Royal Hotel Victoria, lungarno Pacinotti
Distinguished guests: The guest books are a great testimony of the many visitors who passed through the hotel. Among the signatures and dedications we recognize Charles Dickens, John Ruskin, Virginia Woolf, Paolina Leopardi, Gabriele D'Annunzio, Giulio Einaudi and numerous royal families from every continent.
- L'amore ritrovato (An Italian Romance) (2004) by Carlo Mazzacurati with Stefano Accorsi and Maya Sansa.
- Puccini e la Fanciulla (Puccini and the Girl) (2008) by the Pisan Paolo Benvenuti. A room on the top floor of the hotel was completely modified to shoot some scenes of the film set in 1908 in Torre del Lago, where the villa of the composer from Lucca Giacomo Puccini is located. At that time, he was working on the opera La Fanciulla del West (The Girl of the West). For adherence to the historical context, and to add pathos to the story, the director decided not to use sound, practically making it a silent film. Only the sounds of footsteps, the rustling, the gunfire and the screams can be heard.
- L’amica geniale (My brilliant friend) (7th episode, II season of the TV series, 2019) shot in the building of the Royal Victoria Hotel; instead of it being a hotel, it is the college where Lenù, one of the two protagonists, lives.
