About Silvia Palagi

Hello everyone, my name is Silvia and I was born in Viareggio. After graduation, I lived and worked several years in Florence and Montecatini Terme. I am currently in Viareggio, where I deal with tourism.

Silvia Palagi purchased this apartment in 1964

Why Silvia Palagi chose Viareggio

For professional reasons, I know very well what are the problems associated with the hospitality. So - along with my husband Guido and my sister Gianna - we have decided to rent our apartments in Florence and Viareggio, with all the amenities we will would like to find in a house when we go on vacation and, I can say, our guests have always been very satisfied.

We are looking forward to welcome you and we are at your disposal for any information you need!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located in Viareggio, in the inner part of the "Garden City district," 50 meters from the pinewood and 400 meters from the beach, on the ground floor of a small building with garden, in a very quiet area. The place-reserved parking is right in front of your door. But forget the car: the city center, beaches and all attractions are easily accessible on foot, by bicycle or by public transport.

Very Convenient

  • 4 of 5

Myself, wife and 3 year old stayed for here for 6 days and found the apartment to be in a very convenient location within short walking distance of the beach etc. It is a nice clean compact studio with everything provided. Some useful extras such as bucket/spades, parasol and 2 bikes with kids seat on one of them. Secure private parking is also very nice, as parking can be an issue in Italy.

Our only gripe is the shower pressure which is quite low and goes hot and cold the whole time, which is a pain especially when showering a 3 year old! If they can sort that out, then very good otherwise.

Very pleasant stay in Viareggio

  • 5 of 5

Very cosy and comfortable apartament in Tuscany. I strongly recommend visiting Viareggio. Miss Gianna is a really open and kind person. She gave us a lot of useful information about the attractions that are worth seeing around. The apartament was fully furnished with nothing to complain about. The bonus were bikes which we used as a primary mean of transport.

I do recommend that offer

  • 5 of 5

Honestly? We did not expected such a good accommodation!It looks very good in pictures and reality is exactly the same! Owners took care of everything!Flat was well-furnished and so clean. We had everything we needed. One disadvantage - the coffe was so good that it was run out within a week :).

Gianna and he husband were nice, smiling and helpful. She gave us a lot of useful information. We had the bicycles as she promised to us and it was good mode of transpot and shopping. If you do not have a car it is easy to move by train between Viareggio and other city in Tuscany but also tiring, next time we will get a car. The best I can write without thinking I would choose the same offer next time picking up in that area

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely, well-furnished, and more spacious than we were imagining. The 2 bikes supplied were in good condition. The owners’ sister whom we met on arrival was lovely and was keen to help out with train times to local cities, recommending restaurants etc. There is a computer in the corner of the sitting room with quick wifi which was ideal for searching for things to do in the local area. There is a very nice roof terrace with beautiful views of the mountains to the back, however there was no chairs to sit out which would have topped it off. One slight disadvantage for prospective customers- the apartment is situated quite far from the free beach and marina area (about 6km). We were a young fit couple and so this half hour cycle along the promenade (great cycle paths along the coast in both directions) did not bother us, however I felt it was worth mentioning. A pay beach with beach bars etc is about 5 minutes away at the start of the main, long promenade. Viareggio is nice, however we preferred the restaurants along Lido de Camaoire for quality, friendliness and cost. An ideal apartment for trips to Pisa, and Florence by train, with a regular and fairly cheap service. There was not too much nightlife in Viareggio for two 20-somethings, however we still had a very relaxing holiday as well as travelling to nearby cities.

The marina of Viareggio is one of the best equipped in Italy

The apartment is located in the "Città Giardino" district, just 50 meters far from the pinewood and just 400 meters from the beach, on the ground floor of a small building with a garden in a quiet area. The city center is easily reachable by bicycle or by public transport.

Viareggio - deservedly known as the “Pearl of the Tyrrhenian”, thanks to its beaches of fine golden sand, touristic port, vast pine woods, and the elegant shops that face onto the long boulevard "Passeggiata" lined with Art Nouveau buildings - is able to offer fun and entertainment that range from Puccini Festival dedicated to Giacomo Puccini that here composed many of his most famous works, up to Carnival, one of the most beautiful feast of Italian folk and popular tradition, which makes the city attractive, even in winter.

It's also a great place for good food in the many restaurants included in the most qualified and prestigious food and wine guides, but also in trattorias, in which you can enjoy the cuisine of Viareggio, where the Cacciucco, famous fish soup, becomes the unchallenged sovereign of the table.

The central position of Viareggio also makes it an easy starting point to complete the holiday with cultural itineraries in the art cities: Lucca is only 15 km away, Pisa 20 km away , Florence 85 km away .For those who love the mountains, the park of the Apuan Alps is 50 km away. We suggest you do not miss a trip to the marble quarries, that are located about 30 km from Viareggio.

Upon your arrival we will provide Informations on all the local entertainments: about shows, museums, typical restaurants, pubs, discos and on where to shop.
