VERSILIA, ON TUSCANY'S NORTHERN COAST, is a stretch of lovely beach resorts and charming villages. Our home base is Viareggio, known for its lively seaside promenade, Liberty-style architecture, shops, cafés and restaurants—perfect for the traditional evening passeggiata. We've included an excursion to a marble quarry in Carrara, before heading to historic Pietrasanta—a refined art town of tiny galleries and artisan workshops—for a visit and lunch. Visit Pisa's famous Campo dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles) with its graceful Duomo, cupcake-like Baptistry, and the (in)famous leaning bell tower; elegant Lucca with its handsome piazzas and shady promenades; and Livorno—with a colorful history and cosmopolitan heritage. “Intense beauty, great cuisine and amazing aromas….” That's how NYTimes.com describes the wildly charming Cinque Terre where we'll have lunch and a wine-tasting on this full-day visit. Capping off this holiday is an excursion to off-the-beaten track Pistoia—with its old walls, striped churches, frescoes, medieval watchtowers and arcaded piazzas—everything we're looking for in an old Tuscan city.
