The beach is only 800 meters away from the campsite in Partaccia and it’s just waiting for you! Just grab all you need and get there! But if you are keen on discovering the beauties of the area around Massa Carrara, you are recommended to pay a visit to Lunigiana, to the village of Fosdinovo, to the city of Massa and its nice castle, to the city of Carrara and its majestic marble quarries.

The art cities of Tuscany lie just few kilometres away from the campsite and from Partaccia, just a quick ride and you can reach the wonderful Florence, Pisa and Lucca. Be seduced by the astonishing Cinque Terre, bordering Liguria, but do not forget to pay a visit to the unique Lerici and Porto Venere. Feel in heaven by spending a sunny day in these simple, yet so beautiful, places. Do not miss the charming town of Sarzana and the nearby Luni, an ancient Roman site where you can visit a museum and an amphitheatre.

If you are a mountain lover, during your holidays in Tuscany you must absolutely wander about in the Apuan Alps and follow the paths to one of the several huts, and rest and eat there before going forward. Another remarkable destination is the Garfagnana, located nearby, in the province of Lucca, just bordering the Lunigiana, whose wonderful landscape and the magnificent Park of the Orecchiella will surprise you.

The territory around Massa Carrara is an enchanting place, rich in history and beauties to see: villages, castles, medieval churches, ancient stone idols, breath-taking panoramas; not to mention the amazing food! You probably have heard about it, but never tasted it properly! You simply cannot resist the Lardo di Colonnata; the cities of Massa and Carrara will tease your appetite with exquisite meat tordelli (ravioli), the taglierini and beans, marinated salted codfish, the soft sweet rice cake, not to be confused with the typical one from the area of La Spezia, which is salty.
The Lunigiana will delight your palate with their panigacci perfect with cold cuts and cheese, with the testaroli with Ligurian pesto sauce, local porcini sauce, extra virgin oil and parmesan cheese; if you are a sweet-tooth, try them with nut cream: it’s just the best dessert! Last, but not least, the torta d’erbi, the castagnaccio, or the Marocca di Casola, a unique bread made with the renowned chestnut flour, typical of the Lunigiana.

Great wines such as the Vermentini Candia of the Apuan Hills and the Vermentini of the Luni Hills are produced in the province of Massa Carrara: you can enjoy them at a restaurant or at the wineries all long the area.
Do not miss some more specialties of these generous lands, such as honey, extra virgin olive oil, cold cuts and cheese.
Be tempted and seduced by the symphony of scents, flavours, culture and traditions offered by the wonderful Tuscany, all at your fingertips at Camping Calatella in Marina di Massa!
