols of the city, a walk through the streets of branded shopping in the center, an aperitif in a chic bar and a candlelight fish dinner: we spend the rest of the day falling in love more and more with Forte dei Marmi, with its refined and unique atmosphere.
Verses of Italian songs arrive from the clubs that made the history of music. While we look at each other, we feel that no other night can be more magic than this one, and our love will be eternal like the love of the movie stars who danced on this notes.
