    Our opinion

     The Plaza e De Russie is a charming hotel right on the sea front in the timeless seaside resort of Viareggio.

    Hotel description

    This beautiful, Liberty-style villa was constructed in 1871 and was one of the first hotels in Viareggio, when the fishing village was becoming popular with wealthy aristocrats. The hotel was completely renovated in 1994 and retains its grand splendour with majestic marble bathrooms, the finest fabrics and furnishings and hand blown chandeliers from Murano. All the public rooms are elegantly furnished with the original hard wood floors and traditional furniture and antiques. The 50 bedrooms are tastefully furnished with cherry-wood furniture and delicate coloured fabrics. Some rooms overlook the internal courtyard, whilst others look out over the boulevard below or out to sea.
    The hotel’s restaurant, La Terrazza, is situated on the top floor and has magnificent panoramic views of the sea and the Apuan Alps behind Viareggio. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the chef serves local specialities, with a particular emphasis on fish dishes.
    It is a short walk to Viareggio’s smart shops, bars and restaurants and the sandy beach of Viareggio is just across the road. The hotel allows guests complimentary use of the beach swimming pool, as well as sun loungers and a sun umbrella in peak season. Viareggio is the perfect place to stay should you be keen to visit Pisa, Lucca or the other seaside towns along the Versilia coast.
