Massa Things to Do

  • Fort Marmi

    This is a nice fort and looks like it was historically taken care of. Unfortunately, the day we were there, it was closed.

  • Cave di Marmo

    Don't know if its really a "must see"but it is pretty impressive. Don't like me be fool into thinking its marble caves - unfortunately cave doesn't translate as cave but mines... Anyway it was something different and it is where Michaelangelo got his first piece of marble for carving.

  • Beach at Marina di Massa

    This part of the Tyrrenian coast is very touristy and well-organized as for receptive structures. You will find plenty of the so-called BAGNI (bathing establishments). They usually have strange and odd names, mainly christian names (like "Bagno Maria") or places (like "Bagno Roma").

Massa Restaurants

  • Luniagiana's style

    Lunigiana is a very small mountain place between Emilia Romangna, Tuscany and Liguria, not far from sea but, actually in the hills.I visited Locanda Gavarini for Easter Day 2008; actually it was very very crowded (and it has 300 seats so when everything is full can be very noisy) and there was an already decided menu. I would have preferred to...

  • Lilia's cakes

    Lilia is a nice and kind ukrainian woman I know in Massa. As you can see from the picture, she makes wonderful cakes! Unfortunately, she doesn't sell her delicatessen but they're great gift for us!

  • Fish, fish, fish... and more fish!

    I had Tagliolini all' aragostella, but I suggest to taste all the rest. Their speciality dishes are Tagliatelle al ragù di mare, Gnocchetti al filetto di sogliola, Seppia alla piastra and Spaghetti allo scoglio.

    The best way to go somewhere around Massa is riding a bike. In Marina di Massa there's a brand new cycling path which makes your rides much safer than before!!! :)

  • Sand sculptures

    I've seen these sand sculptures a lot of times but I thought this one on the beach of Marina di Massa was very enchanting because of the nightscene and the lights all around it!

    Favorite thing: I like looking at the landscape! This is one of the views from the Malaspina castle and you can see a big part of the center of Massa, with the mountains on the back.
