We are in the heart of Versilia, the Tuscan seaside area, immersed in the natural setting of the foothills around Pietrasanta, a small yet big town full of art galleries and open air exhibitions. In a moment you can be at the seaside renowned for it’s bathing establishments and public beaches. Surrounded by the marvellous profile of the Apuan Alps, many nearby paths lead up the hills to small tucked away villages.
Almora B&B is located at the foothills of the beautiful Apuan Alps nature park, a major tourist attraction for its countless hiking trails and shelters.
The Versilia coast is just 10 km from Almora B&B, where you can find a great selection of beaches. In one day you can easily visit Cinque Terre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or Lucca, Pisa and Florence.
Galleries, studios, exhibitions and many other open-air events make Pietrasanta the ideal town for art enthusiasts. From the historic marble quarries in the surrounding mountains to every corner of the area, art is the protagonist.
Directly from Almora B&B or just a few km away, you can explore our surrounding mountains, the Apuan Alps, which in 2011 became part of UNESCO Geo-parks.
There are many CAI (italian alpine club) hiking trails and shelters found along the mountain paths, that offer a wide variety of choice in length and difficulty, along with many places suitable for rock climbing.
A mountain guide can be available to accompany you on your walks.
