Versilia is located in northern Tuscany, in the province of Lucca, and extends along the coast from Viareggio to the municipality of Forte dei Marmi to include inland Massarosa and the small towns of Seravezza and Stazzema. The coastal part has a great vocation for tourism. Its wide, golden sandy beach with all its facilities and services, make it a very popular destination for all those who want to spend a comfortable and relaxing beach holiday.
For those who also love the nightlife, the Versilia Riviera offers numerous clubs, restaurants, discos and pubs closed to the sea.
The Versilia is also a privileged destination for nature lovers, given the presence of the town's pine forests, the hills, the Migliarino-San Rossore-Massaciuccoli Natural Park with its lake of the same name, and the proximity of the majestic Apuan Alps, which offer the possibility of both demanding treks along rugged mountain paths and simple walks in peace and quiet.
Among the historical centres of Versilia, Camaiore is undoubtedly one of the most interesting places to visit. Of ancient origins, it retains the characteristics of a medieval village, rich in monuments including the Collegiate Church of Maria Assunta, in the main square, the Museum of Sacred Art and the Archaeological Museum near the historic centre and the Abbey of San Pietro whose rooms have been converted into a hostel for Pilgrims on the Via Francigena
Not to be missed is the traditional production of coloured sawdust carpets for the Corpus Domini festivities. During the night before the Sunday of Corpus Christi, the 'carpet-makers' create increasingly complex representations up to 50 metres long in the open air along the streets of the old town. From 2020, the tradition will be renewed in a way that allows compliance with the Covid 19 containment rules.
Lying on the surrounding hills, one can admire many characteristic villages surrounded by greenery, very attractive to foreign tourists who are increasingly moving here to choose a more natural lifestyle.
Camaiore is also important for food and wine tourism, for its authentic and genuine flavours, for its typical dishes seasoned raw with the local extra-virgin olive oil, which here, thanks to the microclimate of the hills influenced by the sea, acquires a unique flavour.
Some municipalities, particularly Pietrasanta, have focused a great deal on cultural tourism, which has brought a different kind of tourist to the area from those seeking a typical seaside or mountain holiday.
