Visit the new theatre near Lake Massaciuccoli, dedicated to Giacomo Puccini, followed by the Villa Puccini Museum, Puccini’s former home where he composed most of his operas, conserving all the things in their original locations and even the piano he used. You can also arrange a visit to Villa Orlando, where civil weddings are celebrated. Take a boat ride across the lake, where you'll find Roman ruins. But there’s also the lush LIPU Oasis and the Massaciuccoli Romana archeological area.
The journey continues to Pieve a Elici, situated on the hill top in Massarosa; there, you can visit the Parish Church of San Pantaleone, rebuilt in the 12th century over the ruins of an earlier medieval building. Next, go to Corsanico and visit its church: let your eyes adjust to the Rococo-style interior, then look up to admire Vincenzo Colonna’s “Monumental” organ, built between 1602 and 1606. If you want to hear it work, we recommend timing your visit for the music festival in July and August.
