Massa

Massa Tuscany

The city of Massa is situated in a valley framed by steep and rocky mountains; its territory is characterized by an extreme variety of the landscape, that alternates beautiful valleys to spectacular alpine landscapes on the Apuane Alps. The origins of the city are unquestionably of roman age, when, in proximity of the river Frigido, not distant from the current city, rose the first human settlement. Today the city center is developed around the Malaspina castle of the 15th century and the Palace Ducale, of the Renaissance period, on Piazza Aranci (orange trees), therefore called for the double row of orange trees that delimits it. From the square, covering via Dante Alighieri, we arrive to the magnificent cathedral of the city. The most famous hamlet of the city is Marina di Massa, that is the part of the city that is on the sea. Here you will find sandy beaches protected from the artificial reefs, on which the waves of this charming sea break up, and many tourist structures. In summer, indeed, the beach is lively coloured in an interminable row of beach umbrellas.
