Mamagamma

Mamagamma nasce dall’idea, dalla volontà, di creare un "attivatore" artistico/culinario che utilizzi come spunto di partenza il cabaret Voltaire famoso locale con intenzioni artistiche, fondato a Zurigo nel 1916 dal Hugo Ball e da Emmy Hennings, considerato universalmente la culla del dadaismo.

Suprising new tastes, 14 starters and one secondi for 28€, 1/4 wine and desert. Very very nice interior. Wide range of music, some I would say not suited for normal restaurants. But this is a sort of rebellion artistic restaurant / community hub. Would recommend for food and atmosfere.

Gelateria Biagi

Reviewed By John P - La Spezia, Italy

I've been to the famous Vivoli in Firenze, to many, many gelaterie, and after almost 30 years of sampling and searching, I have to say that nowhere have I ever found ice cream of such consistently outrageously good quality as at Biagi in Sarzana. The fruit ice creams and sorbets are to die for. They taste more intensely of the fruit than the fruit itself. The Pistacchio is unbelievable, without that ghastly artificial green colour that so many places insist on adding. Their coffee ice cream is divine; smooth, creamy, rich, aromatic & toasted exactly right. I could go on for ever. Just go there and try some. They also serve to take away.

Cantine Lunae

Reviewed By FredrikHenry - Sweden

Very nice rustic and elegant cantine. Professional staff speaking several languages and very helpful. Bosoni produces the best vermentino in Italy and sells it to a good price too. If you buy boxes, 6 or 12 bottles, you get a big discount. You can also fill your own bottle at a price of approx. €2 per litre. Also the red wines are perfect, try Nicolo V Riserva.

Centro Storico del Paese di Tellaro

Reviewed By Jemane - Cairns, Australia

One of the prettiest towns to visit if you're wanting to get away from the crowds. Enjoy the Piazza with its assortment of quant little shops offering something different to the large department stores. The photo opportunities here are limitless. Even the amateur photograher can get stunning shots here. The village is reached easily by public bus with a regular timetable.

Castello Malaspina di Fosdinovo

The Castle, a feud of the branches of the Malaspina del Ramo Fiorito holdings from the fourteenth to the eighteenth century, is of great importance historically, and above all, architecturally. The construction of the massive fortress, which merges with the underlying sandstone rock so the whole structure seems carved in stone, began in the second half of the twelfth century.

We actually stayed in the B&B rooms of this working castle/museum and it was fabulous. Views, history, village below. Ability to have free run of the castle with keys to unlock doors etc.... We explored at night with torches. Very very special

Castello di Lerici

Reviewed By Ruth5757 - St Helens, United Kingdom

Lerici and its dominating castle, built to a typically Genovese design is situated just inside the province of Liguria. Splendid views can be gained over the town and its harbour and of the Lerici Gulf and further across towards Portovenere. Painting and other Exhibitions are quite frequently held inside the castle.

Fortezza di Sarzanello

It's an imposing military fortification erected on the hill of Sarzana, and it overlooks the Magra Valley. Nowadays it's one of the symbol of the town.Known also as castracani, the fortress is composed by two main elements: the former is just the castle with its three bastions on the top, the latter is composed by a fortified embankment. Both the former and the latter form a kind of quad. Rich in charm, the structure undoubtedly deserves to be visited by those people who love culture.

Reviewed By Ian V - Fairbanks, Alaska

The Fortezza di Sarzanello is situated on a small hill just behind the city of Sarzana. It's not very far and you can walk up there: not too far or steep. It's quite nice and the view excellent but nothing compared to real Castles...

Spiaggia Libera Attrezzata Oasi Chiosco

Reviewed By Pulcebella - Cavriglia, Italy

This is a well-maintained "free beach" where you can bring your own beach gear - umbrella included - or rent it for the day. This beach has less pebbles than the usual Ligurian beach as it's favoured by the currents. At the entrance, there's a small free parking area for the tourist that arrives early in the morning or you can find to park around the area. There's a bar selling munchies and drinks.
