... painted buildings and lampposts along the river. So we walked down to the Square of Miracles (loose translation) to see the Leaning Tower. We had so much fun just walking around, going into the cathedral and crying, and taking tons of stupid tourist pictures that were awesome. Now, the Tower and everything else was great, but the real highlight was an unplanned, 1-second event. Here's a little background: We were walking on the street and my mom ...

After Pisa, it was back to Livorno in our cab. Carol, Bob, Paul, and I decided to have the cab drop us off in the center of town while the others opted to go back to the ship. Once in town, we walked around Livorno, although it was a bit deserted on this Sunday afternoon. We did, however, find a nice small Italian restaurant and had some excellent pasta, ...

As the day dawned, it was obvious that today would be the exact opposite of the previous couple of days. Overnight, the clouds have retreated and can be seen in the distance sidling up to the horizon. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
We arrived in Vernazza from Milan on Wednesday afternoon. It was a relatively short 3 hr train ride from Milan. Except for the delayed trains, it was an easy trip. By the time we arrived ...

Many of the other faces we did not recognize, and then of course we were a little distracted because many of the leaders were depicted atop naked bodies in “interesting situations”. We could understand the mice chewing away at a Swiss cheese of Italy, even if we didn’t get ...
... is like. It was a bit of a walk down the beach to find the "spiaggia libera," the free beach. Most of the beach is divided into sections and each section is full of lounge chairs and umbrellas, but you must pay to be on that part of the beach. Since we are poor college students, we decided the free beach was good enough for us. It ended up being this tiny sliver of beach down at the very end by the rocks. Because it is at the end of the beach, our ...

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.
