Inhabited since the time of the Neanderthals and urbanized during the Roman period, experienced a strong development during the middle ages. The victory of Lucca to Pisa, which controlled the territory, allowed Camaiore to turn himself in as a citizen. The whole area was protected by a wall of which only some ruins remain today.

The city is known as a seaside resort, popular and appreciated for your accommodations avant-garde and entertainment features. A walk along the "Pontile Bellavista Vittoria" at Lido di Camaiore allows you to enjoy the view shared by the coast on one side and the Apuan Alps on the other.
