Viareggio by the Sea

Viareggio, in the province of Lucca, is easily reachable from Florence in more than an hour by train and car. It is an historic seaside resort, whose architectures betray a genesis in the liberty era. The beaches are white sand and the seabed is low. Here, you can find well-equipped bathing establishments, but little free beach. The sea is not beautiful, but the promenade is truly impressive and the place of excellence of fashion boutiques. A remarkable detail: in Viareggio there are excellent seafood restaurants!

La Lecciona

It is not a very easy but very enjoyable trip that you can associate with a visit to the ancient Etruscan city.

La spiaggia libera di Cala Violina è una delle perle della Toscana. Si trova a pochi minuti da Follonica, nel cuore della Maremma e circondata da boschi che diradano a strapiombo nel mare. Il nome – secondo la leggenda – deriva dal rumore, come di violino, che fa la sua sabbia quando viene calpestata. L’accesso è consentito solo a piedi e il parcheggio per l’auto è a numero limitato. Bisogna arrivare molto presto la mattina per poter accedere a questa esclusiva meraviglia della natura toscana!
