(3.5/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
Lake Massaciuccoli is a lake in the Province of Lucca, Tuscany, Italy. Its surface area is 6.9 km². It is located mainly in the municipality of Massarosa and partly in Torre del Lago, a civil parish of Viareggio.The lake was known in ancient times as the Fossis Papirianis, a name used in the Tabula Peutingeriana. The composer Giacomo Puccini lived nearby and frequently hunted around the lake; the nearby village of Torre del Lago is sometimes mentioned with suffix "Puccini" in his honour.The lake is home to the large extent of Cladium mariscus in Italy. However, vegetation and wildlife have shrunken substantially since the 20th century, due to Eutrophication and expansion of Louisianan Crayfish.

  • Truly a beautiful place, a picture-perfect scenery, very quiet and surrounded by nature, there are also the ducks that swim quiet and beate, only flaw: there is no place where you can grab something to eat, you know. A beautiful stage for the scenery, but nothing more

  • Beautiful Lake and tranquil atmosphere, but there is almost nothing. To eat, I had to move somewhere else! In the water there is full of ducks and other birds; the scenery is very beautiful.

  • Beautiful place, quiet reigns and the landscape is postcard. Sin is exploited very badly looks like an abandoned place, perhaps the period when we were not the best.
