Pietrasanta has been the marble capital since the times of Michelangelo and today it has a lot of art galleries marble studios and bronze foundries as well as Italian fashion shops and commercial life. In the house where Michelangelo spent some months of his life in 1518 waiting for the marble blocks for the façade of the San Lorenzo Church in Florence tourists can drink an espresso coffee in front of the Piazza (Cathedral square). Many restaurants of the Tuscan coastal (Versilia) have moved to Pietrasanta in the last 10 years as the town is one of the top tourist sites in Tuscany. 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). Artists rent my apartments because they are really in downtown very close to the main studios and at the same time they are very comfortable and cozy. Tourists rent my apartments because 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). I suggest not renting a car. Our guests can use the train or the bus to visit the surrounding towns. If guests rent a bike there is a good bike path (very safe even for children) from Pietrasanta downtown to Marina di Pietrasanta (beach) and from there towards Forte dei Marmi (North-bound) and towards Lido di Camaiore-Viareggio (South-bound). Our guests could be interested in shopping in the main streets of Pietrasanta (the pedestrian one and the surrounding streets) and I suggest the street market in Forte dei Marmi on Wednesday morning (it s one of the best street markets in Tuscany as far as shoes and clothing are concerned). There is train from the Pisa Airport to Pisa Centrale (5 minutes) and from Pisa to Pietrasanta (30 minutes). From the train station to the apartments it is a ten-minute walk through the old Arrighina door and the Dome Square. Palazzo Ferretti has six lovely apartments (from XVIII to XIX century) in downtown. The area has traffic limitations and it is very quiet. The apartments are very close to the Cathedral Square the railway station the bus station the internet point the restaurants and the commercial area. All the apartments have washing machine safe steam iron ironing board free-to-view satellite TV set. The kitchen is very comfortable and it is fully equipped: microwave fridge freezer dishwasher etc. The garden is about 200 square meters and it has sun-beds tables chairs sun-umbrellas etc. Palazzo Ferretti is located in a quiet area a traffic restricted zone and you cannot drive your car to the apartments but you have to park at 3 minute walk from the apartment. I have only foreign guests mainly from USA UK and Northern Europe. Let me know where you are from and I will send to you a list of guests coming from your country: you can email them and asking about Palazzo Ferretti and Pietrasanta.
