Known as the “Pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea,” Viareggio is an alluring and sophisticated city located in northern Tuscany. The silky, sandy beaches offer breathtaking views of the Apuan Alps, home to the most beautiful white marble in the world. Part of Viareggio’s appeal is its rich history and prestige, making this seaside resort one of the most desired places to visit.
The prestige surrounding this city is due in large part to its shipbuilding industry. The most luxurious cruising yachts that sail the seas of the entire world were launched from the shipyards of Viareggio. It is here that you will find some of the most skilled and talented craftsmen of these ships. The same craftsmen that, in the earlier years of the now famed Carnival of Viareggio, played a huge role in the creation of the floats.
The city’s rich history continues today with the renowned Carnival of Viareggio. This yearly celebration, dating back to 1873, is given by a parade of floats and masks depicting caricatures of popular people. The finest and most magnificent parade has brought and continues to bring different cultures and people together.
