The territory of Versilia stretches over an area of about 160 km2 along the coastal strip of North West Tuscany, with 20 km of very fine sand from Viareggio to Marina di Massa beneath the Apuan Alps and very well-organised beach facilities catering to all needs. You will breathe a relaxing holiday atmosphere dominated by the magnificent view of the Apuan Alps. Halfway along is Marina di Pietrasanta, an exclusive and renowned location for holidays with the utmost comfort and elegance. Beside it is the town of Forte Dei Marmi, with its refined shops, coffee bars and restaurants that still cater to the needs of an exclusive and select clientele.
Versiliana Park, behind the hotel, is the ideal place for a morning walk in the shade of the pine trees or for the more energetic to go jogging. For those who are fond of political and cultural debate, the famous “meetings” at the Caffè dellaVersiliana provide interesting artistic and cultural insights in the summer afternoons, in a magical atmosphere beneath the shade of the pines that were so dear to Gabriele d’Annunzio.
For younger visitors, “La Versiliana dei Piccoli” is a magical place specially created for children, with activities including clay, marble and painting workshops, a library, book crossing and a show arena. In the evenings, Versiliana Theatre offers shows performed by famous and distinguished companies.
Versiliaalso offers numerous possibilities for physical activities and enjoyment of your free time: from tennis or golf to sailing, windsurfing and riding lessons, all of which are available in the vicinity. For those who love hiking, mountain biking, pony trekking and the mountains in general, the Apuan Alps and Garfagnana are just a few kilometres from the hotel.
Famous cultural sites can be visited a short distance away, such as Torre del Lago Puccini, with Giacomo Puccini’s house, where he lived and composed many of his operas, or Pietrasanta, known as the “Little Athens”, with the “museo dei bozzetti” (model museum) featuring the plaster casts and photographs used to create the works of arts produced here by sculptors of great fame. The town of Seravezza or Carrara, at the foot of the Apuan Alps, is of mediaeval origin and its mountainous terrain is known for its marble quarries. Michelangelo himself came here to select the marble for his world-famous works of art. Viareggio, the fishing town famous for its carnival with papier-mâchéfloats, has an efficient tourist port.
