Italian beach break, anyone? We’ve got you covered with these coastal and countryside hotels in Tuscany’s most stylish seaside city.

Viareggio, a small seaside city along Tuscany’s twisting coastline, is famous for its annual carnival, which dates back to the 19th century and takes place in the run up to Lent, between late January and early March. But Viareggio is no one-trick town: its long sandy beach and parasol-studded coastline make it a perfect summer destination for beach bums and seafood fans – and, thanks to its mild climate, most hotels are open year-round. Whatever your preferences, these hotels will make you feel right at home.

Couples looking for a romantic getaway will love this 1920s-style hotel. During Viareggio’s heyday, renowned designers and artists including the Florentine Galileo Chini filled the seaside town’s main boulevard with art nouveau ornaments – from hotels and restaurants to public changing rooms for beach-going guests. The hotel’s stuccoed, stained-glass entrance and high ceilings adorned with gilded chandeliers are a reminder of that golden age. Couple-friendly activities organised by the hotel include bike tours and day trips to mirror-like Massaciuccoli lake.
