Just back from Viareggio in Italy - what a rip off - holiday travellers are not allowed to lie on the beach - you are obliged to rent a parasol/ sunlounger for approx 15-20 euros per day for two persons. What local itialian government gave permission for local seafront hotels/restaurants to start owing sections of the beach.
If you intend to visit - it's best to rent a bike as the free beach was about a mile from our hotel.
The resort is not what I expected although you can travel by train to Florence and a nearby town of Lucca is worth the visit and seemed a lot more reasonable for food than Viareggio itself.
If you want to get the train to Rome its about 3 hour journey costing 66 euro per person return
The food was not great in Viareggio - any restaurant we visited was expensive as well - we were obliged to go eat in a chinese restaurant on two different nights and tolerate not very good food on the rest of the evenings in local restaurants
A resort which is expensive and not worth the money -
