Port of Viareggio
The Port of Viareggio is located on the Tyrrhenian Sea at the mouth of the Burlamacca canal that connects Lake Massaciuccoli with the sea and divides the Viareggio coastline into Ponente beach, to the northwest, and Levante beach, to the south-east. The Approdo Turistico La Madonnina and the other docks are able to welcome medium and small boats in its floating docks, with an availability of 600 berths. All the main yacht service qualified companies able to solve any maintenance issue are available on spot.
Arriving in Versilia you will appreciate not only the beauty of these places and the liveliness of its nightlife, starting with the famous town of Forte dei Marmi, but also how Viareggio is the beating heart of the European nautical industry. In its hinterland you can easily reach the typical localities of the Apuan Alps with the marble quarries known all over the world, historic cities such as Lucca and Pisa, and furthermore the landscape of the gentle Tuscan hills that frame Siena and Florence. In a strategic position, it is the real gateway for those who come from the sea and want to enjoy the beauties of the city of Viareggio, Versilia and the entire Tuscan territory, as well as for those who overlook the sea and the Tuscan archipelago, coming from the hinterland.
