Viareggio

VIAREGGIO
Via Michele Coppino, 431, 55049 Viareggio LU

The 20th century has seen a significant development of the Tuscan coast and the tourism industry; this elevated Viareggio’s seafront area to one of the most appreciated seaside resorts of the region. The so-called “Passeggiata”, the pedestrian street that runs along with facilities, coffee bars, boutiques, art galleries in style Art Nouveau, has strengthened Viareggio’s fame of “Pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea”. Restaurants and venues all over the coast ensure an enjoyable nightlife for all ages. Every year the seafront becomes setting for one of the most famous festivals in Europe, Viareggio’s Carnival, a masked parade of colourful papier-mâché floats. Close to Viareggio, one can find places of touristic and cultural attraction, such as Torre del Lago Puccini, beloved by the illustrious composer Giacomo Puccini, the cities of Lucca and Pietrasanta, small gems of art and culture. Other highlights include Carrara and its famous white marble quarries, Massaciuccoli’s oasis with its lake and Roman ruins. One must not forget the possibility of day trips: Le Cinque Terre are easily reached by ferry. Viareggio is an excellent starting point to visit the most renowned Tuscan art cities such as Florence, Lucca, Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano and all the Chianti region.
