Four districts to experience: Fiumetto, Tonfano, Motrone and Focette. A pleasant alternative to the heat of the summer beaches. A series of green itineraries, easily manageable as there are no steep climbs.
Starting from Piazza XXIV Maggio, in the centre of Tonfano (reachable for those that are coming from Forte dei Marmi via the Viale Morin and the Via Crucci), we come onto Via Versilia and travel south, passing the shopping centre. At the end of Via Versilia, we turn left onto Via Tolmino, at the end of which (still on the left) we come onto Viale Toscana and its natural continuation onto Via Catalani.
Through these roads, onto which face prestigious hotels, villas and parks, we arrive at Via Corridoni and Viale Apua, that unite the Marina with the old part of the city. Having reached the Viale Apua we can admire the Prince’s Bridge (XVII century) and the large natural park of the Versiliana. Turning right, and continuing for about 450 m., we can find on our left the track that leads to the park.
The area, of about 100 hectares, is a zone of exceptional interest in that it represents the last part of Mediterranean scrub mixed with pine trees of the entire coastal zone, by now completely urbanised. The whole area, today public property, has landscape, hydrogeological and archaeology restraints. In an incomparable natural backdrop we reach Via Nizza, at the boundary with Forte dei Marmi.
From here we would advise you to reach Viale Morin, again skirting the Park. Halfway along towards Fiumetto, on the left, we can admire the famous villa where the poet Gabriele d’Annunzio stayed. In the summer around the villa, in a true natural theatre, an intense and qualified cultural programme (of prose, dance, music) is held. The bike ridden discovery of the Marina is concluded here under the fresh foliage of the pine trees so loved by D’Annunzio.
