Forte dei Marmi Hotels

Reclined along northern Tuscany’s beach gilded coast and overlooked by the dramatic Apuan Alps, Forte dei Marmi has long been a summer holiday haven. Favoured by Italian high society from the late 18th century onwards, it’s still a hit with the well-heeled today, thanks to its luxurious old villas, upscale amenities, and healthy pine–scented sea air. Whilst the low-key town is mostly about beach-based R&R, there’s plenty to do too – from bustling markets and cultural events, to laid back leisure activities.

Things to see

For seekers of sun, sea, and sand, it doesn’t get a whole lot better in Tuscany than Forte dei Marmi Beach. Known for its fine golden sand, and clean and calm warm water, it sits just a stone’s throw from many of the resort’s amenities. Jutting out into the sea you’ll see the town’s historic pier. Dating back to the ancient times, it was originally used to load ships with bulky blocks of marble quarried from the nearby mountains. The town’s name translates to “Fort of the Marbles”, and Forte dei Marmi Fortress is the reason why. Situated in the main square, the stout structure was built in 1788 to defend the coast, but by the 20th century was used to store marble prior to shipping. For aficionados of highbrow culture, a trip to Torre del Lago’s open air theatre is a must. Moments from Giacomo Puccini’s former villa, it hosts live performances of his operas, under the twinkling stars.

Hotels in Forte dei Marmi

As you’d probably expect luxury lodgings abound, from sprawling historical villas set within tranquil grounds, to sleek 5-star beach resorts oozing with contemporary glamour. Many of them feature on-site restaurants and bar lounges, pools with poolside bars, and indulgent spa facilities too. Whilst many hotels in Forte dei Marmi err on the side of pricey, there’s enough to comfortably accommodate those with more modest budgets as well. Many come as large family-friendly establishments, providing all the necessary amenities such as on-site eateries and swimming pools, as well as WiFi, cable television, and private balconies in-room.

Where to stay

Conveniently, the majority of hotels in Forte dei Marmi sit adjacent to the beach, or just a stone’s throw away from it. Opting for one of these will put the resort’s enviable slice of sea and sand just moments away, and if you stay close to the town centre, many of the best amenities too. Forte dei Marmi’s focal point is Piazza Marconi, which hosts the town’s Wednesday and Sunday market. A bargain hunter’s mecca, its colourful stalls overflow with clothes, accessories, and traditional handmade treasures. For more exclusive tastes, the town centre offers no shortage of luxury label boutiques either, as well as plenty of restaurants and cafés too.

How to get to Forte dei Marmi

Jet setters can touch down at Pisa International Airport, which sits around 44 kilometres from town. It’s a particularly well-connected hub for European travellers, with year-round links to many major cities including Amsterdam, London, Paris, and Rome, and additional seasonal services too. When you’ve arrived a taxi can whisk you to your accommodation in around half an hour, whilst some hotels in Forte dei Marmi provide the convenience of an airport pick-up service, with prior arrangement.
