Booking a car rental in Viareggio is a perfect place to start your trip due to its proximity to both the Italian Riviera and to the beautiful region of Tuscany. Originally settled as a port town for the nearby city of Lucca, Viareggio is a young city by Italian standards, having been designated as a municipality only in 1701. During the 18th century, Viareggio was located in a marshy area that was insalubrious, malaria and other diseases made the lives of the early inhabitants very difficult. It wasn't until the late 18th century that the city of Lucca began to drain the marshlands to encourage migration to the new town. The beginning of the 20th century saw development in the tourism industry, and the passeggiata (promenade) was built with a variety of cafes and shops along the street. Today, Viareggio is known as a seaside resort famous for its summer carnivals.Viareggio Rail Station Car Rentals
