- The motorway takes us to the Shopinn Outlet Village, where we can find dozens of bargains in the 70 outlet shops: men's, women's and children's fashion, shoes, bags, accessories, lingerie and swimwear, sport, jewellery, home and lifestyle, beauty and catering.
- When we have finished our shopping, we'll move on to Sarzana, a town in the fertile plain of the River Magra, which reveals an incredible artistic heritage to its visitors. We begin by walking along streets lined with period buildings from the town's old Porta Romana gateway, as far as the Citadel, an old Genoese fortress that one time served as a prison but is now an exhibition centre. As we continue, we discover other fascinating buildings such as the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and the 16th-century Town Hall with its unusual open-air courtyard filled with interesting archaeological finds from the excavations at Luni.
