Marina di Pisa
The Viale D’Annunzio, the road that skirts the left bank of the Arno, leads from Pisa to Marina di Pisa, originally founded as a seaside resort in the latter half of the 19th century, even though the area had previously been inhabited by fishermen.
Marina di Pisa is set in wonderful scenery: the curved shoreline of San Rossore Estate and the outline of the Apuan Alps, with the horizon that seems to dive right into the blue waters of the sea.
The urban fabric of Marina di Pisa features many Art Nouveau buildings overlooking large squares looking out to sea and backed by pine woods.
The small sandy or pebbly beaches are protected from sea storms by strong breaker rocks; proceeding south, the beaches become wider and well equipped with bathing establishments and tourist facilities.
