Bocca di Magra

The town of Bocca di Magra is located at the place where the Magra River flows into the Mediterranean Sea out of the Magra Valley. Bocca means mouth, so this is the mouth of the river but it is so wide and well connected to the sea that it is a sea port.

The Monastery of Santa Croce has the best position on the top of the hill and you can see all the way down the Italian Riviera. This Monastery has a chapel with a wonderful cross of Jesus and Dante is said to have stopped by here searching for peace.

This is also a good starting place to see the Bay of the Poets, the National Park, take ferryboat rides to different destinations and visit local Roman ruins such as Luni.
