Viareggio
Tuscany - Viareggio
Viareggio is Versilia's most popular seaside resort, known also for its Carnaval held in January and early February. Beautiful avenues lined with palmtrees, oleanders and Mediterranean plants run through the residential area placed between the grand Apuane Alps and the sea. Its famous Art Nouveau style of architecture can be seen in the grand hotels, villas, and cafes built in the 1920's. The finest example of Italian Art Nouveau is the Gran Cafe Margherita designed  by Galileo Chini.
