The local beach
Lido di Camaiore’s beach is right in front of the pedestrian promenade, with its pretty flowerbeds and palm trees. It’s a fantastic stretch of sand that runs for 4 kilometres between neighbouring Marina di Pietrasanta and Viareggio. There’s a gentle shelf into the sea, some great watersports – and that prom with all the cafés and restaurants you could need.
Medieval towns and the city of Florence
