Villino Simona is in a mostly residential area in the centre of Viareggio. It is about 200 metres from the seafront and “passeggiata” promenade with its chic clothes shops and boutiques. Here you can find excellent fish restaurants, which are typical of this seaside area. Viareggio is on the Versilia coast where you can sunbathe at well-equipped beach clubs and enjoy the nightlife after sundown.
Viareggio has events all round the year, but particularly in summer when holidaymakers flock to the seaside. It is famous throughout Italy for its Carnival in February when gigantic mechanical floats move slowly along the promenade filled with admiring crowds.
Torre del Lago Puccini is the lake-side location of the most important theatre in Tuscany for concerts and operas. The Puccini festival is held in July and August.

Forte dei Marmi is a popular tourist destination known throughout Italy for its designer boutiques, luxury hotels and gourmet restaurants.
The walled city of Lucca with its narrow streets, numerous churches and museums is popular with visitors to Tuscany.
