We chose La Viareggina based on reviews from this and other websites and due to the personal B+B that is was purported to be. We couldnt have been happier with our choice. The B+B is only 10 minutes from the train station so is ideal for those travelling around Italy using public transport. It is also only 1 block from the seafront and probably 5-10 minutes from the public part of the beach. When we arrived we were greeted by Senora Anna and one other staff member. They lugged our heavy bags upstairs and showed us to our beautiful, airy and clean room. Anna could not have been more helpful getting us set-up and orienated to where we were. She recommended us a great pizza stand by the beach that served great slices and Cecina (pancake made from chickpeas i think) to set us up for the day. She also directed us to a local restuarant almost unknown by tourists where we could get local, quality food and wine without being treated like cattle. La Viareggina also has a cute back patio area for chilling with some wine and apperetivos! The breakfast that Anna served us was fantastic- cereal, fruit, yoghurt, meat, cheese and breads. The highlight for me was her homeade lemon cake and frothy capuchinos! I would stay at La Viareggina again without question and I highly recommend it. Anna's personality and personal touch was most appreciated throughout and we really felt we were staying with a friend's Aunt!
