Golden beaches, a hinterland with small villages and natural parks for you to explore, a mild climate and a buzzling nightlife: this is Versilia, the ideal holiday destination in summer and winter. A straight coastline ranging across some 20 km, which can all be done by bike thanks to the cycle paths connecting the towns on the seafront.
The presence of archaeological sites, Romanic parish churches, medieval villages, fortresses and castles are a testament to the long history of this land, populated since the Neolithic age. In coastal towns like Forte dei Marmi, Marina di Pietrasanta, Torre del Lago and Viareggio offer plenty of opportunities to enjoy yourself. In summer, during the day the beach facilities take care of their guests, while at night the many clubs and trendy venues come to life with their cheerful and fun atmosphere. Pietrasanta, an art town renowned for its sculptures, is a gem that expresses itself through its elegant and quiet streets. Forte dei Marmi is a pleasant retreat for those seeking a stylish, charming holiday. Massarosa is near Lake Massaciuccoli, Camaiore is on a series of hilltops, while Stazzema and Seravezza north of Versilia are beautiful towns in terms of nature, landscape and culture. The Apuan Alps are the ideal backdrop for trekking and touring on a mountain bike. Viareggio will surprise you with its Art Nouveau stile, its traditional Carnival and its Puccini Festival.
