and environs covers a surface of 165 square kilometres,
including the province of Lucca. It occupies the north-western
part of Tuscany, between the ridge of the Apuan Alps and
the Tyrrhenian Sea, with a coastal strip of about 20 kilometres
in length. The south is bordered by the Lake of Massaciuccoli
and the thichet of Migliarino, white the north is bordered
by the mouth of the Cinquale.
The territory of Versilia is divided into
the administrative Communes of Pietrasanta, Forte di Marmi,
Seravezza and Stazzema. Camaiore, Massarosa and Viareggio
are the outskirs. It is a strip of coastline 10 kilometres
wide at its minimum and 18 at its maximum. Despite this,
the natural environments are quite varied. In fact, from
Versilia's highest peak, la Pania della Croce, 1859 metres
above sea level, to Forte dei Marmi, it is only 15 kilometres
in a beeline.
The climate is naturally affected by the
geographical configuration of this territory. At sea level,
during the hot seasons, the mountains moderate the humidity,
while the winter is more temperate due to the beneficial
influence of the sea.
