Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The Grand Hotel Royal is in prime position on Viareggio’s main promenade. It’s just across the road from the famous Tuscan Coast – which you’ll be able to make the most of, as a private beach service is included for guests from May to the end of September.

Characterful, grand rooms, with high ceilings and opulent details give an air of the glamorous age in which the liberty style building was built. The bedrooms have this feel too, with all the modern comforts, providing a quiet retreat away from the buzz of the town outside.

The train station is a short walk from the hotel, so you can easily travel to the beautiful Cinque Terre villages or take day trip to places like Lucca and Pisa. There’s so much to explore in this area! But, when you’re not out and about, the hotels gardens are a lovely place to relax. Among the trees you’ll find the pool, surrounded by sun loungers and parasols. There’s also a snack bar out here if you fancy a light lunch or refreshing drink.

Dinners in the restaurant are a real treat – there’s lots of choice and the food is beautifully presented. The last thing to mention is the staff. They’re incredibly helpful and friendly – they’ll go out of their way to make sure you have a great holiday.

Transfer time: approx. 30 mins by private car from Pisa Airport.

Tuscany Coast

The Tuscany Coast has been a favoured Italian beach retreat since Roman times. But it really flourished in the early 20th century, when cities like Viareggio decorated the promenade with art deco beach clubs and art nouveau hotels.

Travel north from Viareggio, and you’ll come across Marina di Pietrasanta and its panoramic pier. Forte dei Marmi is right next door – a stylish beach town with sculpture parks and a summer fireworks festival.

Fancy exploring further afield? Fast trains zip from the Tuscany Coast to Pisa and Florence via the rolling Tuscan countryside.
