Surrounded by the magnificent chain of mountains of the Apuan Alps, Viareggio is a city full of light, with Liberty architecture and long beaches of fine sand.

Viareggio is a focal point in northern Tuscany. Located a few kilometers from famous art cities such as Pisa or Lucca, Viareggio is a city of culture rich in small and large festivals, events and folkloristic events. Among these, the Carnival of Viareggio, a centuries-old tradition that transforms walks by the sea into a large open-air stage, where gigantic floats parade, in the midst of the public dancing, laughing, joking and participating. The playful spirit of the local people is born from the carnival and the navy.
