Elegant and refined, Viareggio is one of the most famous coast resorts in Versilia and a tourist destination known all over the elite world, being just two kilometers from the very popular Forte dei Marmi. The night lights make room for a lively and coloured landscape in summer and for wonderful sunset and quietness in winter. In any case, Viareggio is always the right place to visit as it displays, during every season, different kinds of attractions: the landscape is unique thanks to the greenery of the hills, the pinewoods, intertwine with the blue of the seashore, to the Carnival and the eclectic, art-nouveau and deco landscape architectures, where Galileo Chini, Lorenzo Viani and P.B. Shelley used to walk through.
Its name derives from the tower in Via Regia, which was built during the XVth century by the inhabitants of Lucca. In that time the arbour became lively and trading was set going, even if the real industrial growth started only some century later and was based mostly on shipyards, as the sea, the big ally of the inhabitants of Viareggio, constituted the starting point to build the fishermen's boats. Nowadays, yachts and posh boats are designed and built in the same shipyards.
This charming town's growing popularity has made it a very sought-after setting where to buy an elegant luxury villa.
