Pietrasanta is a Medieval town near Lucca and Pisa, in Tuscany. Pietrasanta has been the marble capital since the times of Michelangelo (XV century), and today the town has a lot of art galleries, marble studios and bronze foundries, as well as Italian fashion shops, luxury beaches and wonderful mountains (Apuan Alps).
In the house where Michelangelo spent some months of his life, looking for the marble block of his masterpiece "Pietà" (today in the Vatican museum, in Rome), tourists can drink an espresso coffee, in front of the "Piazza del Duomo" (Cathedral square) reaches of the best Palazzos of the Tuscan coast.
A lot of restaurants from the Versilia area have moved to Pietrasanta in the last 10 years, as the town has become the centre of the high-quality tourism. At Marina di Pietrasanta you can experience beaches clubs, swimming pools, golf clubs, discos, a wonderful pine forest (La Versialiana), a summertime festival (it houses the most important Italian shows). You could be interested in shopping at the pedestrian street of Pietrasanta or at the street market in Forte dei Marmi on Wednesday morning: they are among the best street markets in Tuscany as far as shoes and clothing are concerned.
Pietrasanta is the ideal location for day trips to Pisa (30 km, 20 minutes by train), Florence (90 km, 90 minutes by train), Lucca (40 km, one hour by bus), 5 Terre (50 km, one hour by train), Carrara (20 km, 30 minutes by train), Camaiore (15 km, 30 minutes by bus), Viareggio (20 km, 12 minutes by train). There is a safe bike path from Pietrasanta downtown to Marina di Pietrasanta (seaside), and from there to Forte dei Marmi (North) and Lido di Camaiore-Viareggio (South).
Pietrasanta has a lot of historical monuments, such as "Rocca di Sala" (XIV century), San Martino's Cathedral (XIV), Sant'Agostino's church (XIV century), Tower of the Hours (XVI), Rocchetta Arrighina (XIV century), Fonte del Marzocco (XVI century), Column of Liberty (XVI century) and the monument to Leopoldo II (XIX century), as well as many modern art works, thanks to a long list of international artists that live or work there, such as Yan Kasuda, Fernando Botero, Michel Folon, Adam, Bloc, Cascella, Igor Mitoraj, G. Pomodoro and Gina Lollobrigida (the Italian Hollywood star).
Pietrasanta owes its name to its founder, Guiscardo Pietrasanta, who built it by orders of the Republic of Lucca about in the middle of the XIII century. Between 1300 and 1500 Pietrasanta was under the dominance of several local Lords: it was subjected to Pisa (1312), Lucca (1314), Firenze (1341), Milan (1344), Genova (1430), and so on changed several governments until 1513 when Pietrasanta came under the dominance of Firenze. In 1841 Leopoldo II of Habsburg-Lorraine, the Grand Duke of Tuscany, gave to Pietrasanta the title of Noble City, thanks to its historic sites, its Family Palazzos and wealthy people.
