Solo travel experience

Viareggio is an elegant, peaceful beach resort pretty close to Cinque Terre. Most visitors were italian and the vibe was very chill, friendly and rafinated at the same time. I rented a room with a local italian woman, in a beautiful epoque house. You can walk to the beach, restaurants, train station, supermarket etc but I there were many cycling aswell. There is live music every night and many nice places to dine and have a drink. The beach is well organized and clean.
