Gay Guide Viareggio - Torre del Lago - Toscana
Viareggio and Torre del Lago, Mediterranean towns along the "Friendly Versilia", continue to be hotspots for summer holidays. Most venues are located in Viale Europa, directly by the sea. The homepage http://www.friendlyversilia.it is recommended for getting all the latest information. A gay infrastructure including bars, restaurants, discotheques and special events has been developing around the beach "La Lecciona" since the end of the 90s. The high season here runs from June to August, with up to ten thousand homosexuals in the middle of August, now as before. Compared to this, the early and late seasons tend to be rather quiet, except at the weekend. Various options are available for overnight stays: virtually all the hotels are located in Viareggio, while gay bed & breakfasts can be found in the directly adjoining Torre del Lago, which is where the gay nightlife is centred.
