Viareggio - Torre del Lago - Toscana

Viareggio and Torre del Lago, Mediterranean towns along the "Friendly Versilia", continue to be hotspots for summer holidays. But at the time of going to print (January 2014), the question which locations would cater to the gay community, and what with, could unfortunately not be answered yet. Please visit the initiative's homepage at http://www.friendlyversilia.it for more details. 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.
