Default Viareggio The City That Makes The Most Expensive Boats In the World

http://www.bbc.com/news/business-40681345

Wandering along the beach in Italy's Viareggio you could be forgiven for thinking it's simply a holiday resort.
Yet the umbrella-lined, sandy beaches dotted with tourists mask another role, one at the heart of the shipping industry.
This unassuming seaside city is where some of the world's largest and most exclusive vessels are made.

Viareggio is where about a fifth of these gigantic elite boats are made. It's the "cradle of shipbuilding" is how the city's mayor Giorgio del Ghingaro sums it up.
