... woke up and decided to spend the day around Pisa. We walked around and did a little bit of shopping, had pizza under the Leaning Tower, enjoyed some gelato, and had baguette, cheese, and tomatoes for supper! It was such a relaxing day, and we ended the evening taking a walk along the Main Street in Pisa and seeing everything for the last time! I had a little bit of a nightmare trying to fall asleep, due to a cup of tea that our English friends made us right before bed! So I stayed up ...
... I could see mountains too.
With so many of us on the beach, it was easy for people to go in groups to swim or take pictures or eat and have another group stay with our belongings on the beach. We ate at a little café type place that belonged to the beach, since the food there was cheap enough. They had typical beach food like hamburgers and hot dogs, but also things like caprese salad and melon with prosciutto. Briana ordered some french fries and the guy behind ...
... miniscule slice of bruschetta, when I get a text from Steve. We've been meaning to hook up all week, but he's having a beech holiday, without a car, and I've been travelling away from Viareggio during my tour. He invites me to join him and his wife Sarah for dinner. Sarah is doing the branding for my Silver Lobster business, and is lovely. So, what to do. My pasta arrives on a side plate, and I think, what the hell; this could be my starter. The ...
... to go to Moscow…of all places… but we need to make sure it is safe and that we can afford it…it is a long way away.
These last 3 days have whizzed past and we have done very little except enjoy the day to day life…getting up when we want to …having relaxing breakfast in a beautiful location…going for leisurely walks …buying delicacies and different drinks and eating (to moderation) what we like…and then going to bed ...
... I just know it. The town of Monterosso was equally as beautiful as the other four towns that we had seen before, and this is where I decided to do a little bit of my shopping, and some more eating : ) Stuffed mussels, calamari, and anchovies. I don't usually go for anchovies, but anything stuffed is good. The seafood was superb and I am guessing, fresh, seeing that we were literally right on the water. After dinner Taylor and I got our second gelato of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tirrenia Viareggio
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.
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.
