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.

Le jardin est grand et très bien entretenu, on peut en profiter comme on veut. La maison est bien située , à proximité des commerces , de la plage et des principaux sites touristiques (Lerici, Portovenere, Pise...) Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et font tout pour rendre le séjour agréable. C'est vraiment une belle propriété pour passer des vacances en famille, au calme et profiter de la région !

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.

Mooie uitstapjes naar Lucca, Cinque Terre, Pisa en Fosdonivo. Ook erg leuk was het adventure park Fosdinovo. Dat is zeker een bezoek waard! Voor groot en klein. De eigenaren hebben ons naar mooie plekjes gestuurd en goed geadviseerd waar we informatie over vroegen. Heel behulpzaam dus. Bovendien is het huisje mooi en netjes ingericht. Wij hebben en prima vakantie gehad!!
