Every year the Federation for Evironmental Education honours Quality seal blue flags to the coastlines noted as hygeinic, secure, and have first-class ambient awareness strategies. The Region of Tuscany has it’s decent portion of Blue Flag shores, along the length of its pristine coastline.
Tuscan expert’s Best Beaches
In summary, with Lucca as your first point, the more down (south) the coast you navigate in the Region of Tuscany, the more stunning the coast become, and, unless you’re in the highest time of year, you’ll find less fellow tourists too. These are evidently the beaches that require the longest time to reach from Florence, but the differences are precious.
The Coast for the Fashion Conscious
Although at the beaches of Lucca (Forte dei Marmi, Camaiore, Viareggio) you’ll find all the amenities typical of any beach resort, you’d be disappointed if you sought a beach that is silent and detached. If you’re a teenager and searching for a weekend by the sea with discoteques and pubs, Viareggio is not going to dissapoint.
Summary: from Firenze, excellent services and Late night life.
Top Beaches for Families
In contrast, if you’re a family group, the shores of Livorno (Antignano, Quercianella, Rosignano, Cecina, Bibbona, Castagneto, San Vincenzo) are a good choice as they can be easy reached from Florence (Seventy/ninetyminutes by bus) and have accommodation and services with focus on family stays.
Brief Conclusion: 70 minutes/90 minutes from Florence, family tailored.
Formidable Beaches of Beauty
For the foremost beaches, defined here as the joining of the most picturesque landscapes with the most clear waters, there is a shared admittance in the locals that Grosetto (Follonica, Castiglione della Pescaia, Monte Argentario) always deliver.
Crisp Conclusion: An hour and a half from Firenze, fewer services, more panoramas.
