You can start with a beautiful walk along a stretch of the city walls, enjoy a wonderful overview on roofs, alleys, tower-houses, wonderful churches and aristocratic palaces of the city, and then move into the historical town center, which is easy to visit because of its dimensions.
Discover Piazza S. Michele, the heart of the city, with the splendid Basilica in white limestone (12th – 14th century) and the splendid Palazzo Pretorio.
Pass by the characteristic shops overlooking the squares and narrow roads and reach Piazza del Mercato where you can admire the particular shape built on the tracks of the Roman amphitheatre dating back to the second century BC.
Then visit the famous Gothic Cathedral of San Martino (11th century) with the sculptural masterpiece of the tomb of Ilaria del Carretto and discover the characteristic Torre Guinigi with a huge holm on the top.
After a short journey, we reach the splendid and flat Versilian coast, in the seaside town of Viareggio, famous for its beautiful beaches, for the wonderful "Liberty" architecture that characterizes many of its buildings and the long and exciting walk along "Viale del Mare" with cafès–chantant, restaurants, shops, and venues that are among the most elegant of the coast.
Enjoy some free time to admire the architecture of the bathing establishments along the famous Viale Margherita, the chalet and cafés, including the Gran Caffè Margherita, a Liberty
style-building symbol of the city.
