What to do in Versilia in the fall

Versilia has a unique appeal at any time of the year, but it is particularly charming in the fall. The green of the trees' foliage begins to take on new shades that vary from red to orange and yellow, creating picturesque landscapes. It's time to take a mini-vacation to discover new territories and the Tuscan Riviera proves to be a rather popular destination.

So here's what to do in Versilia in autumn.


Walking on the waterfront in Viareggio

Beach lovers cannot miss the opportunity to take a walk in Viareggio by the seafront, caressed by the sea breeze that becomes more and more intense with colder weather.

In particular, the unmissable appointment of the weekend is La Passeggiata, where you can enjoy a long walk to the pier, admiring the windows of elegant boutiques on all sides.

It is then worth stopping in one of the many cafes to drink a frothy cappuccino or a hot chocolate.


Visit the local markets

If you're staying at the Grand Hotel & Riviera in Lido di Camaiore, don't forget to visit the Monday morning town market.

It allows you to enjoy a couple of hours among a wide variety of products, some of them typical of the area. You can also buy some souvenirs to bring to friends and family at home.

Another market not to miss during your fall getaway in Versilia is the one in Forte dei Marmi. It is an actual open-air boutique, where you can buy the best Made in Italy products at very affordable prices. Handicrafts, leather goods, and clothing brands will ensure you a pleasant day of shopping.


Go to the Lucca Comics & Games international fair 

You can not visit Versilia in autumn without passing by the nearby Lucca, which at this time of year becomes the scene of one of the largest fairs of comics at the international level.

From October 29 to November 1, the renowned Lucca Comics & Games takes place in this medieval city. Whether you're a fan of manga, video games, and animation, or you're just curious to see the city full of people in masks, it doesn't matter. Rest assured that Lucca Comics will involve you in a world of events, projects, and initiatives not to be missed.
