The Area

Just minutes from the Mediterranean Sea, visitors often like to spend time on the beach. With easy access to both free public beaches and posh beach clubs, there is something for everyone.  Head to the east over the mountains, a beautiful 20 minute drive, and you will find Lucca, one of the few Italian towns which still have completely intact Roman walls surrounding the city center.  One of the most famous symbols of Italy, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is just a short drive or train ride away.

Villa Cenami is conveniently located just minutes from the entrance to the A11 Autostrada, which takes you to Florence in just under an hour by car, train or bus from Villa Cenami.  In the other direction you can reach the breathtaking 5 towns of Cinqueterre and Portofino. Not much further on is Genova with its renowned aquarium. Rome can be easily reached in 3.5 hours by car or direct train from Viareggio. One of our favorite recommendations is a day trip through the hills of Siena and the Chianti wine region.

Depending on the things you would like to do and the sights you would like to see it may be easier to take the train rather than go by car. We can help you start planning your trip in advance or assist you when you arrive, just let us know how we can help. At the Villa we have information on restaurants and attractions, lists of directions and maps available for your use. Although the flats are independent for the week, we do have a staff member on site 24 hours day for assistance and to answer any questions.

We at Villa Cenami always suggest getting out and seeing what Italy has to offer. The land is beautiful, the people are friendly and the food is amazing.  But if you choose to spend your vacation relaxing in your private apartment or strolling the grounds of our Villa, we assure you that your vacation will be just as unforgettable.
