Where to eat fish on a boat

It could be a good idea to learn the secrets of fishing and the sea directly from the voice of professional fishermen who will take you out on the boat and serve you the catch they will pull up with their nets… a swim, lunch, a snack and return to the port of Viareggio.

Pescaturismo Evolutuin Viareggio – we set sail at 9:00 am from the Port of Viareggio, haul up the nets, cook and eat the fish, take a dip in the sea at the Gombo and at 4:00 pm return to port.

If you want to learn more directly from the voice of the protagonists, we leave you a link to a video in which they tell their story: link
