Versilia and Toscana countryside in winter.

Versilia is the name given to a stretch of Toscano coastline that is approximately 12 miles long. It is backed by hills planted with olive trees and vines while in the distance are the snow-topped Apuan mountains. With a history going back to Neolithic times there are plenty of archaeological sites and medieval villages to explore or you can enjoy invigorating shoreline walks around Lake Massaciuccoli. 

Without the heat of the Summer, winter is the perfect time to climb and trek in the Apuan Alps Park just under an hour's drive from your hotel. On the way, stop off at Pietrasanta. This charming village has become a magnet for artists from all over the world. The marble from quarries such as those at Carrera lent itself to sculptures and statues and Pietrasanta is now something of an open-air museum with art on display in its public piazzas. Its many galleries also show ever-changing exhibitions of contemporary art alongside more classical highlights.

From your hotel, it's easy to browse the local markets of Forte dei Marmi, Marina di Massa and Tonfano. They all take on a seasonal charm over the festive period. Just along the coastline from Lido di Camaiore is the town of Viareggio, famous for its carnival which takes place over four Sundays and a Tuesday between January and early March. Enjoy this spectacle of lavishly decorated papier-mâché floats and outrageous costumes accompanied by musicians and dancers.

Within an hour's drive of the Versilia Lido | UNA Esperienze in Lido di Camaiore are the cities of Florence and Pisa. Spend a day in each of these soakings up their history and culture. Highlights of Florence are the Uffizi Gallery and the Duomo while in Pisa you have the iconic Leaning Tower, the Baptistery and the Sacred Field. If you are thinking of spending a day in Florence or Pisa during your wellness break in Versilia then avoid the queues by going online to buy tickets to the main attractions in advance.

Winter festivals in Tuscany are very often dedicated to food making the most of delicious local produce. In November these include the Festa di San Martino e dei Bringoli which is all about pasta and meat sauce.  Chestnuts and red wine are celebrated in San Gimignano while on the island of Capraia is the Squid Competition and Festival. In December there is the Festival of Olive Oil in San Quirico d'Orcia and, of course, Christmas and New Year celebrations in every village and town.

If you want to start the year ahead as fit and relaxed as possible, then now is the time to think about planning a wellness and spa break in Versilia Tuscany. Book with Gruppo UNA now to enjoy a relaxing and indulgent few days at the Versilia Lido | UNA Esperienze.
