  • Ancient and modern that blend together are a perfect combination. The Museum is interactive, you listen to the explanations narrated by actors in period costumes. Recreate the stories of the pilgrims on the via Francigena, the history of the Eastern riviera with details of the Lunigiana and surroundings. Beautiful wing dedicated to the life of the Court and village. I don't want to reveal everything but when you see a throne if you have a baby sit him, will be involved in for a treat. Always kids there is a model of the castle to be rebuilt. We could only visit the Museum, the normal admission fee is 6 euro, children under six years of age, 6-14 reduced. Though the price allows you to visit the dungeons, climb the tower and enjoy the view on the beautiful terrace.

  • The Citadel or Firmafede fortress is of medieval origin and its history is identified with that of Sarzana. Castruccio Castracani, the Florentines come into play that destroyed it and them rebuilt with Lorenzo de ' Medici. He then moved on to the Genoese. Regular quadrilateral shape, with a central keep, massive walls and moat.

  • The citadel is very nice. However, its navigation is extremely confusing due to the complete absence of any signs whatsoever. As a tourist attraction, it's a complete disaster of those who are supposed to manage it.
  • Visited yesterday afternoon, without a guide is somewhat difficult to immerse themselves fully in the history that you should breathe within these walls. The fortification is impressive although still very much restored and sometimes in the Interior almost rebuilt. Recommend a visit with audioguide only otherwise I'll enjoy it fully! However compared to the nearby fortress of Sarzanello, loses much.

  • Beautiful Fort in two steps from downtown, you get to walk quietly, too bad it's always closed, except in rare occasions to exhibitions or concerts, a pity.

  • Fortress open internally with a guided tour. I highly recommend joining because it is a structure that is worth a visit!
