and relax under the Versilia's sweet sun!
Located on the Tyrrhenian Sea and set among thick pinewoods
rich with lush Mediterranean vegetation, the Versilia coastal strip is
characterized by 20 Km of fine, wide sandy beach gradually descending
into the sea.
The four Versilia seaside towns - Viareggio, Lido di
Camaiore, Marina di Pietrasanta and Forte dei Marmi - are in a position
to offer visitors an exciting experience in full relaxation.
For nature lovers, a great alternative to the equipped
beaches are Versilia’s vast free-beach areas, the widest stretching
from Viareggio to Torre del Lago Puccini (approx. 3 kilometres long),
containing coastal dunes of great naturalistic interest which are part
of the Regional Park Migliarino San Rossore.
The Viareggio harbour with its dockyards full of attractive
boats and luxurious yachts, its world-renowned shipyards as well as the
equipped beaches of the Versilia seaside towns provide boating and sailing
enthusiasts a wide range of opportunities to explore the sea with all
kinds of vessels and practice all kinds of water sports.
The Versilian sea has always been an important means
of sustenance and Viareggio, with its ancient seafaring heritage boasts
one of the most important fishing fleets in the Tyrrhenian Sea supplying
fresh catches to the huge number of seafood restaurants and fish shops
of the area.
