Forte dei Marmi is a pretty cool place but the way they have the beach all jail-celled off is really awful. You have to pay a lot of money to have access to the beach… and the beach is HUGE. The town and food are great though. I'll pass on its beach and go up to Viareggio, Santa Margherita, etc.
As I've said before, you should have a blog about buildings as a sideline. Your photos are great. Not just when the subjects are the houses, and the gardens, but also when the buildings and the gardens are there as background for the people in front.
It would be great to have "The Architectural Sartorialist", too.
Incredible shots, beautiful hotel, extremely Italian (and not unpleasant to look at) lifeguard. This post gives me the most unbelievable urge to shove a bikini in my bag, book any lastminute.com flight to Italy and flee this hideous London weather, ideally for a good month or so. X
I am loving these photos you took in Italy, specifically because you not only show fashion, but the culture in Italy. As a poor fashion student studying in Toronto, I don't have the money to travel, but at least I can experience Europe through your blog.
In the early '70's Forte Dei Marmi was pristine & very beautiful, though the sand was not as clean as Miami Beach or the Caribbean. However, the vibe there was and still is special, especially in the shops, discos, and nightclubs. I felt priviledged to have fallen in love and live there for 2 glorious unforgettable summers surrounded by all those guys with great tans and amazing bodies. It was there that I became truly an 'Italicized' American forever!
I'm ten years old and I have been to Forte Di Marmi. I have stayed at the Augustus Hotel. I loved it there. Everyday I rode a bicycle and ate pizza. I remember going to the beach and lounging around all day! Everyone should go!
I simply love the garden that is filled with flowers. It's a perfect place to sit down and enjoy the scenery with a hot cup of coffee and some biscuits. I somehow feel rejuvenated looking at this pix. Truly lovely!!
Your photos are absolutely stunning!!Been there couple years ago, really nice place.Thanks for your cute words about Italy. Nice places, nice pics.Oh, Forte Dei Marmi! My favorite Italian seaside town. I've seen some of the most glamorous cyclists there!hi i am Ravi.
I personally think you should spend more days in FDM next year… ok Augustus but a lot of other places are must: Orlando for delicious focaccia and pizza; la versiliana for jogging and cultural events; Pietrasanta for art and surrounding….and many many many other places and events… You'll fall in love with Versilia
Forte dei Marmi! A dream front the mediterranean sea. Next time try the ALbertina Bagno! The nonna is the cooker and the frittura mista is perfect. Guillaume a Parisian guy who love Forte! http://myvision/mylabstudio.com
