Everyone is on the street in the evening and the shops are open until 11:30pm. There are accesses to the beach! Even though most of the beaches close at 8pm

I go to Viareggio every summer and I always go to this passeggiata everyday. There’s a lot of restaurants and shops and it’s near the beach. There’s a lot see and it’s safe because there are police around the area

I’d count it as 2 miles as its a mile each way! Lots of opportunities to stop for a drink though!
