Tuscany is a region not only for culture, art and history lovers. The most famous attractions can be found in Firenze, Siena and other towns but why not have a break and enjoy the sun and the sea remaining in Tuscany. Places like Viareggio, Massa, Forte dei Marmi offer wide ranging services, long beaches, restaurants, shops and even sights to visit.
Associated mostly with country pleasures, Tuscany is not usually thought of as a beach destination. But in fact, Tuscany is a paradise for beach lovers of all kinds; its coastal zones not only vaunt a wide variety of beautiful beaches, but they’re often flanked by many of the region’s most enchanting towns. From historic gems with long, sandy beaches to more hidden rocky coves, you’re sure to find a beach town perfect for your summer adventure.
