Pilgrimage to Tuscany – 2017:

leaning-tower-of-pisa

Sunday 1st October 2017 – Sunday 8th October 2017

Apart from its natural beauty (or maybe because of it) Tuscany has been home to many famous people. Almost every town and village has nurtured its own Saint, Poet or Painter and is still proud to salute his/her memory. Great names such as Fra Angelico, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and St. Catherine, all were cradled in Tuscany. Viareggio, with its long beach of fine sand is one of the leading resorts on the Tuscan coastline. Although its heyday was at the turn of the century, Viareggio still retains some of the grandeur of the epoch, with its fine Art Nouveau buildings lining the expansive promenade.
