Massaciuccoli Lake

Massaciuccoli Lake is situated in the homonymous area, and it represents the remains of a deltaic lagoon formed by the river Serchio and afterwards isolated by the floods of the river. The lake - no more than 2 meters deep - is rich in flora and fauna which are very interesting from a naturalistic point of view. The two centers Torre del Lago and Massaciuccoli are situated on the shores of the lake. The former is famous because Giacomo Puccini lived there for a long time. Nowadays his villa on the lake shores is a museum. In the area in front of the villa, every summer a opera season dedicated to Puccini's works is held in the open air.
