7 days in Versilia and 7 things to do
unusual itineraries: the sea, nature and the most beautiful villages
Take a bicycle and go from the pier of Forte dei Marmi to the pier of Viareggio
A long cycle path – 12 km of the Tirrenica cycle path – that connects Viareggio to Forte dei Marmi passing through the three piers that of the Forte, Marina di Pietrasanta and Lido di Camaiore and then down to the pier and the Viareggio port, an easy way to spent an afternoon by the seashore.
Rent a canoe at the Oasi Lipu of Massaciuccoli
It is the best way to dive among the reeds of the Oasis, the fishermen stilts house and the canals and to be able to observe the birds of the lake. From Massarosa follow the signs for Massaciuccoli and the LIPU Oasis
A ride to Serchio’s mouth
To enjoy the dunes and the pine forest, the Mediterranean scrub and a very long free beach. You go south beyond Viareggio on the slopes that cross the Levante pine forest, you pass Marina di Torre del Lago on the dirt road by the sea and you get to the Serchio river mouth.
A walk in Viareggio
Enjoy a Liberty walk through the historic buildings of Viareggio with a stop at Caffè Margherita
A coffee in the square and then around shops and galleries; treat yourself to a visit to the Cathedral at the nearby Cloister of Sant’Agostino and to the Museum of Sketches and then find the works around the city left by Botero, Mitoraj and many other artists who have lived and worked in Little Athens
A trip to Casoli of Camaiore
Casoli di Camaiore is known as the country of graffiti, its streets, the walls of the houses, doors and windows, are embellished with wonderful graffiti to be discovered walking freely around the village
A dip in the Malbacco pools
An idea for the summer if you are looking for a bit of refreshment and a different day from those spent on the beach under an umbrella; a little adventure with a packed lunch in the backpack, a towel and a change of clothes
