Located in Garfagnana, a magical Tuscan green area sandwiched between the Apuan Alps and the main chain of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, the cave GROTTA DEL VENTO is one of the most fascinating in Europe. Here, atmospheric agents incessantly excavate, sculpt and shape the limestone rocks, giving rise to majestic natural sculptures, such as the Panie massif, the enormous natural arch of Monte Forato or the stone waterfalls and crevasses of the Vetricia Plateau. Immersed in a wide variety of karst phenomena, you can admire the wonders of the underground world accompanied by expert guides.

In Viareggio, the multiple presence of buildings, more than thirty, can lead you through a kind of museum itinerary, an itinerary created by the succession of structures characterized, for the most part, by a style of clear modernist derivation, the result of particularly indicative experiments in Viareggio's early twentieth century architecture. Along the famous promenade you can see buildings such as the famous Caffè Margherita, Bagno Balena and Emporio 48, as well as the structures of large hotels and a series of private villas, considered the most important examples of Viareggio architecture of the 1920s. Near the pine forest in the historical center of Viareggio is Villa Argentina, dating from the early 20th century. Group tours can be booked through the Cultural Association of Bourbon Villas and Historical Residences of Versilia, which organizes such tours periodically.


The Festival is one of the most eagerly awaited events in the rich cultural life of Tuscany, the most important opera festival in Italy and the only one in the world dedicated to the composer Giacomo Puccini, and it takes place every summer, in July and August, in the very places that inspired Maestro Puccini with his immortal melodies. Born in 1930, over the years it has become a prestigious event capable of attracting thousands of spectators from all over the world. Puccini's operas are performed in a large open-air theater with 3,400 seats on the shores of Lake Massaciuccoli, surrounded by greenery, in front of maestro Puccini’s Casa Museo, where the musician's remains are kept.

Lake Massaciuccoli is located within the Migliarino, San Rossore and Massaciuccoli Natural Park reserve. The walkable nature trail continues with a level path within a small patch of wet lowland forest. A pleasant and evocative walk that immerses itself in a unique environment where it is possible to observe the typical flora of marshes and hygrophilous woods, insects, fish and other aquatic organisms, and of course, with a little attention, the various species of birds that populate this environment, an important staging, wintering and breeding area. Admission is free and free of charge, daily at any time. An offering can be left at the entrance to the walkway to help maintain free access. Both the walkway and the observatories are accessible to people with disabilities. 
For walkers, history and nature lovers, alternative routes around the Lipu Oasis are also possible. Below we indicate a number of routes, easily walkable and of varying lengths, that affect the landscape surrounding the lake and the Reserve and touch on places of artistic and historical interest.


These are must-see stops to fully understand the charm and culture of Carnival. The Viareggio Carnival Citadel, a symbolic place and a must-see stop for those visiting the city, is Italy's largest thematic center dedicated to masks. Inaugurated in 2001, inside it the magic takes shape and materializes thanks to the magnificent work of the papier-mâché masters. Visiting, then, the Carnival Museum means understanding the process of creating the majestic floats and touching a historical, artistic and cultural heritage of more than a century.
