My fav spots in Tuscany (seaside) FORTE DEI MARMI

FORTE DEI MARMI  is the VIP trendy place in Tuscany. I went there few times because a part of my family (mother side) live close by (in Lucca and Pisa).

So it is a great pleasure for me to talk about this place I know pretty well...

Where to sleep in FORTE DEI MARMI :

There is only place if you want to sleep with the truly Glam & chic style, the 5 star (One michelin hat restaurant)  HOTEL BYRON.

There are places that have a special charm all their own, places made up of intangible atmospheres and evocative powers, of memories of days gone by, of a weave of events and figures that have left their signs, echoes and imprints there. 

Hotel Byron in Forte dei Marmi is one of these places. 

A villa whose construction was commissioned during the first half of the last century by José “Pepito” Caferino Canevaro Duke of Zoagli
, a cosmopolitan personality with unconventional spirit who still today seems to be incredibly fashionable  and a fore-runner of the times. 
An abode created as a residence and intimate buen retiro, designed for the family to spend their holidays together and receive the set of friends belonging to the beau monde.
