The Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte provides an ideal setting for guests interested in going on organized day trips with marine biologists, as the luxury hotel is a 30-minute stroll from the Piazza Palombari dell'Artiglio, where the boat tours depart. The boat tours are organized by cooperatives that support the protection and peace of the dolphins and whales in the Pelagos Sanctuary. Established in 1999 between Italy, France, and Monaco, the sanctuary is an international reserve that extends north of the Tyrrhenian Sea, around the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago to Provence. Viareggio is one of the main starting points for exploring the Italian Cetacean Sanctuary via boat, where guests enjoy lunch on board, watch for whales and dolphins, as well as seeing a variety of marine animals like turtle, manta rays, swordfish and tuna.
