In a seaside town about which many Italians roll their eyes when you mention it (and quite a few Anglos have never heard of) there's not a huge amount of choice of 4-star hotels. The Plaza is firmly on the list--and has been since the 1870s. Although its 'downtown' location is more in the clatter and rattle of the seaside's particular dynamic, the Plaza sits facing the slightly ragged Piazza d'Azeglio with its side to the Mediterranean promenade. Once inside, daytripper's world is definitely kept outside the door. All marble, beautifully decorated lounge--indeed elegant--and the delight of a wonderful 4th-floor rooftop Terrace Restaurant with superb views, excellent service and good food, too. A little pricey, perhaps, but I believe worth the extra to enjoy a meal here. A return visit after eight years is risking disappointment, happily nothing could be further from the truth. In dealing with the hotel direct (online) I was very pleased to have received a great special offer and my request for a room on the Piazza side was acknowledged promptly and confirmed speedily. On arrival, check-in was seamless and the room was as I'd been promised. A very comfortable room with all mod cons, lovely balcony, airconditioning that actually cooled without excess noise. Very clean room and the luxury of new bedlinens every day. What I consider real luxury. We had one dinner and six lunches in the Terrace restaurant. Breakfast up there, too, very generously laid out and on the terrace if desired (it can get breezy, but pleasant in the summer). Staff were all extremely friendly and efficient. We'll stay again

- On the waterfront, just 40 meters from the beach and the center of a context exquisitely Liberty, the oldest luxury hotel in Viareggio, built in 1871 along the route of the Grand Tour, pays tribute with his name to the Russian nobility who used to spend its long beach holidays right here. At 800 meters from the train station, 2 km from the A12 motorway, 25 km from Pisa Airport. located on the promenade, the hotel is at the center of the area Liberty sort in the early '900, the period when Viareggio become an international showcase where the glories of worldliness join the literary and artistic fervor of the time.

At the Plaza and de Russie the unique sensation of walking on an old wooden floors or soak in a tub framed travertine is completed by the air conditioning and all the modern comforts. We believe it is possible only in very few other situations bring together the suggestions of the environment with the charm of the scents and flavors of the kitchen. From The Terrace, the magnificent restaurant located in the attic of the Plaza and de Russie in Viareggio, you can admire a beautiful landscape that goes from Viareggio to the Gulf of La Spezia.

PRISTINE NATURE There are many reasons that make Viareggio and Versilia overtime. The first is its beautiful beach, characterized by a fine white sand that stretches over 20 km in length and 200 m in width and that, dipping gently into the sea, gives anyone a bathroom safe for the regularity of its shallow waters. Its vast pristine pine forests, which run parallel to the sea, welcome those who want to enjoy their cool climate and fragrant, and Lake Massaciuccoli is a surprising gem.
