La Fucina is situated just one hours drive from the coastal strip of Versillia. From Forte dei Marmi to Torre del Lago Puccini, one can enjoy more than 20 km of beaches, parks and vibrant seaside resorts. The seaside town of Viareggio is probably the liveliest of them all. All along the Versillia Coast one can enjoy long stretches of white sandy beaches and child friendly bathing, the beach is divided into numerous strips of private beaches where one can hire out deckchairs, parasols and use bar facilities for a reasonable fee per day.

With a population of over 63,000, Viareggio is the main centre of the northern Tuscan Riviera known as Versilia, and the second largest city within the Province of Lucca.

It is known as a seaside resort as well as being the home of the famous carnival of Viareggio (dating back to 1873), and its papier-mâché floats, which (since 1925), parade along the promenade known as "Passeggiata a mare", in the weeks preceding Easter.

Travel a little further up the coast to the port of La Spezia and the boundary of the province of Liguria and you will find the gateway to the beautiful coastal villages called the Cinque Terre.

The Cinque Terre

The Cinque Terre is a rugged portion of the Liguria coast on the Italian Riviera. The Cinque Terre or “The Five Lands” is comprised of five villages; from north to south, Montorosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore.

The Cinque Terre is noted for its natural beauty. The five villages, the coastline and the surrounding hillsides are part of the Cinque Terre National Park and the area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There are boat trips from Viareggio to the Cinque Terre. The local railway runs along the coast from La Spezia to Genoa and connects with the “five lands”. You can also drive, but be aware that you cannot park in the villages and you will have to walk some distance from car parks.
