Camaiore’s history begins in 190 B.C., and its name comes from Campus Maior, which is Latin for “wide flat land”. The street Via Vittorio Emanuele, also called Via di Mezzo, runs through the historic center. It is a pedestrian street, flanked with shops, bars, and restaurants. The focal point of the historic center is the square Piazza San Bernardino da Siena, with its church Collegiata di Santa Maria Assunta.
Lido di Camaiore is one of the renowned beach tourism locations in Versilia. The feather in its cap is its pier Pontile Bellavista Vittoria, more widely known as Pontile di Lido di Camaiore. Opened in 2008, this structure is a true promenade over the sea, culminating in the wine bar Il Pontile sul Mare, with an overhead terrace with a 360-degree panoramic view.
The hills surrounding Camaiore are the ideal destination for nature lovers and history and art enthusiasts. In addition to several hiking paths and guided walks, in the areas in the hills you can find ancient churches, which are real hidden treasures to be explored. From up here, you can admire the fantastic view of Camaiore and its belltowers, the surrounding countryside and hills, and the coast.
The medieval village Monteggiori is located atop a small mountain. Its name, not by chance, means “small mountain”. You can park your car in the wide parking lot next to the small graveyard, as it is impossible to access the village by car – there isn’t enough space to drive along the narrow cobbled lanes. One of the most renowned restaurants in Versilia, Le Tre Terrazze (“The Three Terraces”), is located in Monteggiori. Besides its cuisine, the restaurant is famous for its panoramic view over Versilia.
The slightly hilly area of Pieve is named after its main church, Pieve di Camaiore dei Santi di Santo Stefano e Giovanni. In medieval center-northern Italy, the term “pieve” – from the Latin word plebs, people – indicated a parish.
