Pietrasanta is one of my favourite places on the Versilia Coast to visit. The centre of Pietrasanta is a little inland from the beach and is known for its foundries and art galleries.
There are always amazing art pieces in the main piazza. The very impressive work of Polish artist Igor Mitoraj is now on display.
You may not have noticed the face in the thigh of the sculpture.
…but wait, there’s more.
There are some wonderful restaurants in Pietrasanta. La Giudea was always one of our regular places for lunch and we were a bit disappointed when it changed hands.
We need not have worried, the new owners are doing a great job, and are much more friendly than the previous owner who was a bit of a grouch. The name has changed too. It is now Barsanti 54.
Here is our food from a couple of visits. All meals were delicious…traditional Italian with a modern twist…just the way I like it.
There are lots of good reasons to visit Pietrasanta.
