Forte dei Marmi

To Italians, Forte dei Marmi is a mythical name, the `Queen of the Italian Riviera,’ even if it means little to most foreigners. This upmarket summer resort on the Versilian coast is considered the epitome of chic. Forte dei Marmi is the Tuscan resort for socialising and being seen, only outdone by the bijou Punta Ala resorts further south, around Monte Argentario. Unlike much of the northern coast, Forte dei Marmi has retained some of its elegance and is far less blighted by beachfront development. Forte dei Marmi grew up around a fort built in 1788 by Leopold I of Tuscany, the remains of which survive in the main square. At heart, this is still a low-rise resort, with the highest things being the pine trees in private villa gardens. Forte is still a fun place for living a mellow version of the high life, with chic beach-life in abundance.
