Exhibitions, museums and tours
Art and culture, fundamental pieces for the entire region, find in Versilia their enhancement. Pietrasanta, called “little Athens”, has hosted exhibitions by Igor Mitoraj and Fernando Botero; Stazzema, where you can find “Parco della Pace”(Peace Park) and the “Museo della resistenza”(Museum of 2nd World War Resistance) , also hosts, in the nearby, Antro del Corchia, a 60 km underground path inside the regional park; Seravezza andForte dei Marmi, where you can find the most beautiful villas of Medici Family, made of marble and history; in Massarosa, that overlooks Lake Massaciuccoli, it is possible to visit an archeological side that still has remains of  resti the Ancient Roman Empire.
