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.

We have returned because we love the home and the area. We enjoyed walking in the Apouane Alps, visiting the lovely hillside villages and relaxing at Lerici beach.

In the house there was a book with a lot of good descriptions of good places to go. Good restaurant. Beautiful beaches, etc. A great help as you experience the bedst of your vacation. that was the first time we were in Italy on vacation, Great ice cream, delicious food and fine wine. Beautiful nature area. I hope we will one day come back. In the Danish winter we will talk about our successful holiday. Good holiday to anyone who has to be lucky to experience this beautiful house.
