    Versilia, Including Forte dei Marmi



    The Versilia coast of the province of Lucca is a very popular resort destination in Italy. From the very "Italian" sun and sand vacation of the "bagni" , to biking, boating, fishing, horseback riding, mountain climbing, and the marble quarries of Carrara, to upscale dining and shopping, to clubs, to popular music concerts, opera at Puccini's near by Torre del Lago, and art exhibits, it offers something for everyone. It is a much more cultivated and less vulgar version of the Hamptons, in my opinion, if I were to make a comparison with an area in the U.S.
    Here is a video about it:


    Forte dei Marmi is one town in the Versilia, and a popular and long time destination of Italy's haute bourgeoisie.
    This is a nice short video about it:

    This is an example of one of the nice, very traditional Italian "hotels" in Forte:

    Just to give you an idea of the entertainment offerings, this is a list of the eventi of the past summer:

    There are much more reasonable choices in the Versilia, but if I hit the Lotto, I'm staying here!

    EDIT: I forgot the most important video.:) In the list of eventi is the Mercato or Medieval fair held in my mother's area (Filetto, Bagnone).
