A member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, this elegant hotel offers a wonderful seafront setting.
Built in the 1920s and restored in 2004, this classic hotel offers a mixture of original charm and sophisticated grandeur and is a renowned landmark in Viareggio. Enjoy wonderful sea views and pleasant walks along the promenade or make your way up to the fifth-floor rooftop pool and soak up the sun while enjoying snacks and drinks from the bar. At sunset the bar transforms into a pool bar – perfect for enjoying a cocktail while admiring the beautiful views over the sea and mountains. Beach lovers will be happy to learn that the hotel has a section of private beach (payable locally, reservation required), complete with sun loungers, deck chairs, a bar, restaurant, seawater swimming pool and Jacuzzi.
Dining is another fantastic experience at the Principe di Piemonte. Enjoy fine dining at Regina, either indoors or on the veranda. A glass of wine from the extensive wine list will provide the perfect accompaniment to the delicious dishes. Il Piccolo Principe (open for dinner from May to October) is a two-Michelin-starred restaurant serving up exquisite cuisine and a grand list of fine wines from the hotel's wine cellar which boasts 800 labels and is available for exclusive wine tastings. Its rooftop setting makes any dining occasion just that little bit more special. Enjoy a pre or post-dinner drink outdoors on the terrace or in the refined piano bar.
The elegant rooms are set over five floors which each have a different theme including modern, Art Deco and colonial. Classic Rooms have views of the Apuan Alps while Superior Rooms have a side or full sea view. For a little extra space opt for one of the Deluxe Side Seaview Rooms which overlook the Piazza Giacomo Puccini.
