Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tirrenia Viareggio
Great deal, close to the beach
We spent the last 5 nights of our honeymoon here. After 6 days on heavy sightseeing we were happy to truly relax here. The town of Viareggio is a nice beachside town with lots of shopping, restaurants and open markets within 3-4 blocks for the hotel. It was only an hour drive from Florence, 12 km to Pisa and 20 km to Lucca. The hotel is only a block from the beache. The rooms are not huge but comfortable, clean and quiet. The hotel owner Lucca was very hospitable and usually available to answer any questions. The complimentary breakfast was one of our favorite parts of the day with pastries, fruit, cereal, yogurt, bread, cheese and salami, coffee, tea, or cappucinos/expresso. And in the evening you could buy a glass of wine or beer and sit in the garden or at a table in the dining room. The price was very affordable after visiting Rome and Italy (~90 euro/night) and just as comparable as far as the room and amenities. We easily parked on the street the hotel was on 30 ft. from the door of the hotel with no difficulty.
FYI - all of the beaches are private there and you pay for access to the beach with a lounge chair or for an umbrella and two sling back chairs. They are very clean, have toliets, showers, changing rooms and snack bars or their own mini restaurants. The hotel has a discount as one of the beaches a block away, ask owner for pass.
We stayed at the Hotel Tirrenia on the first night of our Italian vacation and it was outstanding in every respect. The staff, accomodations and breakfast were exceptional. The location was perfect with easy access to the beach and town centre, and Luca recommended an excellent seafood restaurant nearby. We hope to return very soon.

... for food and lodging.
We chose option A), even extending our stay from one night to three, giving us enough time to service MAX and Dasiy-Su. We also explored the township near the village, and at times felt like a donkey should be carting wares past us at any moment. The township was medieval as well, but had not nearly as much attention as the eco-village. It was rugged and very very old, with tunnels leading to teeny doorways, the baffling part being that people ...
... that was the other language he could speak (as the other foreigners seemed to be German and from some other non-English speaking countries plus some Americans that arrived later.)
One great thing about this restaurant is that you don't have to get only pizza, pasta or some kind of not so great thing that is supposed to be meat or fish. They have real fish and real meat. I opted for the agnello (lamb) special as I had had sea bass the first time and it was ...
... Andes paths: trail running taken to the extreme.
The design and engineering of the small marinas was amazing. Each town had one and the boats were all out of the water covered in tarps against the rain. One fisherman told me that they started going out fishing in late March early April. There were steep boat ramps with winch systems it looked like and even a crane which lowered boats from high on ...
... stores were open on Sundays…but I was wrong …I walked for two hours from one supermarket to the next…always thinking that they were all open. I finally made it to Esselunga and bought what I needed to buy.
On my travels I walked past an obvious Lucca F.C. supporter and asked (nicely) what time the game was on…well!!! Somehow, I had offended this elderly gentleman…the first thing he said - in Italian of course...

... until you are sixty to travel. Travelling and trying to function in another culture is a broadening experience and the earlier you are broadened the better. We feel old by the end of the day, can only take a limited number of hours a day of new, strange and interesting things and then we are full up with stimulation. If we were ten or thirty years younger, I`m sure we could wring even more from this fabulous time we are having.
Not homesick but missing you all. Love, ...
