Viareggio – Holidays in Tuscany
Stroll along the boulevard
La Passeggiate of Viareggio. This boulevard is no less than 1.5 km long and well equipped with boutiques, bars, restaurants and ice cream parlors.
You’re in the right place if you enjoy shopping. You can find luxury brands such as Gucci and Guess here, but also local, often smaller, boutiques.
Also turn into a side street for more local shops!
Enjoy the beach
From the boulevard you can also access the paid beaches with the beach bars for an unprecedented luxury beach day.
But you can also enjoy the free beach close to the campsite. You are just a 20-minute walk away on the beautiful sandy beach. It costs nothing and is therefore less beautiful than the paid beaches.
Sellers (we also call them ‘walkers’) regularly come by with all kinds of things to sell; bags, sunglasses and self-cooled drinks. You can and may of course buy, but if you don’t want to, ignore or say a clear “No, grazie!” usually enough to keep them running.
If you say Italy, you say good Mediterranean food. Pizza and Pasta, but also bean dishes and fresh fish of course; it is Tuscany on the coast after all!
You can also enjoy good food on the boulevard. Make sure to check where the local population is; there it is good food!
Tasty Italian ice cream is of course also included. Get some really tasty gelato at Gelateria Mario (there is a branch near the campsite!).
Another tip if you like fish: at the beginning of the boulevard, towards the harbor and the long pier to the mouth of the harbor, there is always one fishing boat where you can buy the most delicious Fritto misto. Recommended!
Restaurants to visit for a fun evening and real Italian food? We know from our own experience that you can eat deliciously in Italy. Atil Fiaschetto (near Viareggio in Torre del Lago) you can enjoy delicious authentic Italian dining. Lovely outside, right on the water you can enjoy typical Tuscan food; salami, prosciutto, fresh pasta, bean dishes and delicious desserts. And everything is homemade!
If you are a lover of fresh fish, you can go to Fronte del Porto. This small fish restaurant is located near the harbor in Viareggio where you can enjoy delicious fish dishes!
