Its territory can be ideally divided into four major areas: Seimiglia hills, the capital with its valley, the plain of Capezzano and the coastline of Lido. Indeed, this area is one of the few places in the world where one can find such a combination of landscapes and sceneries: from the sea to the hills, from the mountains to the lakes, from the beach to the Apuan Alps Natural Park. Camaiore has Roman origins and it is worth visiting its pretty, ancient village centre, where the predestrian street of Via Vittorio Emanuele represents the decumano and the hub of the historical centre; here and in the nearby streets there are all the main services, shops, pubs, restaurants, and so forth.
