This picturesque, small town in northern Italy has a long history that stretches back more than 1,000 years. Sarzana’s first mention in the records was towards the end of the 10th century. Many ancient buildings survive to this day in the historic centre including towers, forts and churches. As well as admiring well-preserved architecture, visitors to Sarzana can enjoy the local boutiques and restaurants, nearby beaches and the ruins of an important Roman city.

Things to do

-Historic monuments: Among Sarzana’s best known attractions are its two fortresses. The Cittadella or Firmafede Fortress has been a significant Sarzana landmark since its construction in 1249. Over the centuries the stronghold has been used as a defensive structure, prison and shelter for citizens after WW2. Today it hosts many cultural events. Sarzanello Castle is situated in the countryside overlooking Sarzana.

-Religious buildings: Sarzana’s cathedral is a Romanesque-Gothic structure with a white marble façade and was built between 1204 and 1474. Inside are important religious paintings by Francesco Solimena and Domenico Fiasella. The oldest religious building in the town is the Parish of St. Andrew built during the 10th and 11th centuries.

-Food and drink: Travellers who stay in holiday villas in Sarzana have an array of fine restaurants on their doorstep that serve regional dishes. These include rabbit stew, fried tripe and salt cod. Focaccia, the flat, Italian oven-baked bread is a favourite, particularly when served with olive oil and salt.

-Family activities: Sarzana is less than ten kilometres from the sandy beaches of Marinella di Sarzana. The frequent strong winds make them popular with windsurfers and sailing enthusiasts. On Sarzana’s outskirts are the ancient ruins of Luni, once a Roman city. Among the notable points of interest are the Temple of Luna, the amphitheatre and the Archaeological Museum.

Beautiful accommodation in a lovely location

5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in the La Merla apartment (23rd to 27th August 2015). The apartment was finished to a high standard - as seen in the pictures. The village of Caniparola was a great location, a short drive to Sanzana and with excellent restaurants on the doorstep. Everyone we met and organised the stay with was friendly and helpful and we are already planning to come back next year to explore the area further.
