Bocca di Magra
Bocca di Magra is a tiny village in the district of LA SPEZIA, which grew as a fishing area over the homonymous River MAGRA at the mouth of the river, by the sea.
This river is the natural border between Tuscany and Liguria as the supreme poet Dante described in his DIVINE COMEDY.
Its being off the beaten track of Lerici, Portovenere and the Cinque Terre, though close enough to them for a day trip, gives the area a tranquillity that is reminiscent of a past in which we could live in a slower rhythm, where time and silence were precious.
From here, you can easily drive to Montemarcello and head to Lerici, an important resort with a castle, full of restaurants and boats, where the coast boasts the most stunning view of the two islands of Palmaria and Tino, where the seawaters are very clear and bright blue.
Versilia area is at short driving distance for those who want to experience a bit of a nightlife or shopping in Forte dei Marmi and Pietrasanta.
Bocca di Magra has been the favourite retreat and meeting place of famous Italian writers and lecturers as EUGENIO MONTALE, GIULIO EINAUDI, CESARE PAVESE and more others and it is part of the Natural Park of Val di Magra e della Terra di Luni.
Nice and easy walks to Montemarcello and the Monastry of the Carmelitani Scalzi on a sheer cliff.
The trips on the Alpi Apuane, rocky marble mountains unique in the world, and their white walls, provide the visitors with a great emotion thank to its Marble quarries, where artists like Michelangelo came here to get the beautiful white marble for their masterpieces..and, why not, stopping in the tiny village of Colonnata to taste its famous Lard to be enjoyed with a glass of genuine local wine.
