HOTEL BRUNELLA IN LIDO DI CAMAIORE
3 star hotel close to Viareggio - Hotel in Versilia seafront

The Migliarino - San Rossore - Massaciuccoli Park

Close to Versilia and the most celebrated tower in the world, at Pisa, there is a mosaic of natural environments miraculously intact and protected by the park. The beach is rich in low dunes and pioneer plants and is one of the most isolated on the Tuscan coast. Behind it rise green pinewoods (planting began in the 1700s), perfumed expanses of Mediterranean scrub and strips of mixed woodland, where a rare liana, the silk vine, climbs towards the canopy and where fallow deer and wild boar live. Of note is Lake Massaciuccoli, home to important avifauna and precious peat bogs that extend between the reed groves.

Giacomo Puccini and the Puccini Festival

Giacomo Puccini came to Torre del Lago in 1891. After living in rented houses for a few years, he had his villa built in 1899. The Maestro composed most of his works in Torre dl Lago: Manon Lescaut (1893), La Bohéme (1896), Madame Butterfly (1904), La fanciulla del West (The Girl from the Golden West -1910), La rondine (The Swallow -1917) and the Trittico (Trilogy -1918). The house became a museum after the Maestro's death and retains its original appearance. Giacomo Puccini's mortal remains are in the Chapel.

In the museum, today run by the Friends of Giacomo Puccini's House (President: Simonetta Puccini, the Maestro's granddaughter) one can visit the study which houses the piano, portraits of the composer at various times in his life and the funeral mask that was brought from Brussels where the musician died, the hunting room with shotguns and bird hunting trophies, the veranda with pictures by his Macchiaioli painter friends (social and hunting companions during his stays at Torre del Lago). In the museum one can rediscover the atmosphere in which Giacomo Puccini lived, the rooms are left almost intact, and fully savour this unique place where the Maestro found inspiration for his immortal melodies.

Parco Pitagora

15,000 square meters, a green paradise immersed in a a small town: in the beautiful Versilia in Lido di Camaiore. Between the Tyrrhenian Sea and Apuan Alps, it is small when compared to the big Italian Theme parks, but it is special because unlike all of them, Parco Pitagora is open all year round to provide continuous service to residents and tourists. It was born on an existing park closed in 1997 following an idea from the now current manager, it was obtained by Camaiore Town hall and awarded following a competitive tender as a result of a strong effort. Since 12th of July 1997 (inauguration day) the park has continued to improve from year to year by offering new opportunities for entertainment and fun in addition to improvements to the environment and the entire outdoor area being well maintained and fenced.
