Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Ideally located along the main promenade of Viareggio, this majestic art deco property offers stellar levels of service in a stylish and romantic setting. From the moment you stroll through the doors of this former 19th century palazzo, you'll be immersed in old world charm with wooden floors and beams offset against modern and stylish furnishings. Each of the rooms located within this prestigious building are decorated differently with chic and modern influence; rooms are spacious with good amenities and some offer spectacular views out towards the sea.

Plaza e de Russie is also home to Michelin starred restaurant, Lunasia (pre-booking required, payable locally), which is open for lunch and dinner under the guide and flair of Chef Luca Landi. The menu encapsulates the region with ingredients sourced locally and organically. The dining room is elegant and even offers glass a verriere so you can watch Chef Luca and his team preparing your meal. After a sumptuous meal, why not head to the ultramodern cocktail bar in the lobby where you can embrace La Dolce Vita with an aperitivo in hand as the sun descends behind the sea and casts Viareggio in an amber glow.

Transfer time: approx. 35 mins by private car from Pisa Airport.

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.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service on the Tuscan Coast.
