I'm hoping you can answer a few questions for me. I have found a fab deal to Marin Di Pietrasanta (hotel Venezia) for a week in September and I'm just trying to find a bit more out about the area.
Myself and my boyfriend (both in our mid twenties) are looking for a week away somewhere relaxing and away from the usual British tourist destinations. Basically we want sunshine, sea, good food and drink and perhaps a few things to do if we're bored on the beach - trips to other towns/an old town, etc. Does Pietrasanta sound like it would fit the bill for us?
My other questions are:
Is the area expensive whilst there? I.e. food, drink, transport.
Is it easy to get from the marina to the old town? Either by walking or bus?
What is the nightlife like? Im thinking wine bars and restaurants than nightclubs
Are all the beaches private and are they expensive? If there are free beaches are they nice and will they be busy? (We're going mind September)
Is there places to hire bikes?
And are there other towns within cycling (or walking) distance? I.e forte dei marmi
Finally can we get to Florence or Pisa easily? I'm thinking we might plan a day out to somewhere like that to break up the beach trips.
I'm sorry for all the questions, it's just our first holiday abroad together and I just want to make sure we get the destination right! And after all my searching this seems almost too good to be true!
I'm thinking of booking shortly so any quick responses would be really, really appreciated.
