We have identified the 5 main things to see in Marina di Pietrasanta, what we think characterizes it:
- The heart of the center goes from the pier and the promenade to Via Versilia which is partly a pedestrian area.
Here there are shops and a wide choice of pizzerias and restaurants, ice cream parlours, clothing and sports shops, perfumeries.
On Saturday morning it takes place in the square in front of the pier and in the streets surrounding the weekly market, well known among its visitors, in particular, for clothing.
- The name that most of all is linked to Villa La Versiliana is that of Gabriele D’Annunzio. The poet loved to spend the summer and part of autumn in the Villa owned by the family of counts Digerini Nuti. The Villa was built in 1800 and still today art exhibitions are organized inside.
The Versiliana Park is what remains of the coastal forest, the so-called “Macchia di Marina” that existed already in 1300, and extends for about 800,000 square meters.
It is a forest full of alders and pines and a dense undergrowth and can be visited by following three different routes: Un bosco per noi’, Percorso vita policrosalus’ and ÄVersiliana bike’ . It’s common to find people running and horseback riding.
Renowned over the years for the importance of the shows on the calendar, the International Festival animates the afternoons and evenings of Versilia, in particular July and August, now for many decades. Immersed in the green of the pine forest, the Teatro della Versiliana offers theatrical performances, ballet and concerts of light and classical music with national and international artists of world renown.
Famous is the Café della Versiliana where in the afternoon are interviewed characters of the show, journalism and politics but also local personalities by authoritative names of journalism on current affairs, politics and entertainment. Participation in the Café for the public is free.

It is often possible to practice some water sports (surfing, sailing, windsurfing, beach volleyball ) and the wide spaces guarantee the tranquility of all.
In general, the activities are not intrusive and the tourists remain satisfied both for the tranquility and for the possibility of carrying out activities.
- In 2017, the municipal administration formalized the birth of the International Sculpture Park, an Artistic Traffic Zone that involves the entire municipal area, including the Marina.
