    Default Sun and sand on the Tuscan Coast

    Outside of Italy you hear so little about Tuscany's beaches that it's easy to forget that this sun-kissed region even has a stunning coast.






    The Grand Hotel Imperiale is the newest and brashest hotel in Forte dei Marmi. It opened about two years ago, setting a new benchmark for ostentation, manifest first and foremost in its obsession with marble.

    I was surprised to read that article by Frank Bruni in the NYT, it's not like the coast is not touristic, it's packed with tourists most of the year

    That last pic reminds me of that lone guy on the beach moments before the
    2004 Tsunami hit.
