Has Viareggio practically closed down in October? Will shops, restaurants be open?
Could you recommend a nice hotel of pension in Viareggio?
Reading your comments is sounds like the water is not that nice along the versilia riviera? I start my trip in Lucca and have an extra 3 days for the coast. I leave from Pisa to go home. What City would be the best choice for a stay by the beach?Is there any nice water? Thank you.
A group of us including a 1 year old toddler will be in Florence in Feb 2011 and coincidentally will be there on one of the sundays when the carnivale parade will take place. So we planning for a day trip there. We prefer to visit Pisa before heading to Viareggio.
BUT despite my best efforts, i just could not find details about the carnivale. Need help with the planning
1. Do we have to buy tickets? If yes, how? can they be purchased online in advanced? price for tickets?
2. What time does it start? what time should we be there? what time does it end?
3. Will the train be packed? is reservation required?
4. The plan is to travel by train from Florence to Pisa (just for the tower). Lunch at Pisa. Take train to Viareggio. Wait/watch/experience the parade then train to Lucca for dinner before heading back to Florence and crash. Is this possible? Any other suggestions?
Please help. Spent days just looking for these info or any idea on how to do this but been unsuccessful. Either no info or lots of conflicting info. Thanks in advance

Hi to my helpful VT friends!
My family and I are staying in Viareggio for a week before exploring more of Tuscany (Florence, Siena and Porto Ercole). I am looking forward to seeing Lucca, Cinque Terra and Pisa but can anybody suggest any other places to visit or experiences to enjoy whilst in Viareggio? Will there be any opportunities to have a boat excursion, is it realistic to have a trip to Elba and any ideas about scuba diving? A lot of questions I know, but you're always so helpful - thank you!

Hi, I'm the team manager of a group of amateur athletes. We are going to Viareggio to compete in the World Life Saving Championships. We are hoping to stay in an inexpensive self catering apartment near the main events which will be held on the beach close to the Congress Center. I'm trying to put together a budget for the trip so I was wondering if anyone out there has any idea of approximately how much groceries for 4 people would cost per week. Or even a few individual prices to give us some idea. For example, How much is a large tin of coffee? 2 liter bottle of water? Bag of pasta? Pasta sauces? Bread? Beer? etc etc..... Any advise would be really appreciated. Thanks, Sue
