FROM OUR HOYTEL PISA TOWER INN TO FABULOUS VIAREGGIO

An offer for your holidays in Tuscany
Few kilometers away from four-star Tower Inn PisaValdera of Pontedera you’ll find one of the most famous destinations in Italy – Viareggio. Not only can it be visited either for Carnival, when anyone can take part in colorful parades, dressed up with original costumes and masks and walk in processions among the carts, or in summer for getting a beautiful suntan. Viareggio is worth visiting during all the year: from Monday till Tuesday if you prefer a quite atmosphere, and from Friday till Sunday if you like crowded places. People love visiting this town, because it has preserved its ancient charm of a famous seaside resort, because here you can have some fantastic seafood dishes, also because there are too many things to see and to do in the surroundings, so many outdoor activities you can take part in, also you can enjoy your wonderful walks and first of all – it’s always sunny here. Not to mention the richness of the Museum Pole! In reality this charming city has always been sensitive to contemporary art. In Viareggio the clock hands on the Clock Tower never stand still: the day starts very early in the morning right on the beach, among slippers, cloths, headscarves and hats fluttering on the stalls of street vendors; among the tables of numerous bars, where tourists and locals share the same morning rhythm having breakfast; between newspapers and sweet coffee. But this town stays awake even at night; actually, on the other side, along the boulevard Europa, between funk music and colorful cocktails the fun lasts till the dawn. This is how the life goes on in Viareggio, without let or hindrance.
The renowned “Passeggiata” is such since the early years of the 900s, and starts from the pedestrian bridge that borders on Darsena, or from the Hotel Principe di Piemonte, and goes down to Lido di Camaiore. It’s an endless string of bars, boutiques and bathing establishments in such a quantity, that sometimes they complicate or even prevent the access to the sea. People here eat pizza and stare at shops’ showcases day and night, do jogging at the sunset, or biking whenever they wish along the new bike path. On the other side of the road there’s a long series of hotels overlooking the sea. Some buildings of the Passeggiata still preserve the typical elegance of the 20s and 30s, especially Gran Caffe Margherita in Viale Regina Margherita №30 and the nearby Chalet Martini, a clothing store with a fabulous interior, active since 1860. In Gran Caffe Margherita, Marconi, Giordano and Toscanini, along with other friends of Master Puccini, used to seat down to “that table”, according to a wall chart put up on the wall of this elegant café.
Chalet Martini, for its part, completely wooden, used to belong to a famous merchant from Lucca – Samuele Martini; inaugurated in 1899, by now it has become a clothing store where you can admire not only elegant dresses or fashionable jackets: even its interior design with its wonderful furniture will not leave you indifferent.
Once you decide to visit Viareggio, you can’t leave aside il Palazzo delle Muse (Palace of the Muses); in this ancient building in the very heart of the town there’s the center of Viareggio Museum Pole: the first floor hosts GAMC – Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery of Lorenzo Viviani, whose collection exposed in rotation is composed by lots of works of art, that have been either purchased, or received as a gift, and represent an important overview of Italian and International art of the XX century: Carrŕ, de Chirico, Chagall, Casorati, Guttuso – these are just some of the artists, whose works are exposed there.
On the second floor of the Palace you’ll find “La Fondazione Carnevale di Viareggio” (“Viareggio Carnival Foundation”), where you can get any kind of information in case your stay in the town coincides with this great holiday. Enjoy your walk!
