Pietrasanta is a town and comune on the coast of northern Tuscany in Italy, in the province of Lucca. Pietrasanta is part of Versilia, on the last foothills of the Apuan Alps, about 32km north of Pisa. The town is located 3km off the coast (where the frazione of Marina di Pietrasanta is located). The Pietrasanta Marina, with golden sand and luxurious equipment, is considered one of the best beaches of Italy.HistoryThe town has Roman origins and part of the Roman wall still exists.The medieval town was founded in 1255 upon the pre-existing "Rocca di Sala" fortress of the Lombards by Luca Guiscardo da Pietrasanta, from whom it got its name.
