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.
Friendly and good standard

... the tourist centre was open. A brochure was found. 18.00 had been crossed out by hand and replaced with 21.00. Oh. None of the signs around town had been corrected. Guess the locals knew better. Cycled home, had dinner, then returned for 21.00. Definitely worth the effort. The trio were excellent. Passing cyclists and walkers also stopped to listen, the jazz enthusiasts already present. A magical evening. ...
In defense of Pisa I don't think the city has claimed to be anything more than its main tourist attractions. I came to Pisa due to the cheap budget air flight...$100 round trip from Belgium...using it as a hub to see some other places in Tuscany. I flew in late on a Thursday, checked into my hotel, and went straight to see the tower at night, as it was only a few blocks from where I was staying. The tower was nice, though smaller than I ...
... my hostel (which is a common theme of getting lost when I'm in a new area). After I arrived I met some new friends and ventured into the small town to see some sights. Words can express this towns beauty so Ill show you the few pictures I have on my iPod! Ps sorry this post is so short, I wrote a longer one earlier and I accidentally deleted it ...
... right direction, and this last in a long line of happy accidents led
us to a charming Italian town where we stopped for lunch. The road
was ace, twisting through the hills of a national park, Christina
agreed, but only after a few travel sickness tablets!
We eventually arrived at what must be
the best piece of P.R. Work ever. The Italians have managed to turn a
monumental (literally) building cock up into a world famous tourist
attraction. I ...
... It was a lovely town to stroll through. The town was still a little sleepy waiting for the throngs of Tuscan trotting tourists that must be arriving shortly. Our tour guide explained that the city had only been taken over by force once by Napoleon. He installed his sister there to rule. She promptly tore down the houses in front of her seat of government creating a large square that holds an annual music festival. The festival ...
