The Tuscany region
Versilia is the pearl of the Apuan Riviera, a suggestive sandy coast bathed by theTyrrhenian Sea, the most limpid mirror for the Apuan Alps to reflect their majestic image.
This "marble kingdom" familiar to Michelangelo offers excursions to the quarries ofCarraraandMassaand spectacular views of the coast introd-uced by luxuriant hills and pine woods.
Riviera of Versilia extends from Forte dei Marmi, commonly called "il Forte" , passing through Marina di Pietrasanta, Lido di Camaiore ,Viareggio until Torre del Lago and it expands into the municipalities of Seravezza and Stazzema; it offers moreover the chance of visiting the most important touristic centres of Tuscany that can make your holiday really complete.
Versilia beach seaside is made of several miles of beautiful clean white sandy beaches, restaurants and shops, enjoy the beach to take baths, to get a tan under the sun, or sit in a chair and read a book under an umbrellarea.
Versilia renowned name is not only deserved for its beautiful sandy beaches, in the shade of the Apuan Alps. It has been the homeland and meeting point of great artists since the beginnings of1900. Inthose days, world-known artists, such as Lorenzo Viani and Galileo Chini, have made Versilia famous; it was theLibertyperiod, which has still left its strong mark in the lounges and palaces inViareggio.
Also in those days, Pietrasanta became the destination for sculptors who found there not only well-equipped workshops where they could accomplish their works in marble, but also the most skilled art foundry.
Forte dei Marmi has been the most fashionable resort in Versilia since the first elegant holiday homes were built in 1800, surrounded by pine forests opening onto a splendid beach. It has since attracted artists, painters, poets and writers who were enchanted by its surroundings, now equipped with high quality tourist facilities, although it retains the relaxed atmosphere of a small residential community. Also visit the Apuans Alps (mountains)
Enjoy the food
You will not forget our excellent cuisine. There are several famous fish dishes, as well the traditional Tuscan cuisine. You may prefer a pizza prepared in the traditional way or a terrific "spaghetti allo Scoglio" (spaghetti with seafood). Don't miss out on savoring the wonderful range of Tuscan wines, such as the "Montecarlo" white wine or the more classic "Chianti" reds. Most dishes are served with vegetables.
Enjoy the nightlife
At night you can take a quiet "passeggiata" (stroll) along the promenade, maybe tasting a "gelato" (Italian ice-cream), or choose the exciting nightlife.Viareggio, with its well-known "Versilian" discos, was a starting point for many a famous italian singers. In July and August you can see the "Puccini Festival" in Torre del Lago.
