Versilia Supply Service
Viareggio is the home of Italian yacht construction, with most of the major yacht builders, engineering companies and suppliers within walking distance of our offices.
The town itself is a popular year-round resort, with excellent shopping and restaurants close to the port. Entertainment is extremely broad, from athriving night life all year round, to a massive local carnival, and varies from power boat racing to the Puccini Opera Festival.
Viareggio is perfectly situated in Tuscany for sightseeing trips to such beautiful places as the walled city of Lucca and to Pisa with its famous Leaning Tower. Whilst Florence, Siena and the whole Chianti region is easily accessible. Michelangelo came to the mountains above the town for the same white marble which is used in many yachts and is still exported world-wide. The area is perfect for hiking and mountain biking between villages, or if you wish to travel further afield, Viareggio’s central location with its excellent road, rail and air links make it a perfect place for yacht owners and guests to visit. Or a great place for captain and crew to work and play during a refit.
