Beaches in Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna

Does any one have suggestions for nice beach towns in Tuscany or Emilia-Romagna?

I am trying to find a nice beach that is a short drive from Florence.

Cecina is pleasant. No scenery to speak of, but lots of beach. It's about 1 1/2 to 2 hours from Florence.

Viareggio was the most popular original beach resort for Florence due to excellent train service between the two. Its development in the 1920's was rapid and it is still an excellent place to visit. Lots of Liberty style architecture, an extensive beach, boats of every sort, wonderful people watching along a store-lined 'lungomare', miles of piney wooded parks, an open market area, etc. Great place to visit, but the beaches won't remind you of home.

We spent a day at a great beach in Tirrenia. It's about 1:40 drive from Florence.
