Lucca

Lucca is a Roman city (consider the Piazza Anfiteatro) and is one of the capitals of the Tuscan Romanesque architecture style (exemplified by the Duomo, S. Frediano, S. Michele in Foro, etc.). This Tuscan style is from the 17th and 18th century Baroque and Rococo traditions, as well as the Napoleonic Era. In fact, Luisa Baciocchi, the sister of Napoleon I, was the Duchess of Lucca and spent most of her time there. Today, the historic center of Lucca is exclusively pedestrian and surrounded by mighty walls from the 16th/ 17th century. It’s known for the beautiful views of the city and access to its monuments and churches, in which you can enjoy from its 4km tree-lined path, both on foot and bicycle. For those traveling by car, there are extensive parking spaces outside the walls.

Lucca is known for many things, one being its renowned XVIII century opera house, the Theater of Giglio. Concerts are held there alongside Operas in the winter season. Every September/October there is the Lucchese Autumn Festival, an occasion for costumes, parades, exhibitions, concerts, games in the squares, and more. Lucca is also the home of the International Comics Show, held the first week of November. Every third Saturday and Sunday of the month hosts the Lucca Antiquarian Market, one of the most beautiful and important antiques markets in Tuscany.

In Spring there is the Murabilia: an exhibition market of quality gardening. It is one of the more important Italian events dedicated to flowers, plants and all things gardening. It takes place every year in the first weekend of September, among the incomparable setting of the walls of Lucca on the San Regolo ramparts, La Libertà, in the Botanical Garden and in the basements of the walls.

Pisa

Pisa is a maritime republic, historic rival of Genoa, separated from the sea by the Tenuta di S. Rossore and Parco di Migliarino. Both are ideal for walks amongst the pine forest. Pisa is famously known for its Romanesque ensemble, featuring the Duomo, Camposanto, Baptistery and of course the Leaning Tower, all among the green Piazza dei Miracoli. The Arno River crosses the city and is enclosed by the beautiful Lungarni; streets that flank the river in each city it meets. On one side you can find the National Museum of S. Matteo in the Medici palace, and on the other the Gothic marble chisel of S. Maria alla Spina. The Piazza dei Miracoli is famous for being the site of Galileo Galilei's first experiments on the force of gravity. Near is the University of Pisa, setting Pisa as one of the most important university cities in all of Italy. It is also home to the Scuola Normale Superiore, famous for sciences and mathematics.

Torre del Lago Puccini

Torre del Lago Puccini’s claim to fame is the house of the composer Giacomo Puccini, who was originally from Lucca. The musician hunted ducks at the nearby Lake Massaciuccoli. Today, the famous Puccini festival take place here in the summer months, showcasing his operas in the beautiful open-air theater, adjacent to the same lake he visited in his time. 

Viareggio and Lido di Camaiore

Viareggio is the capital on the seashore of Versilia. It has a 5 km promenade (featuring boutiques, cafés, restaurants, bookshops, art galleries, and more). Viareggio is known for its elaborate carnival parade floats and music shows comparable to the Carnival of Rio de Janeiro. It boasts the most beautiful beaches in Versilia.  Viareggio begins with the Parco di Migliarino and ends at the Tenuta di S. Rossore, arriving at the Pisan mouths of the Arno. In recent years Lido di Camaiore has been competing with the Viareggio promenade. The Lido promenade is all light marble, wide, and separate from the traffic by palm’s gardens and the bike path leading from Viareggio to Forte dei Marmi. It is ideal for shopping, visiting cafes and restaurants and often you can find artisan stalls. The jewel of the path is the new jetty, the most modern and beautiful of Versilia.

Forte dei Marmi

Forte dei Marmi is the most sophisticated seaside resort of Versaili. It is famous for its beaches and high-end fashion. Located directly on the seaside, it offers an 18-hole golf course as well as numerous horseback riding schools.
