From the exclusive Versilia Golf Club to sailing
WHATEVER YOUR PASSION, THERE'S A SPORT FOR YOU
Going for nice walks or relaxed bike rides.
   
Villa Roma Imperiale - Forte dei Marmi
 

Exercise fans will have a plethora of ways to have fun. Not only are there water-based sports, like sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and surfing, you can also play tennis, or take advantage of the waterfront cycling path for jogging or biking.

 

And don't forget that Forte dei Marmi's official mode of transportation is the bicycle — race bikes, mountain bikes, super lightweight ones or ones with a wicker basket.

 

We suggest a leisurely bike ride through Forte dei Marmi's pine forest or the Parco della Versiliana. Galatea organizes a very special bike tour with a guide, which you can book through our staff. This is a bit like tours of the star's homes in Los Angeles, but with a more cultural, less glamorous bent. The tour winds between the quiet streets of our neighborhood, Roma Imperiale, with the goal of discovering Italian architecture in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

 

The meeting point is La Capannina. The tour lasts 90 minutes, covering 5 km and ending with a drink at Caffè Almarosa.

 

For a completely different option: the Versilia Golf Club. Nestled between the Apuan Alps and the sea, this par-71 golf green has 5,873 meters, and 18 holes, and was opened in 1990, designed by Marco Croze. More experienced players will enjoy the challenge of the 1-ranked difficulty of the 13 hole while others can learn on the driving range. Open year round but closed on non-holiday Tuesdays from November to February. It includes a driving range, putting green, carts, swimming pool, tennis courts, a pro shop, bar and restaurant.

 

For those looking for high altitude excitement, the Apuan Alps have over a hundred routes suitable for families or experienced walkers. There are hiking route, mountain bike routes, horseback riding trails or just guided tours for every level and degree of difficulty to discover amazing landscapes with a breathtaking view of the sea.
