Forte Dei Marmi
Forte Dei Marmi is a very famous luxury resort on the Tyrrhenian coast. It is located around the pier which was built back in the 16th century by the locals in order to load Apuan marble on ships and export it to neighboring countries. In 1788, Leopold I founded a small fortress that protected the pier, and today some ruins of the fortress are still preserved. The name of the city of Forte dei Marmi, which means "fortress of marble," comes from this fortress.
